    Your item related to the National Weather Service requesting ammo needs to be updated. The request was actually made by NMFS (National Marine Fisheries Services), which is also housed under NOAA.

    “Due to a clerical error in the federal business vendor process, a solicitation for ammunition and targets for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement mistakenly identified NOAA’s National Weather Service as the requesting office. The error is being fixed and will soon appear correctly in the electronic federal bidding system. The ammunition is standard issue for many law enforcement agencies and it will be used by 63 NOAA enforcement agents in their twice annual target qualifications and training.”

      A conspiracy theorist would say that one man’s clerical error is another man’s cover up. ;^)

      All kidding aside, thanks for the link and update.
