Just wondered if anyone here has seen this....seems to have US plates ? It is not graphic by todays standards , but there are a few people around the truck that have been shot so only view if that is not going to affect you.

Hopefully nobody from Titantalk.....

This happened in Mexico. It was a drug related shooting. Prayers go out to the victims families.

the text says AK47... but well, we all know the media never knows what they are talking about... like claiming "automatic" rifles were used, when in fact they were semi automatic... trying to scare the public to pass another ban by lying to the public...

as for the bullet holes-- could be any medium size caliber, like 9mm, 7.62 (from the AK47), etc.

7.62x39 ( AK47 round ) makes decent sized hole in sheet metal...there was an old car door at a remote range above Sacramento that we go to...our holes looked about the same as those in the video.

I was just trying to get a fix on the license plate of the vehicle...it looks to be from here in the states...not mexico ( Even though the actual shooting occured in mexico )

depends on the angle they hit too.

Maybe it was buck shot...
Even the 00 buck size for a standard 12 guage is only .33 caliber with a much lower velocity per individual pellet then the AK round.....now slugs would be a different story...BIG hole there...

YEP, Shotgun or .50 cal

License Plate looks like New Jersey and formatting appears like it too. DUMB ARSES!

Drug dealing is a dangerous profession. Sometimes you eat bear, sometimes the bear eats you. The bear won this time. The amazing thing is there is always somebody waiting to take their place.

I travel to various parts of Mexico 1-2X per year and it's surprising how many Titans I see. Of course pretty much any vehicle down there turns to crap in short order because of the roads..... And of course the bullets as pictured....

Plates are from Estado de Mexico....

Titans are the highest priced 1/2 ton Pick-ups in Mexico.. Not considering the Avalanche(for 45) or Caddy EXT (for 62k)..

You get an off-road LE for 44 k..

and an off-road SE for 40K...

Almost no XE's make it to the market in Mexico.

I do not feel sorry for the druggies ( if they are) however, I feel bad for the Titan. What a waste of a great truck. Why could'nt it happen to a Chevy or Ford even a Tundra?

titans are hi class over in mexico but the f-150, armadas, and silverados are still the choice for car thieves. but wont be long before the titan make its appearance as the drug dealers choice. at least here its rare to see a titan being driven around in mexico. dont want the attention when crossing the bridge over to the states fully loaded if you know what i mean.

1. No way in hell that was an AK-47. Holes are too large, and the spread isn't right. You're average idiot with an automatic rifle is going to have a serious rise to his spread. These are horitzontal.

2. I'm guessing a large caliber handgun, .45 or maybe a .50 cal.
