What does NYPD do with it's range brass?

It sells it to online ammo sellers in Georgia.

1. I am rather surprised that the city

did not already have an arrangement with the company that supplies the rounds in the first place.

Makes good sense to sell to the highest bidder.

3. I say, so what, the NYPD probably gets more money that way than to sell

it for scrap. It's not like if it wasn't for NYPD brass there wouldn't be any ammo available.

5. Georgia Arms makes very decent ammo, too. I've gone through thousands of rounds of their

"canned heat" in 5.56, 9mm, and .357. Reusing once fired brass provides for a 10% discount over new ammo.

Thanks for supporting Georgia shooters, Bloomberg.

7. WTF? -- They're reloads!

Should someone scrap their car instead of reselling it?

6. Heck, I thought criminals were scooping it up to put the blame of shootings on police.

At least, that's one of the irrational arguments gun culture uses to oppose micro-stamping and other attempts to track guns used in crime.

16. What does microstamping have to do with anything?

if Microstamping was used, the stamp would go on the primer. The primer is removed and replaced with a brand new primer when ammo is reloaded.

17. Hoyt's post #6 is about microstamping.

Scooping up microstamped brass fired elsewhere and leaving at the scene of a shooting is about polluting the results of microstamped guns used by the Bad Guys.

12. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

 

Agent Provocateur? Nothing new to see here. Complete ignorance of modern technology and the complete failure of NY's ballistic fingerprinting database. Not one single murder solved with it.

I swear some of these people are hired by the NRA to make the antis look like total loons.
