So Dept of Homeland Stupidity ... er ... Security, just awarded a contract to a Minnesota firm for:
450 MILLION ROUNDS OF .40 AMMO
Now that's an awful lot of ammo for an agency that WON'T be landing on the shores of Iwo Jima anytime soon!
Thanks to Joel for the head's up.
This reminds me of when the FBI was purchasing 20 mm canons. And makes about as much sense!
