The Wider Image: More in Taiwan seek gun training as Ukraine war drives home China threat
Tattoo artist, Su Chun, 39, holds an airsoft gun during an airsoft gun shooting lesson at the shooting range of the combat skill training company Polar Light, in New Taipei City, Taiwan, May 21, 2022. Those preparing against a threat from China include Su, who was determined to learn how to use air guns. "I wanted to learn some combat skills, including those that are not just limited to using a gun. Maybe skills to be able to react to any kind of situation," he said. But gun training would be useful if the government called up reservists like himself to repulse a Chinese invasion, Su added. "Most people don't want to go to war, I also don't want to go to war, but in the unfortunate event of this really happening, I will be mentally prepared."
