Thank you for the welcome. The firearm I have in the photo was my military issue M-16 and was a pile of junk. as soon as I could I got my self an AK47 and carried it my entire 2 year tour. The old M-16 was so bad about jamming it turned out to be dangerous and one of my buds had one blow up in his hands. It almost killed him. I now have a AK47 that I am building and will in another 6 months have a weapon that will not only work right but will be the envies of all gun enthusiast. Of course I still have my trusty 30-30 leaver for hunting. My motto is stay armed and stay alive.
