The majority of the guns seen being use by the police, and by looters are 3 types. <most likely they are what the police are issued, and the looters stole them. 1. mossberg 590 w/ heat shield 2. M14 <lots of m14s> 3. Beretta 92s, nickle plated I just find this combination... kinda odd. Especially the nickle plated berettas. Isnt a M14 a little .. huge for a police weapon? So does the US supply Haiti with surplus firearms? M14, Mossberg, Berettas are all military arms, maybe the plating is refinished ? Attached are picture examples. OK so the meat of the question I have is, if M14s are plentiful down in S. America, and say someone was planning a S. American vacation, what is the feasability of picking up a cheap m14 and having it imported back into the US? I totally have never thought this out before and have NO idea whats involved with all of this. But it made me wonder. South American Surplus M14s.
