Re: American vs. non-American
Should one stop and consider, the AK's we have here that are worth a dang are hybrids of american and com-block parts, to be legal with all the goodies it was meant to come with. I say get an AKM AND an AR. The AKM is hard to beat as a truck gun, as to the fact that if you are in town or having to jump out of your vehicle with a firearm you'll more than likely be within 30 yds of the threat, and you can poke through stuff the 5.56 wont. And the AR, particularly the M4 styled, is hard to beat as it can reach out and touch threats at a better distance than what is usually feasible with most patrol rifles running an intermediate cartridge, and at a greater rate of fire while sustaining superior accuracy. Two different schools of thought and each is the best of what they were designed for (in my humble opinion, if it counts for anything) and each is a legend in the world community. God bless our second amendment rights, and spoil the socialist agendas that would try to defeat them.
