gun show

Seen at a gun show:

Banned in California because they hold weapons with deadly shoulder things that go up, .50 caliber rifles that can shoot down airplanes, and other weapons with high capacity assault clips.

This must be the “gun show loophole” we used to hear so much about.

Mexican soldiers have seized an arsenal of gold-plated and diamond-encrusted weapons believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel and, it seems, fans of hip-hip excess.

Showing just how flamboyant gang members spend much of their ill-gotten wealth, pictures show how most of the 31 ‘pimped’ pistols found in a raid on a home in western Mexico had gold or silver-plated grips or were glittered with diamonds.

Three of the assault rifles are almost entirely gold-plated and there was even a silencer plated with gold. One particularly image-conscious gangster has made his pistol unique by adding rows of gaudy red and green jewels and a Ferrari logo.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’d open carry that black 1911 with the diamond punisher grips with pride.

I’m honestly shocked that someone in the main stream media was able to write an article on Mexican drug cartel’s guns and not even mention the ubiquitous “gun show loophole”

The rifles aren’t really my style, although I still think they would be an awesome addition to any collection. Pretty neat how even the suppressor has engraving all over it.

Where does one even get such badass work done?  I imagine it would takes days worth of time, and be very expensive.  My guess is that these cartels have jewelers and gunsmiths on the payroll.

Seems like for a while there, every night on the news there were pictures of tables full of confiscated guns from Mexican drug gangs.  Most of the guns ( predictably often said to have been obtained from the US through the gun show “loophole”  or through crooked gun stores ) appeared to be in their factory form.

Every so often though you see guns like these:
