Shoot to Thrill

No trip to Culiacán is complete without a tour through the army's cache of confiscated weapons. This takes up the better part of a large warehouse in the zona militar. A lot of it looks like captured booty from Pancho Villa's day.

But that's because the keep the good stuff locked up in a caged area off to the side.

We have big fancy guns in the US, of course (where do you think most of these came from?) But it's the smaller, more personal pieces that are the most interesting. Chances are, if the person across from you pulls out a gold-embossed pistol, you're going to die in the next few minutes.

And if they pull out a piece engraved with iconic quotations from "Scarface," you're definitely about to die. And probably have the video posted on YouTube.

Finally it's Burro Hall Xmas Gift Suggestion time! For the assassin who has everything, why not a solid-gold silencer? Order now, while supplies last.

"Silencer is golden."

A solid gold silencer? What, is silence not golden?
