Forget the group hug, next time stash a gun in your RV to defend against these thugs. They are just like the pirates of the high seas and most boaters carry multiple weapons.
I was thinkin that too. I suppose the mexican border guards do a run through of your vehicle for weapons and drugs? It would be fairly easy to stash a gun in an RV opposed to a car.
Shoot, shovel, shut-up?
I would be very carful about trying to sneak something in or out of Mexico. I knew someone who hid a bottle of liquor in their trailer. It was found. A weapons charge could be quite stiff in Mexico. Enter at your own risk, but don’t think a trip to prison down there is going to be a great option.
Yeah...this “group hug” seems like a bunch of new age hippie crap. I wonder if this “group hug” made the sexually assaulted lady feel any better?
The surfer community seems to adopt a lot of this new age nonsense. Maybe they have spent to much time in the saltwater and their brains have turned soggy.
Still...NOBODY deserves to have this happen.
Here’s a better idea. Don’t go to Mexico. It has always worked for me.
“Forget the group hug, next time stash a gun in your RV to defend against these thugs.”
Sorry, but that is bad thing to do in Mexico! They will toss your can in in jail, with little hope of getting out, for as little as finding a tiny 22 round or a shotgun shell under your car seat.
Old Pro, you get an automatic 5 year sentence for possessing a gun in Mexico. NEVER carry one across the border, many people that have accidentally driven to an entry port that have been searched and found with weapons get an automatic 5 year sentence - neither your attorney nor the U.S. State department can get you out, it is a nightmare beyond your wildest dreams. You certainly have the right concept, but everyone should be aware of the mexican laws, you can lose your life there easily either in prison or from being unable to defend yourself.
There was an article in Surfer magazine a couple of months ago - some California surfer dudes were robbed, shot, and left for dead by corrupt Federales south of San Diego. I myself am never going to Mexico again until they clean up the corrution there.
Nothing wrong with that, but from a practical POV these were multiple assailants with automatic rifles.
You'd have to be fast, and good to win even with a long gun, and there's a better than even chance everybody would wind up KIA.
Not a routine holdup.
I wonder what would have happened if he had had to kill one or both of the attackers and then had to deal with the Mexican police and Mexican court system.
Thats a really bad idea. The federal thugs down there set up roadblocks and search vehicles for weapons.
After being stopped at one of these checkpoints back in 95, I saw the writing was on the wall. Ive never gone back.
Thats what Id suggest - just stay out of Mehico all together. If they want gringo tourist dollars, let them clean up their socialist criminal cesspool.
