I'm not alarmed or concerned at all. It's been this way since before I was born. They waste all the money they can, otherwise they don't get to ask for more. Just the way the system works. It's annoying that SS will find every way they can to cut my benefits back to next to nothing, and then have their security people practice with high dollar ammo that I can't afford. 174,000 rounds isn't much, if you gave it to me free, I'd burn through that in a few months.

All of the conspiracy theory sites and the particularly anti-gov't sites are making a huge deal out of nothing. I've posted several times in response to the DHS contract. I have little problem saying that these same types of purchases have gone on for years, in these quantities, but no one was looking because it was a Republican in the White House, or they were and it didn't get spread as far and wide on the Internet. People need to remember that these agencies train with their carry ammo, unlike us poor civilians who have to train with FMJ because we can't afford to just shoot JHP. Of course, with the quantity involved, they're probably paying for JHP about what we'd pay for FMJ.

It also drives me nuts how these conspiracy theorists harp on how the evil hollow points are designed to do "maximum damage to the human body upon entry". :rolleyes: Apparently, they don't have a problem with us having JHPs, just the gov't.

Yeah no problem, they have security at all the field, hearing and HQ offices. Funny, they switched from a Wheel gun in .357 to a Glock 23 if memory serves me. There have been death threats and attacks on SSA employees and the last one was a bad shoot out at the Las Vegas Hearing office and the guy shot one of the guards and the other guard shot the guy. It is crazy.
