OP's just dumb- 40mm ordinance usually consists of grenades, not actual RPGs.
#25 to #14 - anon (07/30/2014) [-]
I looked it up cause OP's post seemed silly. Her two bodyguards within the vehicle were killed, while Minerva survived but only because she got medical treatment. She only lived because a grenade thrown into the vehicle apparently didn't go off. She owes her life not to the vehicle, but because of sheer coincidence.
User avatar #132 to #25 - penileburglar (07/30/2014) [-]
She owes her life to both.

Pretty sure the other 300+ bullets would still have been an issue if her vehicle wasn't armored.

there was no one in the car, they just faked it out to make her gain sympathy., wiyc\ch would explain how there are no signs of an rpg or a .50 anywhere the car

Modern armor has come a long way. A half inch of ar500 steel can stop AP 50cal rounds. I would upload the video showing it, but i don't know how to post them in comment.

Nope, that's a myth.

The sheet they use in that video is 1/4 inch.

Demolition Ranch has a video where he stacks 4, 1/4 inch plates together and it only punches through one.

I dunno. I'd probably put my first shot into the engine (so they can't keep driving). I would probably stop firing after the car got hit by an RPG.

Indeed. I don't think the folks that spent 350+ rounds of ammunition and explosives were concerned about overkill.

Yeah, well, I've read enough of the state Mexico is in, a bullet-ridden car is status quo. And AK's and other assault rifles are plentiful, I thought something like Barret would be less so.

But again, the drug lords have money, anything's possible.

Cartels basically run a lot of Mexico, they're so rich and heavily armoured it's unreal. They have more control than the government does, if a cartel wants a town they can take it with ease and no one will stand up to them out of fear.

the barret is the easiest weapon to buy on that whole list.

any RPG (super illegal everywhere)
Barret .50 BMG (you can buy one for the low low price of $10K)
User avatar #22 to #9 - localbees (07/30/2014) [-]
For the first two at least, anything is legal as long as you are willing to pay enough and deal with enough forms.
RPG's on the other hand, that's a slightly different story.
User avatar #17 to #9 - iphony (07/30/2014) [-]
Fully automatic firearms are not illegal in the U.S.A, you just need permits to buy them.
User avatar #64 to #17 - lyiat (07/30/2014) [-]
All fully automatic firearms manufactured after 1986 are illegal regardless of how many permits you have. So unless you want to rely on nearly thirty year old guns that are very likely to break down after a few seconds of sustained fire...
#122 to #64 - chubbies (07/30/2014) [-]
Anything well maintained will shoot the same now as it will 30 years ago. You can buy new reinforced receivers for nearly anything anyways.

You clearly have not dug out an AK-47 out of Iraq yet.
User avatar #249 to #172 - lyiat (07/30/2014) [-]
Do you bother reading sources before posting them?

"Sales to private citizens were limited to previously "registered" and "transferable" units. These are machine guns manufactured and registered prior to May 19, 1986. This immediately increased the value of a registered, transferable AR-15 machinegun, for instance, as only a limited amount of transferable AR-15s were in existence prior to May 19, 1986."
User avatar #263 to #249 - xchewsifferx (07/30/2014) [-]
yes but all that says is that their are limited parts. you could still acquire the proper paper work and then buy the weapon made prior to the ban.

Or you can do what most people do and just buy the required pre ban parts to make a modern rifle fully automatic. A pre-ban trigger, disconnector, auto-sear and pin (absent in the AR15), hammer, selector and bolt carrier are about all you need to convert a modern AR15 into a fully automatic configuration.

You just need the permit saying you're authorized to own the parts, and the money to buy the parts. Then you can convert nearly any modern rifle into a fully automatic platform

User avatar #268 to #263 - lyiat (07/30/2014) [-]
And how does ANY of this dispute the fact that "All fully automatic firearms manufactured after 1986 are illegal". Because it doesn't. Buying old parts for a new gun doesn't make a 'newly manufactured gun', as in legal terminology, the gun's age is determined by it's oldest parts.
User avatar #273 to #268 - xchewsifferx (07/30/2014) [-]
I do however see what you're saying. You cannot buy a fully automatic rifle that was built in that configuration after 1986. But i don't think it's fair to say you can't have a Fully automatic rifle unless it was made before 86, because thats not true, only a few parts have to be pre 1986. You're saying now that the law states the oldest part determines the age of the gun... thats fine, but don't think that, because one part of an object is older that the rest of the object that the entire object will function as if it's that age.

