    CBP to buy four million rounds of 12 Gauge shotgun ammunition

    Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends to procure two million rounds per year of 12 Gauge slug shotgun “standard” ammunition for use by its agents and other DHS components, plus another two million rounds per year of the “reduced recoil” version of the same ammunition.


    “This ammunition will be provided to all Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers and agents and will be used throughout the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and other US Territories and possessions,” explains a presolicitation notice issued by CBP on September 18.

    Early each morning, just down the road from the Casa Grande gun club, is the range that the Border Patrol uses each day. Go listen to our tax dollars at work. WOW. I was not aware that there were that many bullits to practice with.....m

    They have plenty of time to practice. Obama won't let them enforce laws against illegal aliens.

    If the gun has a laser or a Red Dot sight--why all the practice with a shotgun?

    Muscle memory in trap, not with shooting a slug gun. A slug gun is a short range large caliber rifle.IMHO
