The Bushmaster M4 is a 3-foot rifle capable of firing thirty 5.56×45mm NATO rounds, and used by spec ops forces throughout Afghanistan. It's a serious weapon. But in the Internet's darkest black market, it's all yours. Who needs a background check? Nobody. The Armory began as an offshoot of The Silk Road, notable as the Internet's foremost open drug bazaar, where anything from heroin and meth to Vicodin and pot can be picked out and purchased like a criminal Amazon.com. It's virtually impossible to trace, and entirely anonymous. But apparently guns were a little too hot for The Silk Road's admins, who broke the site off from the main narcotics carnival. Now guns, ammo, explosives, and more have their own shadowy home online, far from the piles of Dutch coke and American meth. But the same rules apply: with nothing more than money and a little online savoir faire, you can buy extremely powerful, deadly weaponsGlocks, Berettas, PPKs, AK-47s, Bushmaster rifles, even a grenadein secret, shipped anywhere in the world.

Not necessarily - they use TOR, or ‘onion routing’, and are completely anonymous.

Probably run out of the DOJ’s basement in DC.
I have enough weapons but I really enjoyed the site and the the TOR onion routing also, very interesting stuff. Thanks for the post.
The leftist slant...unwarranted handwringing and all that aside....this marketplace isn’t much of a threat to anyone. I mean it’s not going to exponentially increase illegal gun activity because if they highlighted the fact that they’re charging $2500 for a Glock handgun or $3000 for an M4 rifle there aren’t hardly any gangbangers and inner city groups who can really afford that cost.
In the end the lefty who wrote the article should be more worried about the illegal guntrading and gunrunning done by governments instead of the smaller amounts done by private criminals.
.380 COLT APC ... same round used by the geezer to shoot aspiring armed robber Duwayne Henderson in the butt, twice.

I ordered the 40-watt plasma rifle and Gen 3 phaser. No Amazon points, though.
Time to get a few W 88’s there and deliver to Iran the right way.

Free shipping to Mexico!
Big Sis, or should that be Big Fat Sis, will be shutting this one down soon.

Piffle. I can walk into any local gunstore and order a Bushmaster. Or most of the other firearms mentioned. And for much more reasonable prices. Of course it’s not secret...
What are they charging for an M2 Bradley?
THE ARMORY HUH? Sounds like a felony conviction waiting to happen.
