I suspect the escort did not meet with a happy ending. The article specifically states nothing was said about them.

Lost gps tracking? Makes me wonder how they did that…

    Ammo is more lucrative than drugs nowadays, sell that shit for a buck a round.

    The sooner we start annihilating cartels on the bordee towns on the mexico side

    Bomb every mexican city within 30 miles of the border to a flat potholed wasteland.and use the buffer zone as a shooting range for US troops.
    Fuck that. I want to shoot too

    Watch it be 6M rounds of this and they end up dumping it on the side of the road:
    Lived in an old dump of a house during flight school and used those for mouse hunting. They would pop up through a hole on top of the stove and we would fold em up as they showed their heads. We could hit em from the sofa in the living room and they would fold up like a 50 cal hit em. Great fun…

    Probably walked away well paid. I'm sure the .22 will make it to the U.S. eventually, with a marked up price. The cartels Mexican neckbeards are no dummies.

    I know a group of guys that could get that shipment back. They arent easy to find.... but for the right price they will come up with a wacky scheme that will return the ammo and put the cartels in jail probably forever. It is gonna be pretty dangerous because mr t is getting pretty old and its dangerous to knock him out these days cause the drugs mess with his other meds. Howling mad is pretty blind... and hannibal who died exclaiming i planned this, i planned it all somehow.

    Something like this:
    Yeah that's one way. Another is to know where the tracker box is, cut out and or faraday cage .

    It's not like the cartels are just some dumb farmers. Hell, we trained a shitload of them either in our military or down in Mexico with our " consultants".

    They probably used the trucks gps signal to track it themselves. Shit, the drivers probably turned the trucks over willingly without anyone firing a shot.

    Lets hope they've learned how to shoot since they were last seen.

    Probably Aguila. Not a huge loss…
    Especially as of late!!!!!!!!!! Though the latest batch of Winchester sucked even worse and I didn't know it would be possible to have > 20% failures (by the way, it is). Nope, not gun, as it wouldn't fire off reliably in a buddy's 22 either.

    Jam the GPS input signals (3-4). Most GPS tags report back via the cell system. Jam the cell sites local to the site of the hit. Or, cut fiber, etc.


    GPS is commonly hacked. Remember the McCain?



    The Cartels have their engineers too and, they likely are well educated and well paid.
