Omanis, Guns and Rials

In a corner of the Ibra souk there's a little gun shop, a place to shake a hand, mouth off and buy arms. The scene looks like a testosterone-fueled muffin shop, all the men hanging out and chatting. Stop by for a fresh date and rifle cleaning.

"Greetings, can I help you find something in a double barrel?" Ibra, like most of Oman, is rural and rifles are used to guard the livestock, mostly goats, sheep and camels.

Sizing up the merchandise, chatting up the fellow customers. It's a social thing.
