Why is the Internal Revenue Service buying shotguns?

Here's the call for quotes that the IRS has put out. The agency says that the shotguns are for its "Criminal Investigation Division".

I could understand (kinda) investigating crime, insomuch as I do acknowledge that the IRS is still a legal entity despite my beliefs on taxation. But there's a far difference between investigating a possible criminal and approaching said possible criminal in a way that entails possessing means of self-defense if necessary.

Or I guess it could mean that the IRS is going to attempt to make war on moonshiners. But after what happened to Popcorn Sutton last year, y'all can be assured of where my sympathies in that would be.
