Am I the only one here who owns a VSKA?

Been a bunch of new members coming out of the gates swinging for the fences with condescension. Had one PM me this morning because he didn't like the price for an item he was looking for, of which I found and posted a link. There are better ways to make friends in the internet and my ignore list gets longer by the day.

Only non AK guys own or keep VSKAs. It’s no big deal, some people just are not knowledgeable on AKs. Deerhurst was just trying to help.

You can still find a WASR UNDER $1000. I don’t trust century built rifles. Imports yes. Century built no..
I agree with this assessment on all counts.

In retrospect, I know he was trying to help.
He did come off as condescending in his first post, which was probably mostly my perception, as I have been in a crappy overall mood the last couple weeks. @Deerhurst I do apologize for acting like a dick.
I have known about their rep since shortly after I bought the one I am keeping (‘cause f*** it, why not?) which, has had zero issues, and, not generally being an AK guy (which, along with reloading and building pistols, I have picked a poor time to begin a real interest in), I trusted what I had read on the internet and had gathered from the majority of reviews, and bought a second one (which has sold to a member here, who also knows their rep and only after testing it out and checking headspace) mainly because I wanted a second AK, and trusted that, due to reviews and my previous experience, this was an ok choice. NOW - I have my eye on other rifles I am trying to get, I would settle for a WASR (cannot find one either in this state or online, not really looking to drive 5 hours round trip to get one) but I am getting ready to make an offer on a WBP Fox, which is why I’m selling a couple of my firearms now.
Anyhow, I’m a cranky butthole sometimes. You guys are too, I seent it. Apologies and crow eaten.

I always recommend people get imports when they can. But people get what they get, no point in condemning them for it.

Granted I'll make the mistake of forgetting not to, but even so. If they aren't an AK guy, they won't be shooting it enough for it to matter.
