    Just read the article. Too bad most of the rifles shown as examples of "those used by the gunmen" were European and not Norincos like they actually used.

    What are you talking about? Only ONE pic is of a Romanian AIMS (stolen from the IMFDB site). And the reason why IMFDB does that because the MOVIE about the shootout used those weapons, but as we know the REAL incident used Norincos and the article for the most part fairly list Chinese type 56 rifles in their photos.

    Don't you love it when so-called documentaries or "movies about" aren't as accurate as they could be? My wife used to complain about me complaining about inaccuracy in movies. Still do.
