I would much rather be shot at with an AK than an AR….. I know that most AR’s are much more accurate at distance so there is much more “spray and pray” factor with the AK.
Either way, getting shot sucks. This is why I have two different types of body armor. Soft level II (concealable) and hard level IV (with backers). Even the wife has level IV plates in a sentry carrier.
Did I mention that getting shot sucks?
