U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) agents must have the best guns, gear and training to stop illegal immigrants and deadly drug smugglers from crossing the Mexican border and entering our country. Luckily, dedicated CBP operators work out of forward operating bases like Camp Grip near the international boundary line to maintain an edge over cartel scouts. In the upcoming September 2013 issue of Tactical Weapons, author Nick Jacobellis visits Camp Grip and rides along with our best enforcers.
“As soon as we arrived at Camp Grip,” Jacobellis writes, “a group of Border Patrol agents geared up for another tour of duty in a vast and potentially dangerous environment where every mode of transportation, including horses, 4×4 vehicles, bicycles and all-terrain vehicles, has been used by smugglers to transport drug shipments through the desert to pickup points on Interstate 8.” Luckily, Camp Grip is a completely self-sufficient base with living quarters, a kitchen, modern appliances, extremely capable vehicles and high-tech security measures.
To learn more about these brave CBP operators—including their weaponry, expert tracking skills, cutting-edge equipment and some true interdiction stories—check out the September 2013 issue of Tactical Weapons, available on newsstands and digitally July 9, 2013.
