A Weapons Inventory

The Hungarian fighters in 1956 were rightly admired throughout the world for their attacks on the Soviet Army with a hodgepodge of scrounged up weapons, home-made molotov cocktails, and their bare hands. 

But there was still quite a variety of weaponry on the Budapest streets, some of which was quite surprising and some of which, like the first photo of an insurgent using an AK-47, would change the entire face of insurgencies in the future.
