I use federal surplus equipment to upgrade my local fire department. It’s, um, interesting to see who has what equipment in their “trash.” For example, I recently learned the Dept of Energy has SEVEN (7) RIFLE .50 BUSHMASTER BA50 the no longer need. I thought the .50 was an evil tool of Darth somebody and no civilian should have one . . .
Pretty sure the Richland, Washington location is the DOD/Hanford nuclear enrichment facility. But seven (or more) surplus .50s? And you can bet if they are getting rid of these they’re buying new replacements.
Now two have been requested by the FBI. And they are getting them. Why does the FBI need THESE EVIL THINGS?
