Default Drug Lord House Raided WOW!

I know this is from 2008 but its amazing what drug money can buy. Gun people will find it amazing. Cat people will find it amazing. Hell, anybody will find it amazing.

The sad thing is that this is why we have a lot of the problems we have today with drugs and the border. I posted this in Dockside because this one doesn't have to become political.

I doubt this very much!

The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the U.S.A. for 12 years!

Dayum! That pile of cash was amazing! The guy got busted because he was greedy. Shit he could have quit years before the bust and vanished and lived a lavish lifestyle and been left alone.

Cash still rots in American warehouses because it is harder and harder to find laundry services...

After they counted it 22 million in cash, after I recounted it, we are back to 18 million. Must have been an error!!!!

I didn't realize they found $72B in the house. Even with all $100 bills it must have been a house the size of 10 football fields.

I'm skeptical, especially the picture of the 1911 that says .357 magnum!

Never said it was. I just posted some cool pics. Not my problem that some have to get anal about it.

I stand corrected! Isn't that a picture of a .41 magnum? I'm sure there exists a picture of a .357 mag semi out there somewhere. Apparently Dan Coonan made a custom 1911 style in both calibers, although it's tough getting rimmed cartridges to fit in a semi.

I can honestly say that despite all of teh calibers I have seen, reloaded, wildcatted, or at least heard about, I had never seen a 357 mag semi - the power of a .357 mag in a rimless cartridge was the whole reason for the .357 sig.

I guess if you can own a handgun that shoots 600 nitro express, why not have a 191 that shoots 357 mag?

I didn't catch the .41 on the gun. The caption says .357 but it may very well be a .41. Here are some .357's for sale on Gunsamerica.

Yeah, big time, I could see that happing. That stash of cash is just his getaway money....wonder how much he's got stashed away in how many banks around the world? And since that is his getaway money one would need lots of guns to protect all that money.

Of course! Where else is he going to keep the money he makes? Is he going to walk into a bank every week with a palate of cash to deposit?

And these drug lords buy lots of stuff because they have nothing else to spend their money on. Hundreds of thousands on gold plated guns never to be fired? Whats the point? Whats the point of having all this cash and not buying stuff?

And in addition to the cash he had in the house I'm sure he has some in offshore accounts so when he gets out of the clink he has money to get back on his feet, or live very well until he dies of old age.

Pablo Escobar's stash probably made this guys house look like a ghetto project property.
