The Moro possess many such weapons, part of which they manufacture themselves. The gun carriages are usually very rude or entirely lacking, and the guns are of short range. To make up for the many imperfections of the weapon, it is filled with projectiles and the fire is held until the enemy is very near. In this way it is easy to take aim and no shots are wasted. |
