Illegal gunmaking in the Philippines
The Tapei Times covers the industry. Pistols, subguns -- these guys will make them, from scrap metal. The illegal gunmakers reportedly number in the thousands. And lower-ranking government officials are among their customers!
(Some enterprising fellow is going to get to these guys and tell them they can make a fortune in replicas. Why make some pocket change for a pistol when you can put away five hundred for a flintlock, or a thousand for a wheel-lock?)
