Arrow Muammar Qadaffi's Golden Guns

Kinda interesting, Qadaffi had a collection of golden guns.

That gem encrusted one doesnt look like a makarov, wonder what it is?

Calling the hi power and advanced 1911 and a beretta a hi power makes it look like noobs wrote it.

That caption is actually refering to the gun below it, not above it. The gem encrusted pistol looks like a Beretta 70. Though the "Hi-Power" at the bottom of the article is actually a Beretta 951.

Go figure, it's an article written by a non gun related website.

And not nearly as embarassing as The Sun the other day managing to use a picture of an AR-18 as an AK-47. You'd think journalists would at least have some idea what an AK is.

I'm going to guess there's a Freudian reason here.

I'm not that shocked that he had gold guns, I'm shocked that while fleeing for his life, as his world crumbled around him and his enemies closed in on him, he STILL CHOSE to keep a blingy gold gun as his sidearm. Now that's dedication.
