Ever wonder how they make guns in Pakistan?

I found this very interesting video off of a link on the Survival Blog. The guy who made the video apparently managed to get into Pakistan’s tribal areas. It is titled The Gun Bazaar of Pakistan.

What seems to have impressed the narrator the most was the small machine shops that turned out homemade guns. He keeps describing these people as making guns with their bare hands. This annoys me to no end.

From what I can see, he is obviously visiting small scale machine shops. Yet our narrator seems to think that it is amazing that they can build guns there.

It is just not that hard to build guns.

My primary thought while I was watching this video is that rural American’s would be making guns the same way if the Federal government ever tried to restrict the supply of guns. I have a couple of neighbors who could do it, and there are millions of rural men through American who have the skills to build their own guns if they needed to.

One final gripe; the narrator implies that kids are building guns, but as best as I can tell, the kids in the video are loading ammunition. Something my neighbors do all the time.

Annoying narrator aside, the video is well worth watching.
