You may call me mad, but did the MRF use glock pistols and AK47s? Because that’s what is used as the backdrop on the front page of the Phoblacht.

Mere details Bob.
But I wonder. Has SF done the research on whether having guns on the front cover increases sales?

Bob Smiles - December 3, 2013

Guns used to be the mainstay of the Phoblacht’s front page. The Glock is a Love/hate type of gun. It wasn’t invented when the MRF were stalking Belfast , in the BBC programme they all had Stens and Sterlings not AKs. Plus it looks like a staged photo- I hope that’s not stuff that escaped the decommissioning !
