Afghan gun stores selling American military weapons

| October 7, 2021

Gun stores in Afghanistan have included U.S. military weapons in their stores. Just as this website’s readers suspected, U.S. military weapons provided to the Afghan security forces, abandoned by the later, ended up in Taliban hands. However, the supply exceeded their demand and the Taliban is not on a major war footing. They apparently did not need all that was left behind.

From Breitbart:

On Monday, Defense Department spokesman Maj. Rob Lodewick said, “Since 2005, the U.S. military has provided the Afghan national defense and security forces with many thousands of small arms.”

He noted that it is without a doubt that “large numbers of these weapons are probably now in Taliban hands.”

Breitbart News pointed to the UK Independent’s August 20, 2021, report showing, “The US spent about $83 billion over the last two decades on training and equipping the Afghan military. The sum included more than 75,000 vehicles, nearly 600,000 weapons and more than 200 aircraft.”

The paper also pointed out that President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan admitted that the administration did not have a “complete picture” on how much arms and equipment were left behind during the U.S. withdrawal, however, he noted, “a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the Taliban.”

Can they ship to my FFL dealer? Do they take PayPal? I might like to place an order.

Only if you use PP Friends & Family, and list it as farm implements on the description. Yes they’ll ship but it will be expensive!



I’m practically ghey for AC and DS Hy.
Practically, maybe.
His *worst* shit is still giggle worthy and his prime shit is piss-your-pants funny.
Don’t believe me, well the ONLY people that apparently (allegedly) don’t like his shtick is the Buffalo Police….so that poses the question, is it a legit indicator of his success and following… he’s pissing off *someone* 😀 😀


It’s not so much his social media activity as all the complaints associated with it. For example; Some will interpret the above video as racist and no doubt complain. Department leaders don’t like getting daily complaints on officers.


Wonder how their international sales are going.

Yep. Just wondering? Do the Tali ship internationally? What’s the going rate for an M16 (cost+S&H, etc)? Even with international shipping, might be worth it, seeing as the Tali have such a large profit margin on those M16s. (pResident Slo Xiden essentially gave the Talis those weapons)


Everyone is filing 4473s, right?

Do they have any F15’s and Nukes available for sale? Do they deliver like Domino’s? Asking for a friend….


What? Just post some “Gun-Free Zone” notices and that will take care of everything. Right?

JUST have the Taliban pass Chicago-style Gun Laws and watch the hoodlums line up to turn their guns in just like there or NY!


Is no one going to tell us the asking price of a full auto M 4 carbine?
And how much is 5.56 ammo going for in Kabul?


Wouldn’t mind getting a deal on a gently used, low milage MRAP myself.
