The passenger was looking a little nervous. I don't blame him.

Any idea how it ended up? Did the bad guys give up the chase? If the other guy was hired to ride shotgun he needs to find another line of work

Those guys acted like it was everyday business as usual! Sadly it looks like the United States is going in that direction.

Wonder how that ended?

I thought they both kept their cool better than most would.
Sure would be nice to be in a vehicle that was bullet proof

What? C'mon. If he was in on it, he would have disabled the camera and put a bullet in the driver's head when he was stopped, trying to turn around. The passenger was obviously not as prepared as the driver.

They need to have a larger clip in the AR, for sure.

the driver was an ex special forces guy from over there, the passenger was new and only working at the company for a week or so....from what I've read from the BBC

that second angle is awesome, I like how he played that and went for a side swipe on those fools standing in the road waiting for another shot

I am going to guess, he won't have any problem getting the best jobs. Working security detail for the rich looks good on a resume, but most of those body guards, probably don't see much action, while working as body guards. This guy has a video circulating world wide, that proves, he's good at his job, and ain't afraid of she-ite.

Another update with impact walk around & Has the armored vehicle sales guy who really trusts his product as they shoot it up some more!! If you have never seen one up close, they are something else. The doors feels as heavy as well made large gun safe door & vision out the front is a little distorted due to thickness.

Execution of persons involved in these heists would have a huge deterrent I would bet


Not surprised about AKs and Galil availability but did not think ARs would be plentiful in SA
