No....seriously, WTF is the DoE buying Combat Grade 12 guage SHOTGUNS for?

This just ain't the America I'm used to......

Check it yourself right .... HERE

*Oh, by the way....that is a Dammgood weapon....same as my home security gun, don't want to pull out a pistol that shoots through walls if you don't have to....and I've found that just racking that first shell puts the Fear of G-d into most bad folks*

Really though.....any ideas?
G-Lady, Nciswit,BTB, Leonidas?

Here at ΛΑΨΕΔΑΕΜΟΝ the home protection 12ga has a round already chambered. Why would you want to warn them?

^^Good Point my Friend.....^^ But unlike stately ΛΑΨΕΔΑΕΜΟΝ, the Lair abounds with those pesky Cubs, and their goofy friends.

Wollf doesn't trust safetys and doesn't like locks.......

"Clack" for me, heh.

I saw this exact same posting about the IRS the other day, with the same wording. I'm pretty sure that this is an IRS request that somebody on the web changed to be from the D of E. Just my .02

Of course, that simply begs the question WTF does the IRS need shotguns for, but that's another story

You silly! They bought these because there weren't any 155mm howitzers in stock at the store.
