Incendiary Image of the Day: New York Post Cache as Catch Can Edition

Drugs and gun "cache" (courtesy nypost.com)

Cops find cache of guns and heroin in storage locker nypost.com proclaims. “They were prepping for a different kind of storage war,” the lead asserts, making a pun while unintentionally drawing attention to the pathetic nature of the gun “cache.” “Police discovered a trove of guns, heroin, and cash while executing a search warrant in a Brooklyn storage locker and a nearby car Monday night, authorities said. Cops raided the unit at Lockaway Self Storage in Fort Greene at 6:30 p.m. after three men wanted for recklessly driving ATVs on a public sidewalk were spotted parking inside, according to police. Officers found fourteen ATVs and dirt bikes inside the unit along with four loaded handguns, officials said.” I hope they were more careful unloading the guns than the Post’s editors were about unloading their usual anti-gun hysteria on unsuspecting readers.

    Pretty sad cache these morons are wetting themselves about.

    1. avatar B says:

      This is what happens to a disarmed populace, a city utterly terrified by less firepower than most of us carry daily. What public good is served by disarming citizens when a gang armed with outdated junk is a threat?

      1. avatar Joe R. says:

        That’s just the stuff that made it to the evidence locker.

    2. avatar Jim R says:

      I dunno man. There’s a lot of cash in that pic.

      1. avatar Patrulje says:

        Sadly, not among drug dealers.

  2. avatar Tim says:

    At least they didn’t call it an arsenal.

    1. avatar Matt in Idaho says:

      Right,

    2. avatar MiniMe says:

      Not yet. 😉

    3. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      Cache, arsenal … pfffft, I have had more firearms and ammunition in my car on vacation trips.

      1. avatar B says:

        If you carry any of the ubiquitous polymer 9’s with a standard cap mag you have more firepower than this sad arsenal. This is all it takes to operate with impunity as a drug dealer in a slave state.

      2. avatar SpeleoFool says:

        I’ve taken more than that on a plane. 😉

    4. avatar MontieR says:

      They did last week.

  3. avatar General Zod says:

    Is it just me, or are two of those handguns shown with empty shell casings? “Loaded” indeed.

    1. avatar TJM says:

      .38 Wadcutters maybe?

  4. avatar Delmarva Chip says:

    I know not what constitutes a trove, or cache, or arsenal of guns. I would guess that the numbers get smaller over time though.

  5. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    Hi Point in the news 2 days in a row and then Sig’s announcement about a slow down in sales. . . . can this be a trend? Is the market moving downstream to functionality rather than fashion?

  6. avatar Jason says:

    Yay more Hi-Points!

  7. avatar Bob says:

    This H dealer has shitty taste in guns.

  8. avatar Dickie J says:

    If that’s a “trove” then what I have in my closet must be a “metric COMMENT MODERATED-ton.” Good to know.

  9. avatar Daniel S. says:

    Nobody needs 2 rounds!

  10. avatar Peter says:

    I see they have three of the five most dangerous guns in America.

    1. avatar Rob Aught says:

      Heh, topical!

    2. avatar SpeleoFool says:

      Derringer, Will Robinson!

  11. avatar Martin says:

    Is that a Hi-point what was it used for to prop open the door ?

    1. avatar Model 31 says:

      Bear hunting

      1. avatar Another Robert says:

        LOL! Beat me to it.

  12. avatar Bigred2989 says:

    3 old or crap handguns and a derringer, yet I can’t own an AR15 in most blue states because they are used in a lot of crime (except they aren’t).

  13. avatar Rick Testa says:

    I guess 4 guns & less than 25 rounds of ammo constitutes a “trove”…not exactly what I would want for any kind of “war”.

  14. avatar Rob Aught says:

    Ironic that only the Hi-Point violates the SAFE act. Of course, an unregistered handgun in NY you might as well bend over now.

    If I understood the article, the police found these weapons in a storage locker and not on the individuals. You can’t assume any malicious intent if they were not on their person. I know gun laws are pretty strict in NY, but just because they had guns nearby does not mean they were up to no good with them.

    In fact, these sound like garden variety idiots. The heroin is a bigger indicator of future criminal activity than the guns. The guns were probably intended for defense of their heroin!

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Of course, an unregistered handgun in NY you might as well bend over now.

