Thanks JAP! Makes me wonder too. I saw some photos of a raid in Mexico close to the border showing massive amounts military type armament enough to supply a small army. You may have stumbled across that in your surfing also.

Thanks Konane
I have not seen info on the subject of armament. The only thing I heard of are ak47s as weapon of choice and who do we know that prefers that weapon.
