This is coolbert:
From a comment to the blog by an astute and informed reader:
"I don't know if you read comments but crossbow is not used by marcos any longer. The photo you put up is about 20 years old I believe. Now they are equipped with silenced pistols."
Thank you anonymous. YES, I read and moderate all comments. I just wish that there were MORE!
Your point is well taken.
1. Even from twenty years ago, the average-everyday-man-in-the-street would still be amazed and perhaps even puzzled that a modern military force would find an application for the crossbow?
2. Do you have info as to what sort of silenced pistol MARCOS now employs? Indigenous Indian design or of foreign manufacture?
