DHS is set to purchase another 22.7 million dollars worth of ammo, according to a Government Accountability Office report.

DHS has over 70,000 armed personal and the ammo purchases they claim go to firearm training and qualification requirements. So that means 300 rounds of ammo per armed personal for this year alone for training?

DHS components maintain inventories of ammunition to help ensure they have sufficient ammunition for the training and operational needs of their officers, as there can be months-long delays between placing an order for ammunition and receiving it,” GAO reports. “As of October 2013, DHS estimates it had approximately 159 million rounds in inventory, enough to last about 22 months to meet the training and operational needs of its firearm-carrying personnel.” -thedailycaller.com

So they use hollow point ammo for target pratice? That's strange. In firearm training in the military we only used full metal jacketed rounds and we would commonly hear about how budgets were tight and we needed to make every round count. Heck, we couldn't afford to shoot hollow points if we wanted too.

It seems DHS is the new federal police/standing army in the country and we should all be very weary about it.
