  1. How are these sicarios not getting their naglas tabla'd off after leaving that much valuable equipment? God knows the bosses care more about money than they do the lives of their men.

  2. Guerrero cartels are a joke lol one of my cousins is with la familia Michoacána there and he can’t even hold a gun the right way. These sicarios can be wiped out in months if the government actually wanted.

    1. Well 1:45 don't just stand there picking your nose, help your so called cousin on how to properly load it up.

  3. No wonder they fled the weapons pictured are virtually crap particularly if you are up against MX army

  4. Impossible to track the manufacturers and the vendors that provided these weapons and ammo to these criminals, the US won't do it for you at any price. Maybe, call el Chapolin Colorado?

  5. Great catch, does anyone know which cartel that belongs to? Thanks to the effort of seizing the weapons, that more likely prevented a large amount of homicides. More sweeps of this caliber need to be done.

  6. An AR 15 type rifle with an attachment which launches grenades
    A long gun type M4, caliber .223 mm
    A magazine supplied with 30 useful cartridges
    Mil 729 useful cartridges .223mm caliber
    12 unloaded magazines for 7.62x39 mm

    Junk?! The AR with grenade launcher will still blow shit up the same as a new one.

  7. Fast and Furious veterans still at work, or is it the Chinese supplying their Mexican help to fight US Tariffs?
    How come nobody can identify the procedence of these weapons?

  8. These guys are closing their eyes and hoping they hit something. No sight to aim out of.

  9. A few years ago I was in that part of the world. Watched a 'squad' drive through town, from LaFamMich that looked like right out of "The Green Beret" movie, complete with Vietnam era tiger stripe and berets! And shinny M-16 looking arms.
