I ran across this doozy on facebook this morning. Maya added me to this FB group a few weeks ago and told me “this is the dumbest gun group I have ever seen.” Thats really saying something when it comes to FB gun groups. They are full of all kinds of “helpful advice” from people like the guy above.
He managed to get the mag stuck in his AK pretty impressively. I have seen this happen so many times I can’t count. Which always makes me chuckle. The AK is so simple any third world dirt farmer can use it. The gun really isn’t all that ergonomic with its controls though. The safety for instance. The magazine rocking is used on other models and I have never liked it. Of course these things can be over come with training. But that doesn’t make it great. I could learn to drink pepsi if I choked it down over a long enough time. That doesn’t make it Coca-cola.
I don’t want to say the AR15 has spoiled us. That’s not exactly right, but it has set a gold standard for ease of operation.
