Darra, Pakistan 1988- Pakistani kids, children of the craftsmen who turned out these "fine" items, displaying some truly frightening products. All over Darra there were craftsmen squatting by the road, taking hand files to pistol frames, stamping receivers out of what appeared to be mild steel or casually firing a weapon into the air as if to display that they really did work. Yes, but for how long? Pak-made AK's anyone? I prefer Russian, thanks.