Also that law just sounds strange to me. I'm not saying it's wrong, and i'm to lazy to look it up, but if i have a gun that was manufactured in 2010 and then i put a spring in it from 1980, now the gun is deemed 30 years old? That just seems like a poor way to judge somethings age.

As to your statement, I never said it was incorrect. I'm simply saying i wouldn't always base my judgement off of it when considering the functionality of a firearm.
User avatar #271 to #268 - xchewsifferx (07/30/2014) [-]
I never said you could buy a "newly manufactured gun" that was fully automatic. I said you could buy pre-ban parts, and put them in a new gun. Just because the parts are older does not mean they were used. They could have been sitting in someones closet the whole time. And regardless of age, look at the parts that need changing: trigger, disconnector, auto-sear and pin, hammer, selector and bolt carrier. The only thing in that list that really sees any abuse is the BC, so even if you did buy everything used the only thing you have to worry about breaking is the BC. heck on any AR style platform (or its variants) the only thing you ever see wear out is the barrel, the gas system, or the BCG.

Which brings us to this statement,

"the gun's age is determined by it's oldest parts".

Personally, I don't personally agree with that statement. if you had a brand new gun, and then put a ten year old trigger in it, That trigger is going to out live half of the other parts on the gun.

Thats like saying if a car, fresh off the assembly line had one bolt in it that was 30 years old, than that car is thirty years old. Because you can bet that you're going to replace the tires before you replace the bolt
User avatar #272 to #271 - lyiat (07/30/2014) [-]
Your opinion doesn't change the legality of the firearm or the court's view on the firearm. My statement is not incorrect.

What's great too is how the ATF says that it was just a failed attempt to track them. But apparently they put nothing in the guns to track them.

mexico didnt ban gun ownership its just more regulated. and in any case all they have to do is cross the border to get some more guns, which isnt even necessary thing to operation fast and furious. In case it wasn't as big in the news in the US as it was here in Mexico, the ATF allowed over 2500 weapons, mostly assault weapons be trafficked into Mexico in an attempt to track how the weapons were entering, only to soon loose their trail, all of which was done without informing any Mexican authorities, not even the government or president
User avatar #240 to #30 - clannadqs ONLINE (07/30/2014) [-]
That might have been the most irrelevant thing I've ever seen today. Japan's restrictions are MUCH worse than Mexico's and they have some of the lowest crime rate in the entire first world. There is almost no correlation between gun ownership and crime, when will people learn? The Cartel has been well established for a while now and I don't feel like looking it up now, but I am willing to put money down that the Cartel was around before those laws regarding weapon ownership were implemented. Comparing the Cartel to a petty thug in Detroit almost automatically makes me deem you an idiot.
User avatar #66 to #30 - Fjcf (07/30/2014) [-]
Because that's the only/main reason of the violence in Mexico. Also, gun ownership isn't banned in Mexico, it just isn't as easy to get them as in the US.

first of all, I'm 99% certain 40mm RPGs dont exist, so it was likely a grenade, probably a standard HEDP . also, .50 caliber is an anti-material round, not an anti tank round. the standard .50BMG only penetrates about 3/8 of an inch of steel.
User avatar #58 to #56 - lyiat (07/30/2014) [-]
Mate, if you had bothered to take two seconds to look it up on Google, you'd realize that the RPG-7V1 can use 40mm anti-personal fragmentation rounds.

Standard .50BMG will get around 19mm at 500m using the M2HB (that's 7.something inches). 40mm RPGs do exist and they are specifcally for RPG-2s and 7s it's their calibre (although the actual warheads will have different sizes, but there are also 40mm anti-personal rounds as the user lyat said (not to confuse with the polish grenade launcher RPG-40 which uses the "standard 40x46mm that infantry grenade launchers use). If it was HEDP it would have penetrated trough, I don't believe that thing has more than 50mm RHA value... 40x46mm (presumably what the attackers used) HEDP would have gone through that no problem... so a simple HE would be more likely.

Guess the attackers will get their revenge on their suppliers for not providing them with the good stuff.
