I did not mention the AK74 as if it were the same as an AK. I referenced it to make point about why people call it AK47.
I didn't say using gas impingement to chamber 5.56 makes a rifle an AR either.
The original AKs had milled receivers. Damn near everything being labelkes as an AK now such as the replicas have stamoed receivers.
I made an argument that not everyone wants to stand there and spend ten minutes explaining every little detail and history about their gun everytime
I know it's not an original AK.
I've got firearms with all myriads of alphanumeric labelling.
Doesn't mean that everytime I go to the gun range I'm going to explain the every little detail of my gun to everybody who comes up to me asking me
what kind of gun I'm using.
I didn't look at Grimpachi's link.
I too consider myself an avid firearms enthusiast, and I love talking about guns and modifications and etc., But there's no reason to expect people to
be snobs about it.
I'm a big believer in people being able to enjoy their freedom and all that, and that extends right down to doing whatever they want with their
firearms. It's theirs. It's their property. If they want to do something that other people would consider ridiculous, by all meams they should do
I've got a few frankenstein guns myself that I built just because I could. They look completely ridiculous, but they're fun as hell to shoot.
And yes. I fully agree that the guy was a LARPer. I don't care if he was former military and had "training." He should have known better. His facial
expressions and body language come across as ill adjusted to social interaction, and he had no business running into an unknown situation when he was
apparently with his quadriplegic wife.
He should have stuck beside her, and instead he left her and ran off to his demise.
So, I don't think he was using his brain.
First of all, the guy should have been wearing body armor. He would have most likely survived, unless he took a round to the noggin.
He should have stayed next to his wife. It's highly irresponsible. He ran off and got killed, leaving his wife unable to defend herself. What would
have hapoened if it turned into a full on violent situation. She can't even move herself. He ended up outting her life at risk as well.
