Gun Culture in Thailand: Exploring Bangkok’s Gun District

by Admin on February 15, 2013

In the Old City of Rattanakosin, just outside Chinatown, you’ll find the epicenter of gun culture in Bangkok. Almost 80 gun and weapons shops line Wang Burapha Road. Shotguns and rifles stand upright in retail window displays next to arrays of handguns and ammo.

For Thais looking to purchase guns, there’s no other place to go. For foreign gun-enthusiasts, the most you can do is look.

We set out on Wang Burapha Road to see what kind of weapons the shops offered, and what it would take to get our hands on one (read: a foreigner and a native Thai).
