National Weather Service Follows DHS in HUGE Ammo Purchase

National Weather Service Follows DHS in HUGE Ammo Purchase

Hollow point bullets designed to cause maximum organ damage

Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.

A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.

A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The solicitation also asks for 500 paper targets to be delivered to the same locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

The weather is very important

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Office of Law Enforfcement

They have NOAA cops. They have target practice.

Target practice ....

with highly expensive rounds? Who does target practice with hollow point rounds?

Cloud seeding


lol, I was about to make that joke

A new experimental project. Would also help/justify buying up bullets to make it harder and more expensive to get ammo. With this government I wouldnt put ANYTHING past them. Could be an idea out of their Creative Corruption Team...

Have no clue

why on earth they would need ammo.

46,000 rounds and paper cutout targets?

I'd guess they were sending their security for some firearms training. Now, why they need security at all, much less armed security is another question entirely. Maybe the NWS realizes that the police are unlikely to show up in time......