      Not necessarily. Don’t forget, if the gun is stolen, or if you are a convicted felon, you are not required to testify against yourself, ie register the gun, according to the SC.

      The guns were probably intended for defense of their heroin!

      Or all those Benjamins!

    2. avatar Anon in CT says:

      These are the same jagoffs who bomb around the city on ATVs – essentially Wilding on Wheels. I love ATVs, but not on a Manhattan sidewalk. Their ATVs are more likely to kill an innocent person than those crap guns.

  15. avatar Gunr says:

    You can have the guns, Hi Point and all, I’ll take the Benjamin’s

  16. avatar v v ind says:

    More like a trove of ATV’s
    And a cache of cash

  17. avatar Dirt Dog says:

    Note to self: If I ever go into the heroin business and keep a stash of heroin, guns and money in a storage locker, don’t draw attention to myself by “recklessly driving ATVs on a public sidewalk” and don’t park my attention-grabbing ATVs in the same locker as my contraband.

    1. avatar Stinkeye says:

      Yeah, these guys sound like some real criminal masterminds, don’t they? I like how the article says they were “wanted” for driving the ATVs on the sidewalk. Makes it sound like there was a huge manhunt for them, and that they’d been pursuing these ATV-riding supervillains for months…

  18. avatar Menger40 says:

    All those Benjamins and they couldn’t even spring for a Glock?

    1. avatar Stinkeye says:

      The shady dude on the corner where they bought them was out of stock on stolen Glocks that day.

  19. avatar Pulatso says:

    So 21 rounds total? I carry more than that to the grocery store. Not exactly a “trove”.

  20. avatar Don1974 says:

    I’m just glad nobody got hurt as one of those guns is a derringer. Word on the street is those things are dangerous.

  21. avatar JhonnieB says:

    Well…at least there’s now one less Hi-Point POS on the streets.

    1. avatar OODAloop says:

      Hey man, don’t you know that Hi-Points are the new bear gun of choice? They should get extra-special punishment for even potentially carrying such a lethal cannon.

  22. avatar Colt Magnum says:

    Cache… arsenal. How many does it take to be a butt-load?

  23. That ‘arsenal’ has 3 out of 5 of the most dangerous guns in America! There is a pistol, a revolver, AND a derringer! OMG!

    Looks like all .22s also. I wonder if the ammo was worth more than the heroin.

    1. avatar Stinkeye says:

      I don’t think any of those are .22 caliber.

      1. I should have looked more carefully.

        At least I didn’t say three-hundred eighty caliber (heard that on the news earlier in the week).

        😀

        1. avatar DJ9 says:

          Now THAT’S funny!

          I would need oxygen to recover if I heard that on the local news…

  24. avatar Clark45 says:

    HAAAAAAAhahahahahahaaaaa! I have a “trove” of guns in my smallest gun safe! What would they call my entire collection? Or my friend’s collection of 160+ handguns? Who is a doctor, by the way, not a Duck Dynasty-looking, revolutionary-wannabe that the MSM paints us all to be. (Just for the record, I find nothing wrong with how the DD guys look.) And I have actually CC’d an entire “trove” on occasion! (Not recently, but legally & back “in the day”) Oh, I need to put on dry skivvies, I think I laughed so hard something leaked…

    1. avatar Gunr says:

      What kind of a Doctor is your friend?
      160+ handguns! I hate to think what he charges for an office visit! If I had a $1200 Kimber, do you suppose he’d take that in payment?

      1. avatar Clark45 says:

        He might, he is a huge Kimber fan. I am probably wrong about how many he actually has at the moment. The last time I saw him he said his wife was making him cull the herd – no more duplicates, which I think he said would put him under 100. Although, that particular day he had just picked up a Kimber .22, 1911 style that he said “nearly” completed his Kimber collection. And he collects only “metal” handguns, says he doesn’t trust “plastic” ones; wouldn’t shoot my Glock that day. That’s okay, to each his own.

  25. avatar IdahoPete says:

    “Cache? That’s not a cache! THIS is a cache!” [Opens safe.]

  26. avatar Roll says:

    What is this weak-@ss excuse for a “Cache”? Only thing in that “cache” I’d take is the money, everything else is paperweight and door stops..

  27. avatar former water walker says:

    Hi-Point, Hi-Point,Hi-Point…the do everything gun. I’d buy a 9 or above for $100. And drug dealers without EVIL black rifles?

