    Yes. It's more than worthy. I feel that everyone should have an SKS as part of their collection. They shoot cheap ammo (7.62x39) and are rock solid.
    In fact my Romanian SKS is my SHTF rifle. Stick with the stock magazine and forget about aftermarket detachable mags, since they're junk.

    Also look around at the other dealers and see which of them has the best price.

    Do you have your C&R FFL or are you going to have a dealer buy this for you?? If you don't have your C&R you should get one.

    Even thought they suck ass, you can get the modded 20-30 rd mags for the SKS.

    I guess when your wife has your balls in her hands, anything is better than nothing.

    My g/f said no to me getting ANY type of rifle, shes pretty much 'the wife' though.

    My response: You wanna shoot it when I get it?

    She wasnt too happy about that haha.

    I picked up an Romainian Ak at a gunshow for $320. I think the sks/ak is a good SHTF gun because 7.62x39 is cheap and pletiful. What do you want to do with the gun? That will determine if you should go for the sks or something else.

    With no FFL, you arrange a transfer with a dealer around you.

    You're going to need to go to a FFL and have them buy it for you. Note, they'll most likely mark up the price that AIM's website has it for.

    Best thing to do is apply for a C&R FFL. The whole process takes anywhere from 30-60 days.

    Get the AK. Tell her you're not Iraqi so there's nothing to worry about.
    My girlfriend has the potential to be as big a gun nut me :eek3:

    Most people including PT (who coudlnt get a woman with an AK to his head) that when you are married and there is a "disagreement" some things arent worth fighting for.
    Although I could buy an AK and take the high cap mag off it and she wouldnt know the difference. There are other guns I can get if I want.
