Think about it...

Dear Valued Customer: Please take a moment to note important changes set forth by the Defense Logistics Agency: Recently it has been determined that fired munitions of all calibers, shapes and sizes have been designated to be Demil code B. As a result and in conjunction with DLA's current Demil code B policy, this notice will serve as official notification which requires Scrap Venture (SV) to implement mutilation as a condition of sale for all sales of fired munitions effective immediately. This notice also requires SV to immediately cease delivery of any fired munitions that have been recently sold or on active term contracts, unless the material has been mutilated prior to sale or SV personnel can attest to the mutilation after delivery. A certificate of destruction is required in either case. Thank you, DOD Surplus 15051 N Kierland Blvd # 300 Scottsdale, AZ 85254 -------------------------- No more government- used cartridge cases will be recycled into live ammo, which WILL directly affect all law enforcement personell, all gun owners, and especially ALL TAXPAYERS" "From now on, remanufacturers of military brass will not be able to buy surplus brass from DOD--actually from Government Liquidators, llc.--the corporation that sells surplus materials for the U.S. government. At least, not in any form recognizable as once-fired brass ammunition. Now all brass ammunition will have to be shredded, and sold as scrap." "...this move is a stupendous waste of taxpayer money--reducing the worth of the brass some 80%--from casings, to shredded bulk brass." Brass is already scarce and law enforcement is having trouble getting supplies needed for training. Here is one less source of income for the federal government plus higher state & local taxes to cover the added cost for our local LEO's. Read the article -- it lists some actions YOU can take to change this. Contacting our Senators: John Tester Max Baucus (Me) (Blacktail Books)
