A former San Diego County sheriff's captain pleaded guilty Tuesday to running a longstanding illegal arms trafficking operation, in which he bought and resold guns available only to law enforcement for both financial and professional gain.

Marco Garmo, 52, the former captain of the sheriff's Rancho San Diego station, illegally purchased and resold "off roster'' firearms, which may be purchased by members of law enforcement, but not the general public, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

1. Not a Gun Nut

but,three years ago tagged along with my Bro who is and also a collector Dealer. Went to three shows in his area,these pieces seemed to be readily available to whom ever had the Cash. Parking Lot only as I learned. So much for back ground checks. Like the Bro said,I would not touch those with a ten foot pole. Collectors like him do get visit from the ATF unannounced if their is a Special piece being moved.
