The Wider Image: More in Taiwan seek gun training as Ukraine war drives home China threat
"Taiwan spirit, world Number 1" is seen written on the flag of Taiwan on the backpack of a trainee 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. Since the war in Ukraine started three months ago, bookings have nearly quadrupled for lessons in how to shoot airsoft guns, or low-power devices designed to shoot non-metallic projectiles. "More and more people are coming to take part," said Max Chiang, chief executive of Polar Light. REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "WANG TAIWAN AIRSOFT GUNS" FOR THIS STORY.
