    I don't have an AK, but if I did I'd shoot it out of respect for him. So I guess my AR's will have to do.

    RIP. He may have been a commie, but he designed a fantastic rifle.
    (With various inspirations of course)

    The AK is by far my favorite platform.

    I hope Browning, Garand, Stoner and many others are with whomever they please. I doubt that the list would include Kalashnikov...for very long anyway.


    Edit: don't get me wrong, may Kalashnikov rest in peace.
