    In the words of the Boone County Sheriff “Boy you’re in a heap of trouble”. Had it have been me I would have found somewhere to make a u-turn legally or otherwise no way would I take even one round of ammo to Mexico.

    There are numerous sign prior to international entry points,you are entering MEXICO,no guns or ammunition allowed.I don't give a crap,I am not driving into Mexico with a load of ammo,If I can't turn around,I'm parking the truck where it is and it's not moving anywhere until Cops show up and clear traffic so I can back the hell up.

    I'm with Ret. Could be one of Eric's boys.

    Or just someone who turned off their common sense just to see what would happen.

    The trucking company's name is Demco. Fast and Furious weapons are useless without ammo...

    "The owner of United Nations Ammo in Phoenix, who identified himself only as "Howie," said...the media was calling it cartel ammo, but we paid for that ammo, it's really our property." Only if it was FOB Shipping point.

    Perhaps, but are any of those signs in Arabic? Such a mistake wouldn't be made in, say, Dearborn, Michigan.

    The name of the company buying the ammo makes me suspicious. What ammo company uses "United Nations" in their name?

    Man, talk about a bad day lol. Of all things to accidentally take in to Mexico, ammo would be at the worst end of the list.

    I don't trust my GPS. It's one of those skills a man should know by adulthood, how to read a map. I've taken plenty of wrong turns in my lifetime, but not with a $110K worth of ammo into Old Mexico......!?!

    If it were me I'd made a "Fast and Furious" (pun intended) uturn.... or at the very least put 'er in reverse and crawfished outta there one way or another!
