That picture was taken on the road to Sikiang, same trip as with R. Green and the French Monks. Those guys are Lo-Lo's and the guns are home made. My recollection was that the barrels were wraped with wire. They were interested in our guns, and looked them over carefully. They were very friendly, and seemed to enjoy our roadside visit. These are mountain people, and many had large goiters on their necks due to lack of Iodine salt. We used sign language I recall. It worked.

HE WAS A REAL NICE GUY.
