Glenn and others...
I dont think its uninteded consequense, except fot the thoughts from the white house... I view it more as, darned if you do, and darned if you dont. I work for a small town that orders ammo every 2 years or so, and that ammo is suppossed to last us the next 2 years, both practice (yeah right, no ammo available to practice) and qualifying...Including pistol, rifle, and shotgun.
I dont see any way, atleast for smaller agencies that is, to not be caught in a rush at times... The budget is so small, and it lacks the ability to plan ahead a few years, "just in case" of an ammo rush that may or may not come up at some point in the near future.
