    So I just saw this, kind of interesting...

    I was going to post a link and the text but I guess that's a no no.

    SO here's what I read, there's this guy named Mikhail Kalashnikov and he dreamed up a gun design in a hospital bed in 1941 and it was named AK-47. which stands for "Avtomat Kalashnikov," or “Kalashnikov’s machine,”

    Anyway looks like a company in Florida plans to start making them in the US.

    That's about it, found an article on Fox that seems to support my story... ;)

    "Kalashnikov USA" is not the same company as "Kalashnikov Concern" in Russia. As far as I can tell they just stole the name to confuse people

    PSA and other companies are already making AK's "made int he USA"

    I agree that guy has git it going on. Wonder what kind of Wodka he drinks? Maybe that's been my problem. Tennessee whisky and AKs have proven to be strange bed mates. LOL. Thanks for the fascinating link Flopsweat!

    Looks like Absolute in the one picture, Gordon's in another, Stolichnaya in the last two. So Stoli I guess. :D
