I agree with you Freedom. I don’t disagree with a lot of what the original posting said – I question it’s being universal.
I own ARs, I also have repair parts for them. I own AKs, but I don’t own any repair parts – never needed them. The Guns are different. To be perfectly honest they compliment each other. To say one is better than the other is questionable. The actual issue goes back to training, If you’ve had it or are going to get it an AR is ok. If not, the AKs are more forgiving – that’s why conscription armys around the world use them. If you are going to carry an AR, remember you are shooting a cartridge designed to wound, not kill.
