The Transportation Security Administration issued a solicitation on Friday for training ammunition. This solicitation is a Request for Proposal for the following:
3,454,000 rounds of .347 SIG Caliber Training Ammunition including shipping (See specifications attached.)
It seems that the TSA in addition to not catching any terrorists can’t catch typos either.
They do clarify in the next paragraph that they are seeking 115-130 grain .357 SIG training ammunition.
Given that the Federal Air Marshal program is under the auspices of the TSA, I presume this ammo is for them. I certainly hope the TSA doesn’t have any intention of arming the gropers at airport gates with anything more than nitrile gloves.
