Well, shoot

Rifles are a huge part of emirati heritage. Less than 50 years ago, towns were tiny, the deserts were vast and you needed something reliable and accurate to hunt and protect yourself. That's not even remotely true anymore, but the long gun (like falconry) is a cultural icon among the natives that remains celebrated.

I might try to celebrate it myself. More later.
