Anti-Junta Forces in Laukkai, Myanmar Fighting From The Rooftops

This footage, provided by the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA) shows some of their fighters firing on government troops in Laukkai, in the Shan state of Myanmar. The Junta soldiers can be seen on the ground level at 0:19. While I struggle to find a credible explanation for why, the MDAA cameraman switches to his handgun at 0:27 and fires, despite the highly improbable range. As the video goes on to show, the team has a machine gun in addition to their RPG, so unless someone bet him a beer or something of the sort, the handgun is a strange choice indeed. The end of the video features some burned out remains of vehicles and weapons, presumably the aftermath of the seizure of Laukkai.
