Guatemala to buy guns from IWI, Glock & Beretta

    The Guatemala National Police have decided to purchase $3,792,907 worth of guns from IWI, Glock & Beretta. They will be buying submachine guns from IWI and 9mm pistols from the other two companies.

    Apparently the Police purchase came significantly under budget, but the press are blasting them for not enough transparency (you show me a weapon deal, and I will show you a weapon deal that the mainstream press have criticized).

    Thanks to the readers who sent this in.
