The Obamanoids just blinked! Here's two links provided me by Admiral Ahab, who claims credit for the NRA on this one. I rather think that since it was Gary Marbut of the Montana Shooting Sports Association who was on this like a duck on a june bug last week and also as it was his two senators who sent this letter to DLA,
that I'm going to give Gary the lion's share of the credit on this one.
If the Lairds of Fairfax did stir their stumps to actually do something on this, it will be the first time since Obama won the election. I guess we can give 'em credit for that. Of course all you Threepers and JPFOers who were pouring it on since last week didn't hurt either. Here is the JPFO announcement:

Exposing the GovCrims pays off
Great news! It appears the destruction of military once fired brass has ended with a reversal of DoD policy.
Who says complaining does not pay off? (Refer back to last alert).
Please read the latest from the MSSA.........
Dear MSSA Friends,
I just received a phone call from the office of U.S. Senator Tester of Montana to inform me that at 5:15 (EST) today a letter cosigned by Senator Tester (D-MT) and Senator Baucus (D-MT) was faxed to the Department of Defense asking DoD to reverse its new policy requiring destruction of fired military cartridge brass. At 5:30, I am told, Tester's office received a fax back from DoD saying that the brass destruction policy IS reversed.
Others report to me that they are already seeing evidence of this on the Websites of entities that liquidate surplus DoD commodities.
Our thanks go out to Senator Tester and Senator Baucus, and their staff, for getting on this problem promptly and making the reversal happen.
Staff for Tester and Baucus promise they will get me the documentation for this reversal tomorrow morning. I'll forward that when I get it.
Gary Marbut, president

My thanks to the dweeze for first giving me a heads up on this, and thanks to Admiral Ahab for the NRA-ILA document links.
