Do you have AR-15s?

Cool. Yeah, very good.

Could I show you

an MMP, perhaps?

No, that's fine.

Do you-

We do not sell them.

Let me see if I can help you here.

Are you looking for something

for target shooting,

self-defense, hunting?

Hunting, yeah.

- Hunting? Okay.

- Yeah.

I might recommend this one.

This is an AR-15 as well.

Already camouflaged,

longer barrel for accuracy,

already set up

to have a scope put on it.

I think you'll find that

very suitable for hunting.

Yeah, this is...


I just need to

talk to my cousin.

- Okay.

-'Cause we're going together.

So trying to figure it out.

There you go. I'll be back.


Okay. Thank you very much.

What happened?

He was asking

all kinds of questions.

What did you tell him?

I just asked for the shit

that was on the list.

But, I mean, he knew

what all of that shit was for.

No, he don't know.

You have no record.

Well, he knew.

I can't do this shit.

You can... try again.

You'll get it, bro. You'll see.

Two seventy, twenty-two.

Can I get two packs

of Marlboro Lights?

Yeah. Can I see your ID?


You be cool.

Next time...

It'll be harder.

Shit's heavy.

Don't open them.

Don't open them.

Come on...

Right here you need to fill in--

you forgot one

of those boxes there.

- If you could fill that in.

- I'm sorry.

- Not.

- That's all right.

All right, let's see here.

That looks good. All right.

I just need to

have you sign here

and put today's date, please.


Very good.

I'll take care of the rest.

Now, do you have

any questions about this firearm?

- No, no.

- whatsoever? Okay.

Very good.

Do you need ammunition,

targets, anything like that?

- No, I'm good.

- No? You're good? All right.

Well, very good. Well, I

want to thank you very much

for your business, okay?

And appreciate it.

You got a great gun here.

All right.

Be safe with that, all right?

- All right, will do.

- Bye-bye.

Eighty-five sixty

will be your change today.

Great, thank you.

Would you like

the receipt in the bag?

Yeah, that's okay.

Anything else I can

do for you today?

Yeah, can I see a couple

of those lighters over there?

Which one are you interested in?

Like the--

what does that

top right one say?

-"Rebel by choice"?

- Rebel by choice?

- Is that it, really?

- Yeah.

Yeah. All right, I'm good.

Hands up, fucker!

Don't f*ck around, man.

Come on, get in.

Get in!

All right.

You like to f*ck around, don't you?

Hey, I got you something, too.

You're such a dumb ass.

Come on.

You can't ever fucking

start this thing.


There it is. Easy, no?

Easy? You didn't do shit.

Let's see.

Look what you've done, pendejo.

Suck my dick, pendejo!

Let up, man!

What's that, what's that?

What, now?

Let me go, asshole...

We need three ARs and we cross.

Yeah, we can get them

in Sierra Vista.

I'm gonna need more cash, though.

Here's a beer.

Come on, this is warm, you bastard!


It surely tastes like piss...

Don't drink it,

you little prick.

Fucking asshole.

- Asshole your mom. Bring it.
