that means they are spending the money on something more advanced and needed more than the rifles.

the person leaking this news should be fired... sounds like a sensitive piece of information and now everyone will be aware we are out shopping and can hold us for prices.

Could work the other way too. Everyone knows there is no budget and can offer good deals.
