Tanks, Armoured cars, artillery. In the UK, the 
Firearm's Owners Card for a .22 is about the same 
as it is for a 155mm Long Tom from WWII. The fact 
is though, that the ammo is rare and hard to get 
and you need more than one person to run one.

Tank ammo is easier but still quite hard to get.

Yeah, that was a stolen vehicle. And he screwed 
that tank up pretty good. You'd never see me 
doing that to my ferret.

Organized crime could buy it's own armoured cars 
(think money dellivery). They've yet to do that.
