    Just watching the 10PM news on ch 5 Chicago (NBC). They did a piece on the AK47. Cops talking about how this is such a dangerous weapon. And you can buy it in a gun shop! Lots of footage of people firing full-auto. Implying, without actually saying so, that they're all FA.
    The gal doing the report was firing one FA and not only was there muzzle climb but she was wiggling it side to side erratically and talked about how this evil gun is impossible to control.
    We also learned that the bullets go "over a block". Oh my!
    A real hatchet job.

    video about halfway down the page.

    What a crock. They show an agent shoot full auto and keep it all center-mass, then in the next scene she talks about how they are impossible to control. To demonstrate this fact they have her fire full auto from the hip :greddy::noes:

    I am so fucking sick of all this liberal media bullshit. This is why I don't have cable, I don't listen to the radio and my time on the internet decreases with every passing day. This country is in shitter big time. Every aspect is sickening.

    The AK-47 is the best assault type weapon made today. It will never fail to fire unlike the AR-15. It is 100% reliable and fairly accurate. It's ugly but will serve you well.

    The Bulgarian ones are some of the best.

    This weekend I was shooting with a guy who was having a hell of a time with his AK. My Bushmaster ran just fine.

    Oh, funny thing: The AK in question was built by Keesh.:noes:

    ETA: To be fair, this was the first time he had experienced these problems and was also firing hollow points for the first time, so he figured it just doesn't like 'em.

  19. It's just a machine gun. Add an optic and it would be a sniper rifle.

    This is the ak-47 assault rifle, it makes a very distinct sound when being fired at you by your enemy.

    bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang


    RUN !!!!!!!

    Need to watch that again.
