Does your car have a 300-hp Cummins diesel, a modified V blast-resistant hull, six gunports and a turret? It could, for an unspecified amount of money. It could also offer full ballistic protection, but if we told you how much we’d have to kill you. The Lenco Bear’s GVW was also classified, but it was so heavy that it could only be parked on the bottom level of the convention center. We’ll let you draw your own conclusions from that. (Note: this post contains the word root ‘gun’ and does in fact qualify as The Truth About Guns.)

  1. It’s telling when your brand new armored vehicle needs an oil drip mat under it.

    Also, very heavy, what appear to be off the rack BFG M/T tires, and no obvious add-air-while-driving system? One or two rounds in the tires, and you’ve got a 300 hp paperweight.
