    No....Just more so. I went thru in the early 60's and 'command presence' was, and still is, a taught and and tested for 'attribute'. Maybe I was lucky in going to a very rural area, where backup wasn't two minutes away. 'Verbal Judo', as taught now, was unknown so you'd better have been able to communicate in a reasonable manner, make some sense, and generally work things out.

    I was just remembering some of the obnoxious things I said and did when I was a young pup in the Air Force, nearly 40 years ago.... I don't know why, but the older guys tolerated me.

    Now that I'm the "senior citizen", I try not to be too critical of younger folks. Just my way of repaying a debt, I suppose.

    I'd say "No more unAmerican as Him for selling it" and pointed to the counter person.
    BTW I have a WASR and LOVE it.

    I was suprised at how accurate this ak is. Everyone gave wasrs bad reps but mine is almost flawless

    My opinion: Forget the cop. If it shoots well, and you like it, buy it.

    Let me start by saying that my son is a cop. I love my son, BUT when he puts on the blue uniform he turns in to a First Class JERK. I use a word a little stronger than "jerk" when I am telling this to him. I don't know why it is but it just happens, I have talked with him about that and he just laughs it off.:confused::(:confused:

    I love the WASR 10, it is a great rifle and is cheaper to shoot than a lot of rifles. Want some fun, get yourself one of the 75 round drums for it!!:rolleyes:;)

  8. Well, why didn't you buy American? Oops wait, there are a couple of Japanese wonders going back to WWII in my closet and another with Weatherby's name on it but made in Japan. Forget I said anything.

    Of all the cops I trained in marksmanship that I know made it a career the last one retired 2 years ago. The punk kid is a Grandpa now...Damn where did the time go? Anyway of the cop types you just ran into I had two in my first classes. Neither made it to the end of the year in uniform.

    Funny thing too because I had them at different times and on the first day both asked me when I was going to teach them to quick draw. Didn't have to worry about them having rocks in their heads, they were solid bone.

    Just smile, nod your head, and in your inside the head voice tell him he's a tool and not let it bother you. Way too many in the ego echelon to let them ruin your day. Shine it on don't let the btards get to you.

    Quarrel not at all.
    No man resolved to make the most of himself can spare
    time for personal contention.
    Still less can he afford to take all the consequences,
    including the vitiating of his temper and loss of
    self control. Yield larger things to which you can show
    no more than equal right; and yield lesser ones,
    though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog
    than be bitten by him in contesting for the right.
    Even killing the dog would not cure the bite.

    Glad your enjoying you're enjoying your AK. It baffles me that an officer in uniform would feel the need to bad mouth a civilian on a purchase of any kind. That doesn't seem to project the imagine that, an officer would want to portray.

    Happy Shooting
