    The message is coming from a loon. And yes, a lot of rounds are used up in "target practice". You may not recognize how important regular training is, but thankfully, the uniformed services and DHS do. If they're going to fire hollow points in the field, they better use hollow points on the range. The ballistics of FMJ and JHP are very different on account of a huge gaping cup in the front bit of JHP rounds. You don't even know how many rounds are JHP, how many are FMJ, how many are rifle rounds, shotgun rounds and slugs. How many are rounds for the USCG anti-ship munitions? How many of these rounds are blanks, or paintball rounds for live fire training? You don't know, do you? But you're so certain that "something" is awry without any shred of evidence to back your baseless suspicion.

    I'm not a conspiracy theorist but all of these particulars don't add up. That I guess is the fertilizer for conspiracies, but it still leaves unanswered questions. Ignoring those questions or what's worse giving half hearted explanations doesn't put any fears to rest.
    Ask DHS then. I gave you answers based on knowledge, research, and real experience. If you want to ignore that, then stop wasting my time.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Well, quickly to respond -- the article did breakdown quantity by calibre.

    Second, you know my background as much as I know yours, keep your assumptions to a minimum.

    and thirdly, I'd advise you to look to yourself for time management issues, I didn't put a gun to your head to respond to me, did I?

    No, so on that, I'll say good day.

    Yes, for the 21.6 million, not the 1.6 billion it's adding on to. There's also a 1.6 million unaccounted for, since they only stated 10 mil in 40, and 10 mil in 9mm.

    Second, you know my background as much as I know yours, keep your assumptions to a minimum.
    Well do share. My background is openly displayed, and experience available to anyone who asks.

    and thirdly, I'd advise you to look to yourself for time management issues, I didn't put a gun to your head to respond to me, did I?
    I answered your question, and you dismissed it because you'd rather listen to a known liar. I'd advise you to actually think about the nonsense you're presenting.

    I'm not sure how to respond to this without knowing how many rounds of ammunition DHS used over the last 5 years. I would hope that there is a lot of practicing going on but I have no idea how much that would account for.

    You provided conjecture and belligerence. I'd advise you to check yourself before you wreck yourself.

    I said good day!

    I think the bulk of it is headed to the USCG...