  28. avatar Ralph says:

    Wow. I walk down the street with a trove! Who knew. Unfortunately, it’s not a trove of cash; I would call it more like a cache of cash.

  29. avatar Ebenezer Bowman says:

    OMG YES! A High-Point! The bad guy owner should have a duel with man from Alaska that killed a bear with a .45 High-Point. And when they run out of ammo they can go “hands-on” with their newly created truncheons!
    All kidding aside. That is one pathetic cache. The idea the NYP is acting like this is some Gaza level Hamas stronghold of weapons really cooks my craw. Eventually I hope people get tired of the sensationalism from the media and there is a concerted reforging of what news is an how it’s delivered in America.

  30. avatar James says:

    That much cash on hand, and those are the guns they got?

    1. avatar B says:

      In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king. A HP was all it took to keep their disarmed victims in check.

  31. avatar Atypical Philadelphian says:

    Is that a S&W model 10 snub nose? I see six rounds lined up next to it so I’m assuming it’s not a 36. The only gun there I’d actually want to own myself, even if it is a little rough looking.

    This article made me smile because, no matter how round-about a process it was, these guys were nabbed initially because they were riding ATVs in the city like jerkoffs. Living in Philadelphia, and also having what little peace and tranquility there is available get blown away by someone riding an unmuffled Raptor (in shorts, no shirt, no shoes, no helmet) the wrong way down the street repeatedly at 11pm on a work night…well, I’ll take any tiny victory, anywhere, anytime, that gives these guys any grief at all.

    If the cops can’t be bothered (unless a cache of cash, trove of heroin, and arsenal of guns is involved) to deal with city-ATV riding idiots then at least make it so I don’t get in trouble for doing something about it myself. Like THAT would ever happen…

    1. avatar DJ9 says:

      The contours of the grip frame tell me it’s a J-frame S&W, but the 6 rounds and cylinder flute pattern indicates it’s a six-shot revolver. The only J-frame centerfire 6-shot revolvers made by S&W are .32 caliber, so I think it’s probably an older nickel-plated S&W Model 30.

  32. avatar Roscoe says:

    Must have been a slow news day.

    At least no guard dogs were shot at wounding a bystander or fellow officer.

  33. avatar S.CROCK says:

    Why would someone with all that money and H guard their “valuables” with the cheapest guns that they could find? For an extra $200 (which they obviously have) they could have gotten a way better gun than a Hi-Point.

  34. avatar MontieR says:

    Now it is a cache, last week it was “AN ARSENAL”. I was expecting at least ONE scary assault rifle or thousands of rounds. Two pieces of scrap one marginal antique and ONE decent pistol and 21 rounds of ammo. This fantasy land these sorry individuals cowering in fear live in is truly insane.

  35. avatar David in NC says:

    21 rounds. Now that’s high capacity!

  36. avatar Jay1987 says:

    Wow 21 rounds among 4 weapons?? my kids have more than that in their Nerf collection and I have more ammo lost in my pockets.

  37. avatar BaconFart says:

    That’s the biggest cache of weapons that I have ever seen. We now know what happened to Sadam’s weapons of mass destruction.

  38. avatar Andy E says:

    A friend of mine, his dad has the beginning of Alzheimer’s. He was telling me that over the last year he has pulled 300+ guns from his dad’s safe. Which is more like a bedroom sized safe. Lol. That IS the definition of a cache. (he is still pulling more) his dad isn’t safe to have his guns anymore

  39. avatar crzapy says:

    Webster’s dictionary defines a cache as: a group of things that have been hidden in a secret place because they are illegal or have been stolen. SO I am actually going to give the press a pass on this one as they seem to have hit the nail on the head.
    Webster’s defines a trove as a valuable collection : treasure. Here again I will give them a pass since the cash and heroin push the stash into trove territory.
    However, the guns are a pathetic group of cheap heaters that are probably stolen. This was not the arsenal they were looking for. Sounds like gang bangers just gang banging as normal.

  40. avatar Anonymoose says:

    8,000 cash? Whatta buncha losers!

    Love the “recklessly driving ATVs on the sidewalk” bit tho, that’s pure class.

    Sounds like these guys thought they were banging waaaay harder than they actually were.
