    To that end, the AK-47 has been ideal for those who don’t adhere to “spit and polish” type drilling. Instead, the weapon was developed based on experiences gained when Russian soldiers – many of whom were conscripted to defend the motherland – fought for their very survival. It wasn’t uncommon for those conscripts to be deployed to the front line almost immediately, with little training and almost no instruction on weapons maintenance.

    She was riding shotgun – with an AK-47. The San Francisco Police Department posted a photo of a woman hanging out of the passenger seat of a speeding Cadillac. “During an illegal exhibition of speed event at Barneveld & McKinnon, a passenger leaned out of a Cadi holding an AK47,” the traffic safety unit said in a tweet about the July 11 incident. The vehicle from the Wild West scene was finally tracked down and seized Wednesday, police said. A speed exhibition is a crime under California’s Vehicle Code 23109, KRON4 reported. Police did not say whether the gun-toting woman...

    A BRAVE Brit contractor shot dead two ISIS militants with an AK47 during the Mozambique massacre and then hid out in the jungle. Nick Alexander, a dual British-South African citizen, spent two nights crawling through the bush with colleagues before being rescued at the weekend. The former cop was at the back of a convoy of expats that came under heavy fire from militants on Friday evening, reports the Times. Mr Alexander, a contractor building camps for gas workers in Africa, has since made contact with his daughter Jayde, 29, in Johannesburg. “He saw the commotion with the ambush ahead...

    Before I graduated from high school, I overheard the older brother of a close friend talking about shooting a bear. The bear had been discovered in a den, during the Wisconsin deer season. As I recall, in 1968, such a harvest would have been legal.The older brother was a Vietnam veteran. He approached the den with another vet. The brother suggested the other vet poke into the den to see if the bear were still there.The other veteran said no, he would not do it. The brother said, well, in Vietnam, you went into holes to get Charlie.Whereupon, the other...
  • AK-47 Vs. M16: Which Assault Rifle Is Better?

    19FortyFive ^ | 1/28/2021 | Peter Suicu
    There are numerous debates that will likely never be resolved – Coke vs. Pepsi, rock vs. country – but when it comes to firearms, the debate goes deeper than mere opinion, especially when it is the AK-47 vs. M16. Both were developed during the Cold War, and while Soviet soldiers and Americans never actually met (fortunately) on the battlefield, the weapons have been used against one another in countless other conflicts. Unlike ongoing debates over whether a Glock is better than a SIG Sauer or if 9mm is superior to .45 APC, the assault weapon debate is one where soldiers...
  • World’s Best Rifle? Russian AK-47 vs. U.S. M-16

    Image: Wikimedia Commons.Like the M16 and many other rifle arms since the early 1900s (and a few pistols, most notably Israel’s Desert Eagle), the AK-47 is gas operated.Here's What You Need to Remember: There is a relevant cultural and historical legacy at work here. American arms are informed by a history and a legacy in which a colonial farmer could shoot down a squirrel or a British officer with a rifled musket from a hundred yards. Russian arms, meanwhile, are informed by a history of a lot of peasant soldiers slogging through the mud to engage. No wonder, then, that...
  • Minnesota nonprofit with $35M bails out those accused of violent crimes

    A Minnesota nonprofit has bailed out defendants from Twin Cities jails charged with murder, violent felonies, and sex crimes, as it seeks to address a system that disproportionately incarcerates Black people and people of color. And it has plenty of money to do it. The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) received $35 million in donations in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd, with many of those donations intended to help protesters who were jailed during the demonstrations and riots in May. The group’s mission was celebrated on social media with praise from Hollywood celebrities, like Steve Carell, Cynthia...

    In the time leading up to his shootout with police, Adam Zaborowski lost his job, lost a custody battle for his child and was “just not handling the pandemic well,” his lawyer said Sunday. The 35-year-old Slatington man was charged Saturday with attempting to kill seven police officers near his home at 801 Main St. That shootout followed an incident Friday where Zaborowski allegedly shot at a clerk at Cigars International in Bethlehem Township. He allegedly refused to wear a face mask in the cigar store despite the threat of COVID-19. Defense attorney John Waldron said a conversation with Zaborowski’s...

    A Chicago woman, evidently frustrated by armed guards at a local cell phone preventing her acquisition of new equipment during the recent rioting, tells us a lot about the state of thinking in the riot-American community. She's not showing a lot of intersectional solidarity with Muslim immigrants, whom she denounces as not real Africans because they are from Morocco (she says), and at one point, she repeatedly yells, "Burn them, Allah!" as she drives by, circling around to extend the harangue. It's unfair, you see, because the black lives she thinks they will take are not insured, though she presumes...

    Despite a continued explosion of “gun sanctuaries” in nearly every corner of Virginia, the new Democratic-controlled legislature on Friday took the first step to ban sporting rifles, large-capacity magazines, and suppressors. In a 12-9 vote, the House Public Safety Committee voted to ban “assault weapons” such as the popular AR-15 and AK-47, magazines that hold more than 12 rounds, and sound suppressors effective July 1.~~~SNIP~~~The legislation was amended so that those who own the banned weapons would not have to give them up or register them, but the ban on big magazines and suppressors would stand.

    Here's a tricked out AK47, inspired by the Russian Counter-Terrorist team Alpha. Its not the real deal because its not available in the U.S. This AK is a clone imitation put together by Youtuber Larry Vicker. Vicker used an Arsenal Semiautomatic Bulgarian-made AK. In five-five six. The only reason the five-five six was used is that its what he had on hand. The Russians AK were using five-four-five and Seven-six-two by thirty-nine. Not that they are opposed to five-five six, matter of fact Vicker saw at least one guy was using an M4 in five-five six. Their AKs were five-four-five...

    On January 17, 2020, President Donald Trump pointed to the gun control situation in Virginia, noting that it proves once more the Democrats “will take your guns” if voted into office. He made this point amid the all-out war on guns by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and the newly elected Democrat majority in the state legislature. Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 17, 2020...

    Following the fourth Democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio, BlazeTV's Eric Bolling questioned candidates Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) about their support for a gun confiscation policy, and asked billionaire presidential candidate Tom Steyer why he thinks the economy isn't thriving under President Donald Trump. "Congressman, can you please clarify how you will get the ARs and AKs back," Bolling asked O'Rourke. "I expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If you own and AR-15, if you own an AK-47, and it is no longer legal to own that, I expect you to turn it in," O'Rourke said....
