DHS Tells Border Patrol They Have Ammo Shortage

Freedom Outpost by Tim Brown

I know, you are probably thinking like I am after reading the title, Youve got to be kidding! Im not. Even after the Department of Homeland Security indicated that they had nearly 264 million rounds of ammunition back near the end of November 2012, they have sent out an email to Border Patrol agents yesterday informing them that they will not be issued any new proficiency ammunition for next quarter.

Townhall obtained an email sent to Border Patrol agents stationed in the El Centro border sector by a supervisor:

Enforcement Personnel,

Due to budget concerns and ammunition availability, we will not be getting issued any proficiency ammunition for next quarter. In addition to these reductions, we are also being limited to qualification ammo only. What this means to you is that you will not receive the normal 150 rounds for practice and we will not have any extra ammunition for a combat course following normal qualifications.

If you have the ammunition available and would like extra practice during your qualification day, the firearms instructors will have a training course available for Indio Station Personnel, keeping in mind basic marksmanship skills as well as tactical training with a limited amount of ammunition. You are not required to bring your own ammunition.

If you do not have extra ammo to bring, you will be given extra time to clean and maintain your issued handgun as well as station long arms.

If you have any questions about this quarters (sic) quals please feel free to send me your concerns.

Thanks.

According to my previous calculations, not only did DHS inform Tom Coburn that they had an inventory at that time of nearly 264 million round of ammunition (figure that was 73% of the previous three years purchases), but they had also budgeted over $37 million to be spent on ammunition in fiscal year 2013.

The local chapter 2554 of the National Border Patrol Council asks, We get a 32% pay cut, even though Congress gave CBP enough money to cover salaries, and now we cant even maintain proficiency with our service weapons to defend ourselves in the field..Why is there an ammunition shortage? Why cant Border Patrol agents get enough ammunition to maintain proficiency, especially at a time of increased cross-border smuggling and illegal activity? Where is all this ammunition going?

This is serious national security threat as well when your border agents are not properly armed. However, it is a logical extension from an administration who has already admonished them to not fire their weapons, but run, hide and throw things.

Yes, it does make you wonder doesnt it? Some of us have a pretty good idea too, which is why we are preparing for the worst.

I don't know what's more disturbing this article, or the fact it was written by a former Raider WR.

Manet Napolitano needs to order a few billion more rounds of ammo.

Is there any reason that the companies that make ammo aren't making more? I don't think there is a shortage of the ingredients is there? Seems like the supply side of supply/demand is way out of whack. Are their hands tied or what...?

Why double the production to sell bullets at regular price when you can keep production the same at double the charge and keep demand?

I really don't know, but I think that some of the companies will expand and start kicking out more product to take hold of more market share.
