Homemade Colombian pistols

A worker holds a variety of destroyed guns on December 12, 2008, in Sogamoso, Boyaca department, Colombia. An assortment of 25.000 weapons, seized to different groups that participated in the Colombian internal conflict, were incinerated.

Interesting two barrel pistols. Maybe shotgun conversions.

    Not sure if the video above is the right one he spoke off. I saw the video a year or two ago.

    The guy in the video have no idea how wars are won. You don't win wars with small arms. You win wars with heavy weapons. It is something that the Taliban doesn't have or the very least not enough.

    What's the old saying: Artillery is kings and scouts are queens.

    No you win wars with logistics. The weapons used are largely irrelevant.

    Those definitely look like .410 doubles like MAC and others used to sell.
