Minimalist 101: Sometimes a piece of pipe, a nail, some shotgun shells and a whole lot of Attitude is all you need.
Members of the Irish Gardai were reportedly fired upon by a man armed with a pocket pipe during a drug raid on a property in Cork.
“They are known as slam bang shotguns – they are very crude but very effective improvised firearms, they work every time and never jam,” said Det Insp Coholan, adding CCTV footage showed them being moved into the house from a nearby derelict property in the days before the raid.
He said that in addition to the two improvised shotguns and the discharged cartridge, gardaí also found 20 other live rounds of ammunition as well as a collection of pitchforks, slash hooks, a broken pool cue and a knife as well as 25 petrol bombs ready for use, some in the house and some in a shed. “
