Buy a Kalashnikov, save the world

Pg3_tank_3 I don't usually recommend guns as ethical gifts. Call me old-fashioned, but it's not often they qualify. This morning, however, I heartily recommend you buy a kalashnikov, a rocket launcher, a small armoured vehicle or - best of all - a tank with a bendy canon like the one pictured. I'm not recommending you get the tank so you can drive it around town like Chris Eubank in his Aston. Instead, your £25 gun or your £1k tank will be used by Sierra Leone blacksmiths and metal workers to make everything from farm tools such as sickles and pick-axes to school bells. Which is very cool for the people of Sierra in addition to being a tidy symbol about making war into peace. Get yours from Good Gifts.
