Gaddafi's Gold HiPower

Hey guys and gals... I thought I'd share this article. It's an interesting read and features the Browning that was given to Gaddafi as a gift from one of his sons to celebrate the 32nd anniversary of the revolution.

Let me save you the trouble, the video half way down the page does not appear to show the pistol and is a bit disturbing...

I wonder if this is a limited edition Browning? Thoughts?

At the bottom is a link to another story: that of how FN S2000s ended up in Gaza. I've not read it again but I seem to recall seeing something about it all last year. Something about covert support for the Libyan rebels from overseas governments, IIRR.
