They would not want to sell it at a discount price to citizens... no that just wouldn't be right.

From the article:

The effect of inaccurate accounting of ammunition for troops at war was outside the scope of the study. However, there were limited supplies at times of .50-caliber machine gun and 9mm handgun ammunition at the height of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a senior military officer who spoke on condition of anonymity to talk about the issue.



Huh? If you're pulling your side arm in a combat theater, you have found yourself in a bad way. How is it possible they ran low on what should have been secondary ammo? More so, how is it no one at DoD thought to ask, "What the fuck are those guys doing with all the 9mm ammo?"?

Guess it is time for another purchase to create a shortage in the civilian market.

Don't worry, the civilians will pay for it.

Tom Coburn should introduce a bill where their budget is cut by 1.2 billion to counter the waste. This is horseshit.

Nope. Well, they might take the .50 cal, but they've been using ordinance much heavier than 9mm for years now... :(

The report is four months old and has been discussed here previously. Most of the destruction will be various missiles with solid fuel propellant that is beyond expiration date, not small arms ammunition.

This is not the first time the Spentagon and government agencies have wasted huge values of ammunition by destroy the stockpiles.

We've covered it multiple times over the years... it should be another pressure point to use against hawks and big spenders that take from the poor, homeless, and babies, only to feed the Military and Security Industrial Complexes of vast fraud and waste.
