    That's correct this is the time of year they start to resupply the training divisions for HLS. That's pretty normal for them.

    Remember FLETC (all 4 of them) are part of Homeland Security. There are up to 3,000 students at any given time there. If they fire 500 rounds in a day at the range, that 1.5 million rounds if they just went to the range once. They go many times in training.

    If they were stockpiling ammo, it'd have to be twice that to create any type of inventory.

    Ammo purchased by DHS probably doesn't stay on hand longer than a year.
