    I see the "caravans" heading to Mexico with small truck stuck in box trucks towing another one behind. Most of the time there are three in a row going about 50 mph.

    The truck had no license plate, inviting a stop.

    In California box trucks and semi's are only required to have a front plate with current tags

    I don't run front plates, though they are required by Utah law. It's simply not a priority for Law Enforcement here.

    So if the bad guys see a Crown Vic with no front tag they know it's 5-0 immediately.

    In Miami all (most) of the unmarked police cars had plates that were obvious, I can't remember exactly now but it was a definite tell, didn't make a lot of sense. I don't imagine no front plate is a give away it just reminded me of the Miami cops.

    Full Metal Jacket...Depending on which .45 is on my hip from day to day, I've got between 22 and 25 of those little jewels on my belt at all times...50 more in the truck in 5 magazines if I run out......Ben

    I was always partial to a pump action 12 gauge loaded with slugs
