    3 inch long bullet is rather amusing too.

    Meh, its Saginaw, what can you expect. I'd rank the general caliber of their citizenry & police force right behind Detroit & Flint.

    I guess they expect people to not have rulers, or any concept of length? Maybe reporters just write with the ink refills, stay away from that expensive casing.

    I think the bullet and casing of the 7.62x54R is 3 inches long.

    well its common for non-gun people to refer to the entire cartridge as a "bullet"..

    but everyone knows a pen is longer than 3 inches..

    It's funny how they left out the part about AK rounds being shorter than most hunting rounds. Fuck the media.

    at least they didnt claim the AK47 is a communist weapon which will someday come to life and overthrow our govt and claim our land for Russia....but seeing the rest of the article, I am surprised they did not say something about that.

    Doesn't the Lee Enfield No. 4 boast the ability to fire 100 rounds per minute by a skilled rifleman? So why the hell is this author scared of an AK that can shoot 75 rounds in the same amount of time?

    The old Lee was said to be quick enough to take 40 rounds a minute.

    I doubt that anyone but an trick shooter can do 75 rounds a minute with an AK.

    Your finger would get tired.
