El Chapo had fast and furious 50-caliber

 

snip-

A .50-caliber rifle found at Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman’s hideout in Mexico was funneled through the gun-smuggling investigation known as Fast and Furious, sources confirmed Tuesday to Fox News.

A .50-caliber is a massive rifle that can stop a car or, as it was intended, take down a helicopter.

After the raid on Jan. 8 in the city of Los Mochis that killed five of his men and wounded one Mexican marine, officials found a number of weapons inside the house where Guzman was staying, including the rifle, officials said.

When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives checked serial numbers of the eight weapons found in his possession, they found one of the two .50-caliber weapons traced back to the ATF program, sources said.

The lame stream media will get around to reporting it if they can figure out a way to blame it on some film maker. Otherwise they will continue to ignore.

This is from June, 2011 linking the downing of a Mexican Military helicopter to a 50 cal.: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/gunwalker-guns-linked-to-helicopter-shooting/

 

This is the only semi-reliable information I found. The rest are all questionable and even this one relies on un-named "sources."
