Must say we were a tad sceptical a week ago when the story came out about the 800 Winchester Defenders found in the back of a truck en route from Turkey to Belgium. We were especially sceptical about the authorities' downplaying the possibility that these guns were destined to find themselves in the hands of terrorists; no, not these guns... these are hunting guns! Suuuure!
Well, lo and behold, that wasn't the first time a shipment of shotguns left Turkey with dodgy paperwork and a dubious destination. Seems just a couple of months prior, Greek authorities uncrated a whopping 5,000 Winchester shotguns stashed aboard a tramp freighter on its way to Misrata, Libya.
Not to mention a half-million rounds of ammo!
Seems those Islamist radicals are getting into skeet shooting and pheasant hunting in a big way!
