“You can take your shots in those chintzy Mariachi glasses your friends brought you back from their Mexico vacation. Or, you can bust out the heavy artillery and have some drinks in the above Muzzleshots.” So snarks ohgizmo.com. What they don’t realize is that your friends, knowing you’re a gun guy, did buy these for you down Mexico way. Only they stopped for one last Margarita (no salt) on the way to the aeropuerto and made the mistake of trying to carry them — in their custom Pelican case, of course — onto the plane . . .
When the English-challenged Mexican equivalent of our blue-gloved TSA officers asked, “¿Qué diablos es eso?,” your buds blithely blurted, “shot glasses!” That’s when the bolts retracted on the Federales’ MP5s and your amigos missed their flight out of Acapulco.
As an added bonus, they got to experience some of the fun that is the legal system — such as it is — south of the border. Until, that is, they managed to straighten the whole thing out almost two days later. And they picked up those chintzy Mariachi glasses they ultimately gave you in the airport gift shop (all bags checked this time) as they vowed to each other never to venture even close to the border again. Ever.
Bet you feel guilty now, huh?
