    :earI know the closer you get to the border the nearer you are to the bad stuff. Glad you got away man! A crappy end to an otherwise great trip down in Mexico it seems.

    If you were close enough to recognize the weapon then you better thank Someone that you are still here!

    Maybe you dropped something and they were trying to give it back to you? Dave

    Curious why you mentioned soft bags?

    Do people feel soft luggage is an easier target?

    We all know what the GSA means. After all it's "bring my wallet". :lol3

    In all seriousness its too bad it happened, but at least it was only a chase and not gun shots, etc. I'm sure the adrenaline was pumping!

    Adrenaline knows no punctuation.

    Good story, simply because you made it back without leaving anyone behind. Maybe you should visit the "Is Mexico Safe?" thread.
