  1. Cdn getting man handled....

  2. Patch on that last pic of the vest by itself is upside down, like someone slapped it on there after the fact.

  3. Just for context, it has been alleged that Coahuila State Police are paid by CJNG to exterminate CDN cells.

  4. Worse than Beirut!
    And its right on our backyard.

    1. And your government supplies all those weapons. looks at those AR-15 mags, those are not cheap surplus STANAG magazines. Those are fancy mags .

    2. Our government doesn't supply us with weapons. A free market society and our constitutional freedom to bear arms is how that works. It's not perfect but still the greatest country on earth.
