    Ever read "The Battle of Jakes"? They may need said firepower one of these days--the flip side to that is--it may be used against them.

    It's for their research facility. Maybe they are planning on upgrading the Presidential limos and need to know if they will protect well enough.

    That's the job of the Secret Service, not the FBI.

    When will these be available at the local gun store?
