Medium.com has a very interesting blog post about a Kurdish gunsmith …
Even though the war effort has brought new and varied business to his gun shop, Bakhtiar says his craft is one that will never go away. “My business will not stop, even if the war with ISIS ends,” he says. “I repair weapons for the police, the Asayesh, the Peshmerga, everyone, not just for the Peshmerga on the front lines.”
“Weapons always get broken,” he says with a sanguine smile. “That’s why I have to repair them.”
Thanks to Jay for the tip.
