Ghost Gun: Illegal Handgun Making in the Philippines Should Freak You out

Illegal handgun making in the Philippines is a thriving black market underground so buyer beware.

Illegal handgun making in the Philippines may well have you think twice about where and how you purchase your next gun.

Five rounds to check if the counterfeit 1911 is working and safe; that should scare any gun owner about where his or her next gun is being made.

You here a lot about “budget guns” and how, in many cases, their quality can match a more expensive firearm. That may well be true if the cheaper gun comes from a reputable off-shore manufacturer; but do you really know where that firearm is from? Is it possibly a knock-off like the ones featured in this video? You just can’t be sure unless you do your homework.

There is one sure-fire way to ensure you get a quality gun and know where it is coming from. Buy an American made firearm from a reputable dealer like Cabela’s. You know you will be getting a well-made and safe gun that has warranties and guarantees from the gunmaker. Not too mention you will also be supporting good American jobs and craftsmanship.
