You guys are looking WAY too much into this. What probably happened is that someone bribed one or more of the staff to hold the ammo for them. The person who works when they get shipments in sets the ammo aside and gives the person a call.
That was how I got 9mm and 45 Auto HP ammo during the shortage. Someone else was paying them to hold the 380 Auto ammo for them. Not sure if anyone was paying them to hold the 40 S&W.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.
