Most of the time when you think of Arms Dealers, you think of ex-spooks or shady characters selling guns and ammo to thrid world countries and hiding from prosecution. Well here is a great story of two guys in their early 20s that made millions doing weapon and ammunition deals with the federal government to supply middle eastern countries during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. 100% legal, and backed by the US government. They made millions! Until....

It is a long article, but worth reading if you have some time.

For those that don't have the time, here is the short version...

Two guys start a small company and register with FedBizOps (Federal Market Place for contracts)
Use computer and cell phone to make international contacts for arms trade
Bid on numerous large deals and undercut large companies prices to win lucrative contracts
President Bush mandates that small businesses get mandatory parts of contract awards so that large companies don't take them all. Gives small businesses a chance to compete for Fed dollars.
Greed gets the best of them and they try to sell Chinese ammo for the contracts which is illegal since Chinese weapons are banned by US Government for import to trade.
Guys get caught and sentenced to jail and banned from owing or selling weapons ever again..

Had they not gotten greedy, they would still be living on the high hog for sure.

Its an older story but very interesting what a few highly motivated individuals can do.

Karma is a bitch....

At least 1/2 of this pair is part of Botach, a company has screwed more people than the whores at the Bunny Ranch in Nevada.

Wow, I didnt' realize one of them is part of Botach. Makes sense. Those bastards fraudulently charged my credit card a few years ago and I had to get another card. I will never use them again after what they did to Derek and my credit card.
