The IRS needs Shotguns?

The IRS, you know, that Federal Bureaucracy that employs thousands of accountants, lawyers, and nosy busybodies, is accepting bids from sellers of Shotguns. Seriously.

The statement is that the shotguns are needed for their Criminal Investigations Division. You need a shotgun to go over someones financial records? Are you joking? Please tell me you are joking.

Quotes are solicited under Request For Quotation (RFQ) number TIRWR-10-Q-00023.
This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; a written RFQ will not be
issued. If your company can provide the product listed in the RFQ and comply
with all of the RFQ instructions, please respond to this notice.

This requirement is a Small Business Set-Aside and only

The RFQ opens on the date this announcement is posted and closes Wednesday,
February 10, 2010, 2:00:00 PM Pacific Standard Time. Response should be emailed
or mailed by the closing date to or IRS, 1301 Clay Street,

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty
Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division

I guess they aren't joking. Apparently, it's only that I wish they were. Are you seriously telling me that the IRS actually needs shotguns to crawl over the financial records of a citizen? Am I the only one who finds this incredible?
