Someone knows something...

I'm seeing a lot of Requests for Quote for tactical equipment, gun cleaning systems, handheld radios, etc, for a lot of very different agencies. Why does the Department of State need tactical equipment (ballistic vests, helmets, tactical bags) ?

Someone is expecting trouble, worldwide...

I used to know a guy who was Diplomatic Security for State. He was an amazing shooter. I saw him at the NRA Range all the time. Some of those guys are real gun nuts.

Looks to me like they're building a shoot house for training. Those guys still train at the track at Summit Pt., WV. Many times during DE's, we heard gunfire and thought it was cars backfiring. They'd always come over to watch the sessions during their breaks, but we weren't allowed to go watch theirs.

Easy. The transition plan for Afghanistan is for the Army to leave and then Dept of State is on the hook.

No, these are out for short bid and delivery is required to be in less than 60 days.

Not buying in quantity. Probably just beefing up their guard's response capability after the Navy Yard shootings. Sucks to be outgunned.

Then just go back about three-four years and see what happened then that would make officials think that government buildings/installations need more firepower....or perhaps just replacement of outdated equipment.
