It pays for grassroots to make noise. That combined with the efforts of the NRA-ILA have reversed the DoD decision to suspend the sale of once fired brass.
On March 17th, 2009, DoD confirmed the lifting of the suspension to pro-Second Amendment United States Senators Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.), who sent the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) a joint letter vigorously opposing the suspension, on the grounds that it had “an impact on small businesses who sell reloaded ammunition utilizing these fired casings, and upon individual gun owners who purchase spent military brass at considerable cost savings for their personal use.”
In short, good news, problem solved. Never hesitate to speak, it made a difference here.
