  1. Excellent 👍 catch. GOPES seems to be doing a better job, at catching kidnappers, weapons. Will the weapons get destroyed and melted down for rebar?

  2. Why are there so many raids,busts and arrests in the north-east yet we don't hear much from the authorities in the north-west?🤔🤔🤔

    1. Because the northeast is Fractured even worse cdn and too many "cdg" cells

  3. Usually they go after one cartel

  4. Sooooo are they going to sell the ammo??? Asking for a friend

    1. Ammo is expensive these days

    2. It is, thank God that work gives me a box or 2 a month but still at Cabelas it's 60 bucks for a box of 100 45acp

    3. Hearst what is going on with the high cost of Ammo. I remember at Turner's before the pandemic the price of 9mm a box of 50 was $9.99 now it's $32.00 .
      The ammo manufacturer companies are getting rich. Perhaps they have some gold in them.
