The holiday is celebrated only for the fourth time, it was officially approved in 2010, owing its appearance to the outstanding designer, the generally recognized genius of weapons of thought, the inventor of the legendary assault rifle - Mikhail Timofeevich Kalashnikov, whose name day falls on this date: September 19, the Russian Orthodox Church glorifies the leader angelic army of the archangel Michael.


Monument to Izhevsk gunsmiths


For obvious reasons, the new holiday gained popularity among the residents of the cities where the leading enterprises of the military-industrial complex are located: in Izhevsk, Votkinsk, Tula and others, where a number of important events are timed to coincide with this holiday.

Izhevsk will celebrate the holiday with the presentation of the new Kalashnikov concern, which will unite all the largest domestic enterprises involved in the production of small arms, writes AIF-Udmurtia. More than 200 high-ranking guests from Russia and from abroad were invited to the presentation.

Tula will meet Gunsmith's Day in commemoration of the developers of weapons, and a bust of legendary weapon designer Alexander Ganichev will be solemnly opened on the city’s Walk of Fame, reports Interfax.

We sincerely congratulate all Russian gunsmiths on their professional holiday, we wish them new achievements and success in their work, prosperity, peace and well-being in their families!

    Happy Holidays!

    And still long, long years of life and health to Mikhail Timofeevich !!!


    The holiday is celebrated only for the fourth time, it was officially approved in 2010, owing its appearance to the outstanding designer, the universally recognized genius of weapons of thought, the inventor of the legendary assault rifle - Mikhail Timofeevich Kalashnikov, whose nameday falls just on this date: September 19, the Russian Orthodox Church glorifies the leader angelic army of the archangel Michael.




    Concern "Kalashnikov", created on the initiative of Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian government Dmitry Rogozin, just over a month ago received official registration. Legendary constructor Mikhail Timofeevich Kalashnikov, donated the right to bear his name to the new weapons concern.

      hi
      Russian words Matryoshka, Balalaika, in the end, Vodka - are perceived in the world with a certain amount of irony and smile.
      Russian words Satellite и Kalashnikov taken seriously and serve as an assessment of its defense capabilities and inventive spirit of the people, which is not in many countries.
      How many memories will you find in the folklore of developed countries about the Lefthander of the local spill?
      But the Russians have it!
      There are, like many other wonderful people who are known NOT only in Russia, but throughout the world.
      Only N.F. Makarov and E.F.Dragunov what are they worth!
      And A.G. Shipunov and V.P. Gryazev ?!
      Gunsmiths from God - for years they have determined the face of the modern world!
      Thanks to them, in many respects Russia exists as a free country, but NOT a resource colony of rainbow universal people with their liberal and shitty democratic inclinations.
      Ultimately, the Kalashnikov assault rifle, and not the Eugene Stoner M-16 rifle, is depicted on their emblems whole countries, the fathers of their boys are called Kalash, not Colt or Browning!
      A deep bow and best wishes to these talented workers and true patriots of their country, a peaceful sky and a dignified life in a country called Russia ...

    He was born in Novomoskovsk (formerly Stalinogorsk), lived there for up to two years, I am proud, because the city is right under Tula! In the museum of weapons was pride in our gunsmiths takes! There also was a flea savvy, under a microscope.

    Congratulations to all the gunsmiths, we have something to be proud of.
    The modern military-industrial complex in Russia was created by Stalin.
    You can also recall Ivan the Terrible, who was very fond of firearms, Grozny carried out the first industrialization: everywhere he put powder and weapons factories, poured guns and muskets :)
