El Halcon De La Sierra En Vivo


I got my monthly list of new CD releases and came across this selection in the Latin category. It looks like he is holding an AR. Are they even legal in any Latin countries? My Spanish is not so good.

I spent a month in Mexico two years ago and had no trouble staying 'current' with my shooting skills. For a nominal fee (say, ten or so bills US on the desk of the head LEO) I was provided with a permit (he called it a writ of exemption), directions to where I could go shoot with out being harassed, and the names of several people who would 'rent' me some toys to play with as well as some ammo. For another $750 I managed a machine pistol and 200 rounds. I had my choice of a selection of weapons, some of which I've never seen in person. One guy even claimed to have a G11 but no ammo (I'd guess casless 4.7mm is kinda hard to find in mexico...<sarcasm>). Given the Latino male's sence of bravado and braggadocio, I'd take his claim with a little skepticism.

Was it all legal? Most likely not. Was I alone when I went shooting? Does anyone remember the IRA training camp in the Libyan desert in "Patriot Games" ? (thats a no) Did I see any AR's down there? Yeah, but most were M-16s.

Just remember, we here in the US are particularly 'prudish' when it comes to obeying laws, especially in comparison to our South American brethern.
