        Maybe Americans are getting rid of candy wrappers and stocking up with weapons and ammunition, buying up everything that stands for their debts.

          As an option. Especially with the recent attempts to prohibit the sale of firearms in the States, the people there are really brutalized and sweep away from the shelves everything that can bum, report from the field. Although, it should be noted that Obama does not prohibit trunks, especially with his domestic policy, universal impoverishment and constant shooting in public places. And if he still screwed up at least somewhere, then Dixieland would definitely rebel.
          I read an interesting info from half a year ago, saying that Saiga will go to the arsenal there for both British and Australian specialists. Is it interpreted as the fact that they swallowed pride and began to buy good trunks from former enemies?

        U.S. company Iver Johnson has begun selling the 1911A1 Carbine carbine, which is an attempt to turn the popular 1911 pistol into an AR type rifle

        AK-12, lost to AEK. But he was admitted to military tests, only they will have to produce an experimental batch at their own expense. After the military and it will be clear to the end ...

    In general, the news is good! More orders - more money - richer than Russia.

        Well, why, SCSs in the Americas are quoted, they only change the stock and stocks, sometimes the trunks are also replaced with a different caliber and voila, a good trunk for fishing and shooting. I also know that MP-143 and other KOs are well bought. About Saigi correctly silent.

    The results of the year showed that "hunting" and "sport" shooting prevails in schools and other public places in the United States.

    AK-based vending machines are manufactured by at least sixteen companies in the 11 states of the United States.
    So, the Bulgarian company Arsenal, which has now opened a branch in the United States and has launched production of automatic machines there. And it’s not a secret for anyone that the Americans themselves in Vietnam, Iraq and now in Afghanistan, abandoned their M-16 and M-4, using captured AKs. And the soldiers of the puppet armies simply abandoned the captured weapons, preferring the AK.

        C'mon, what nonsense ...
        "Our rifles fail too often due to constant dust, but the Kalashnikovs are not afraid of it," says Sgt. Tracy McCarson from Virginia. "The M-16, of course, hits more accurately at long distances, but" Kalashnikovs "are more effective in combat on the streets of the city and during raids, in addition, they have greater penetrating power." In Iraq, several US military personnel have died due to delays in the feed of an American rifle. "Plus, tank crews only have 9mm pistols, so they willingly take Kalashnikovs with them," says Eric Harmon.

        Well, these photos are also photoshop:
        Vietnam:


        Iraq:


        At the same time, let me know, but in the IDF, are the AK-47 and AKM not in service, for example, in the elite naval special forces Saaret-13

        And the RPG-7 is generally used in parts of the IDF and not only in the 2007-2010. and generally starting in the late 1960's.

    I wonder what ours can offer a spoiled American shooter?

    After all, our weapons do not have that glossy poppin wrapper, fashion upgrades, the modularity that Americans love.

    But there are plenty of AK clones, for example, Bulgarian AKs, which are not inferior in reliability to ours, and there are more pop songs.

    supposedly Saiga will go to the arsenal there and the British and Australian specialists.

    The question of arming the assault groups of the police with the "carbine" Saiga-12K isp.030 / 040 was considered (it seems that nothing came of this venture).

    but what has the colt ??? the question is different. why an ordinary American, to protect himself and his family, can easily buy at least a Kalash, a Colt, a Browning, or all of them put together ... but a Russian has no right to acquire or defend himself. and by the way on the topic "where is he to Kalash" - I admit the thought that you were holding "akm" in your hands, and "colt" ???

    Kishlaks clean it up ... I wrote for a long time that the American army is fooling around with our weapons in Iraq, and they all answered me, they say, take pictures for show-offs ... Of course, it’s better to leave your M-4 at the base and take Kalash, then the soul will unfasten to clean fingertips from the M-4 ...

    I am inclined to believe that either the Kalashnikov press service distorts the situation, or does not know this situation ..... spent 5 minutes on Yandex and dug up this: (the source is not state, unverified, but I think the order of numbers is not far from the truth ) According to the results of 2012, Russia ranked 8th among the exporters of "shooters" to the United States with a trace. numbers ... pistols - 11500 pieces, which is surprising ... rifles and carbines - 153 pieces, smoothbore - 000 pieces .... add up ... and? after all, almost all of this is the product of those factories that are now included in "Kalashnikov" ... draw your own conclusions. and 47 more points: 000. A smoothbore like "Saiga" and "VPO" in our country in other versions can not be bought, but what is offered has risen in price and strongly (is this, the pursuit of profit or the policy of government agencies?) and 2. rumors (do not swear at me right away, but in every joke, as you know, there is only a fraction of a joke) muddy that ... then the words are not mine, I just quote not for the sake of a swear, but constructive for .... " One more familiar person left the production of 1 Izhmash.
    According to him - the situation is absolutely unbearable, every day swearing, boorish scolding, shouting. According to Zlobin, everyone is ignorant, mediocre and scum.
