The Sunday bust in Michoacan state still made a news splash for the sheer size of the arsenal.

Mexican marines broke open a ship container and uncovered a whopping total of 900 firearms.

The guns included nine millimeter pistols and shot guns. Neither type of firearm is commonly used by drug cartels hitmen, who usually carry out drive by shootings with Kalashnikovs and AR15s.

The container had been delivered from a ship with a Turkish flag that was headed to Nicaragua and made a programmed stop at the Michoacan port, Lazaro Cardenas…

…However, Sunday’s raid could indicate a new way of bringing large numbers of weapons into Mexico.
