Police "outgunned"?...not if they are buying their stuff from this site!
Century Arms is a long time importer of surplus firearms from all over the world. They sell to regular gun dealers, but only semi-automatic rifles - one shot for every time the trigger is pulled.

The link is for LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, as it states on top of the page...what they are selling to LEOs is full auto machineguns and actual military surplus weapons... note the M-3 Grease Gun from WWII, Korea and Vietnam US use and the Hotchkiss machinegun from WWII...

Prices are not listed because you must be a police department to buy.


Undergunned? What are they expecting?

1. Hilarious! What PD is going to buy a grease gun "missing minor parts"?
And who on the SWAT team gets to play with the M-50? Not that many infantrymen have actually fired a 50 cal machine gun, but if you find one who has, ask him how awesome it would be in the streets of NYC.

2. I really wonder what they think they would be using that for?
Although to be honest, I'd love to have a grease gun of my own, but they cost a fortune....
30 round mags, semi or full auto, .45 ACP, relatively light and handy...what's not to love?

If the cops have them I want one, too...

PDs have to buy their weapons somewhere.

Not sure I trust the average cop with what they have. let alone serious firepower.

4. We need more Browning .50 Cal on patrol.
I kid. I don't begrudge arming our police with firepower that's at least equal to what street thugs can have access to.

I don't ever want to see another LAPD 1997 shootout again. When the cops need to go to a local gun store to get firearms to take down a couple crims, something is fucked up.

6. Like the FBI shoot out, it was tactics not firepower that really messed up in NoHo
