Re: Shooting an AK-47

YUP.  You can lay down a steady spray of destruction.  I actually cleaned mine this weekend. Everything in the safe got a thorough once-over.

Re: Shooting an AK-47

Never shot an AK, AR-15s are fun when they have the right parts  wink

The most fun I've had has been a .50 Desert eagle.  SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!  roxor

Re: Shooting an AK-47

I don't understand why people are allowed to own these kinds of guns.  I mean seriously you don't need automatic weapons.....that being said I would LOVE to go to a gun range and shoot some full-auto AR's but I mean....I don't think you average person should have the right to own fully-auto weapons.  Not saying that semi-auto weapons don't kill more people but having them out there is just asking for it.  And I'm sure the people on these forums with these weapons take good care of them and keep them locked up and what not....but my .02 NOBODY needs or should have an automatic weapon.

Guess what!
If that SKS was "converted" to be full-auto after May 19, 1986 by anyone other than a Type II SOT/Class III Manufacturer, it's a big fat felony.
Congrats! wink

We are not. Kind of. Machine Guns were banned in 1986 (hence above post). The only people who may possess machine guns made after the ban are "Class III" manufacturers, Class III dealers, Type II SOTs, and police departments.
However, civilians CAN purchase machine guns or registered drop-in auto sears (RDIAS) as long as they were made before May 19, 1986. Otherwise it would violate the Ex post facto clause of the Constitution. However, since the supply is VERY limited, the prices of these weapons is enormous. For instance, if you're looking for an HK MP5A2 with SEF (safe, semi, auto) trigger pack, you're going to spend 20,00+ dollars. Obviously, the more rare the item, the higher the price.


To the OP: Any idea Make/Model/Country?


This is my AKM-47, built off of a Romanian parts kit. Manufactured by Lancaster Consulting.

As always, if you have any questions about Machine Guns or the National Firearms Act of 1934 feel free to ask.

Yup, they are fun as hell to shoot. How does your shoulder feel? If i put enough rounds down range I'm sore for a couple days. They are pretty brutal, in a good way!

Re: Shooting an AK-47

I got pulled over by a state patrol officer last year and I had a few guns visible in the back seat.  They were all in cases except the AK (it was partially wrapped in a blanket).  He freaked out and ran back to his cruiser and ordered me out at gunpoint. He had me sit in the criuser while he inspected my firearms.  He said I'd be in a world of trouble if the action of the AK had been modified. He fooled with it for a while and then apologized and let me go. He asked what someone like me was doing with a gun like that.  I told him "For fun."  He said "there's nothing fun about something like that."  And then went on to explain that an AK is pretty much an officer's worst nightmare.

I can see it from both sides.  Shooting is a fun hobby for me.  However, these types of guns can do a lot of harm in a short amount of time.  But...I'm not getting rid of mine anytime soon.

Did not hurt at all.   At first I aimed, then shot.  Second time, aimed, shot, aimed shot shot shot..  Then the third time I let the trees, ground, an what ever I was not aiming at have it. (Area was safe, and I was not spraying, just unloading rounds)

I see why they are an officers nightmare.   This gun was legal, but from what I heard, they are easily made into automatics.  Get caught, your going to federal pound in the ass prison...

Re: Shooting an AK-47

Have shot the AK 47 & 74 both Semi auto.  Didn't like how inacurate they were (compared to my M1A socom 16) May just have been the examples I had in my hand (74 was Class III w/ short barrle).  The 47 with it's 7.62x39 round is a blast to plink with.  Less kick than  the .308/7.62x51NATO but you feel like you are doing something, compared to the AR15 where only the loud bang lets you know the gun went off.   

As to the Cops worst nightmare.   The AK is popular with Gangs but how many of them can land rapid fire torso shots from the hip let alone at any range.  I would be more concerned with a whacked out ex-vet with a .30 cal M1 carbine. Or someone who knows how to shoot a M1 Garand both semi auto and in the hands of a skilled marksman much more deadly.

They're not as concerned about the drive-by as they are the crack dealer who could lay down some serious fire power as they walk through the door.  my co-worker used to work SWAT is SLO, CA and his best friend was killed during a raid.  They broke the windows, set off flash bangs, and entered quickly.  The guy they were looking for was on the couch.  As the lead officer approached him, another guy stepped out of the kitchen with an AK and started spraying. 3 officers were shot and one died. AK's are bad news for cops.

Anything in the hands of a trained marksman is more deadly than a gang banger with a gun.

I tend to forget the inside approach as I only ever use a handgun when "house clearing" (IDPA)

Re: Shooting an AK-47

I shot The Judge by Taurus 2 weekends ago, sweet revolver that shoots both .45 caliber and 410 shotgun shells.  It was a blast!

Just like this, only with a 6 1/2" barrel:
