10 minutes ago   =  you won't believe this. Empty 10 minutes ago = you won't believe this.

Post by Talosian Thu Feb 28, 2013 4:41 pm

I go out my driveway at Chapala Haciendas and on the street, just sitting there is the most massive-ass pickup you ever saw; painted in camouflage (or however it's spelled), with six young solders in and around it. And on the back, it a very current either 50 Cal. M.G. or for all i know, a 20mm cannon. I'm not talking the HMGs you see in WWII movies, I mean like Star War.

Our Fracc Mgr. sys they have been there an hour or so. Very casual looking guys.

I asked if there was any problem, and was tol "No." I then offered to buy the MG. No sale.

Came back from the store and asked if I coul take a picture and I got the wiggling "No" finger.

That's it.

I saw police trucks from El Salto driving around this afternoon, no idea if there is any connection or why they would be out here.

When one of 6-7 guys in military uniforms, sidearms, rifles and a MG as tall as I am says no pictures, discretion dictates - no pictures.

And the MG was nothing like what Intercasa posted; seriously, more like Star Wars stuff.

It's gone now.

Yeah, we were dropping a friend off and I saw it too. I don't know anything about weapons, but that gun was waaaay meaner looking than the gun in Intercasa's photo.

Well -- the Mexican army is not known for its Star Wars program, so I'm going to suspect it had something to do with the War on Drugs.

Just my $0.02 centavos.

10 minutes ago   =  you won't believe this. Empty Boys will be boys, and we love out toys

Post by Talosian Thu Feb 28, 2013 7:15 pm

The thing that worried me today is: What if they were on a stakeout for some drug thing and there were a few of these babies around?

I use to have an fire a Boys 55 Cal anti-tank rifle; that puppy would go through three people, wooden frame house, a car hood and stop after it had shattered a V8 engine from two blocks away -- I kid you not.

I would not want to be "collateral damage" to a firefight.

Aside from collecting guns (no, not a member of the NRA), I loved to collect all sorts of "different" vehicles. Note one that I restored and drove in pares.

Couldn't bring any of my toys down here (sadly).

I'm the one behind the camera. The lady in the car with our Pupster is m now ex-wife.

The lady in uniform with the fruit salad, my Dentist and girlfriend --- too much information. But were talking a decade or more ago.

Why is youth wasted on the young?

That is an automatic 40mm grenade launcher. Used to be that only single shot "bloopers" were available.

You are a brave guy to allow your girlfriend, wife and a gun all get together like that. Personally, I tried to keep mine all separated by large distances.

Really, Merry? Dawg traveled about Spain for some time from Barcelona to Madrid to Jerez to Saville in the 1960s when Franco´s regime was still in control. I would like to hear how life these days anywhere reminds you of Spain under that fascist dictator after that dreadful civil war preceding that time.

I first saw the truck and soldiers tucked into the curve as you approach Haciendas Entrada 1. About 30 minutes later I saw them at Entrada 2 talking to someone in a beige SUV. Was that you?

We saw this vehicle driving down the careterra around 6pm. Definately intimidating. Looked like a military special ops team.

Sisters? Not in any way. The only thing they had in common was Moi.

Not worth discussing now; fodder for memories.
