      He was on a business trip in Izhevsk. There was a free minute - I went to the Kalashnikov Museum. The exposition is still replenishing, but there is already something to see. And here is a monument to Mikhail Timofeevich at the entrance to the museum (if anything, do not exact it - you took pictures on your cell phone) wink

    "A monument in honor of MT Kalashnikov will appear in Moscow"...

    Well, to such people to establish monuments - God himself ordered ...
    Already it was possible for him to put a monument during his lifetime ...

    Is it a joke - his weapons have conquered almost the whole world ... Even the United States, with its weapons stores and gun lovers, has counterfeit all kinds of Kalash modifications for a long time ...

    M.T. Kalashnikov is a man of the 20th century legend; therefore, monuments and monuments must be placed not only in Moscow, but also in other cities that are symbolic for the famous gunsmith hi

    We were a family in the M.T. Kalashnikov Museum in 2012, the child really liked it. We wanted to go in 2015 in July, but the museum was closed for some reason. In general, I was in Izhevsk for the first time in 2003 and the museum was then located under a shopping center, I liked the exhibits more then, there were dummies of "golden" AKs, handmade carpets with embroidery on the theme of AK, knives, sabers, swords, etc. .P. For some reason, I did not see these gifts in a modern museum, but I would like to look at them. And the monument (from the word memory) is certainly a good thing, although I think that the museum named after him is already the best monument.
