The Kurdish Gunsmith 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.

    I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
