Wonder what kind of rifles they were, and where they were headed.

ETA: I'm guessing inside job

A quid is slang for a British pound, kinda like us saying "5 bucks". Currently, 1 British pound is worth approximately $1.601878, so 5 quid is $8.00939.

ATF spokesman Richard Coes said the weapons include assault rifles he described as "AK-style." He declined to discuss other aspects of the case.

But wait... how much is that in pence?

WSB said this A.M. that it was believed they were military style rifles, possibly heading for a military base, and that the authorities didn't know where they went missing along the trip.

These were VEPR rifles.

Saw the bolo identifying them as such.

I also saw a BOLO saying it was a combination of .223 and 7.62x39 variations.

100 pence to the pound! Figure it out!

Actually, I knew it was a joke when I replied to it......thought I'd keep it going. Guess not everyone got my joke-on-a-joke. Sorry, I'll be circumspect in the future.

I'm actually in the UK right now, which is why it jumped out at me.
