  1. Once in a while the CDG has to give up some of their men inorder to give the military some results to show their bosses in el DF that they are doing their job against organized crime. As long as the general's receive their cuotas,- business as usual wherever CDG controls. The demise of CDG has been greatly exaggerated.

    You can get a .50 caliber BMG bolt action used for about USD $3,000 in the USA, USD $10,000 for a semiautomatic, from a private dealer.
