Impro Guns - Drug dealer SMG

A fairly new Brazilian creation following the trend of standardizing around Glock magazines.

The Other McCain - Blue Whales Are Decadent and Depraved

What kind of twisted West Virginia hillbilly freak show is this? “Mating with other species” and — AND! — “their hybrid offspring”?
