    As I said I get the surplus news e-mails as well and did not receive this one. I guess I am just worried because I just bought a lot for $20K

    As of Monday March 16th

    As of Monday all the pending auctions on the Government Liquidation Web site that were selling brass were pulled. 2 auctions still on the site. They both require the mutilation of the brass. I have included the text and a link for people to read. In the past these have not required mutilation.

    0001 - Uncategorized at Government Liquidation

    LOT (4, 043LBS) APPROXIMATE OF FIRED BRASS TO INLCUDE: (2, 908LBS) APPROX OF 5. 56; (50LBS) APPROX OF 7. 62 LINKS; (66LBS) APPROX OF 5. 56 LINKS; (368LBS) APPROX OF 7. 62; (651LBS) APPROX OF 9MM. PROPERTY IS STORED IN CARDBOARD BOXES AND ON (9) PALLETS WHICH ARE INCLUDED IN WEIGHT AND SALE. NO PREVIEW FOR THIS SALE. THIS IS A UNMANNED SITE, LOAD OUTS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. BASE SCALES AVAILABLE FOR WEIGHING OF CONVEYANCE. ALL SCRAP UNDER THIS CONTRACT REQUIRES MUTILATION BY THE BUYER PRIOR TO REMOVAL IF ALLOWED BY THE INSTALLATION OR MUTILATION MUST BE WITNESSED AND CERTIFIED BY DOD SURPLUS PERSONNEL AT ANOTHER FACILITY. TITLE TO THE MATERIAL DOES NOT PASS TO THE BUYER UNTIL THE SCRAP HAS BEEN MUTILATED. BUYER AGREES TO ALLOW USG PERSONNEL TO WITNESS DESTRUCTION.

    This is word for word what was on the site as I cut and pasted it. The other lot listed does not state a demil code it just states that mutilation is required.

    The owner of Georgia Arms was on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk this past sunday talking about it. Georgia Arms is the 5th largest ammunition producer in the country. He said that if he loses this contract, his company will be cut in half.

    Does anyone have a sample letter that I can email?

    All of the dealers specializing in once-fired brass that I checked this morning had updates on their websites explaining the new policy. I don't think this should suprise anyone, I expect a new ammo tax to be forthcoming- in the name of helping the economic crisis. Democrats love taxes, and if it pushes their agenda- that's even better! You don't have to ban guns if you can make it to where the average citizen can't find/afford ammunition for them.

    I thought we were supposed to reduce, REUSE, and RECYCLE! Apparently that doesn't apply to brass. Bunch of liberal hypocrites. (spit)

    Well without trying to post to many conflicting stories here is a copy of the Email I got today.


    We just received word the mutilation requirement is only for fired shells exceeding 50mm.
    As your invoice is for notably smaller shells, the sale will proceed as normal, and you will not be required to mutilate them – they can be used for reloading as you’d planned.

    Thanks!

    At this point I don't know. I think they probably misinterpreted their own policies.
