Couldn't find the right thread for this, so I will post it here and maybe you all can get it going. Now that kameltoe has dropped some bombs on Syria, I decided to catch up on what's really going on with the warring factions in the middle east. I watched some excellent footage on u-tube, (search: Vice on HBO.) I noticed something interesting in that these ISIS thugs are sporting not only AK's but AR's as well. These mother-fuggers are ruthless as they want to take over the whole fu@kin world. They basically own the top half of Iraq and regardless of what the lying media says, are still going strong. Check out this pic of a couple of regular Iraqi dudes who are fighting against ISIS to defend their turf. The one guy looks like he put on his costco leather jacket as he left the gym to show up for some part time enemy blasting. The other dude looks like he is a plumber in his day job and joins in as well. Perhaps this their way of "getting in some range time". fu%king bizarre.

My father was an officer during war with Korea.. I guess it's a loyalty issue, or perhaps out of allegiance to our country. Either way, I have no beef with anyone having a commie inspired firearm, I am just still on the fence with it.

I can understand that.

My father was shot down when he was over in Vietnam, when I loaned him an SKS he joke but that might’ve been the one used to shoot him down, but he had no issue with borrowing it and using it.

I sort of feel it is like “not wanting to buy any German made product if you had a relative who fought in Europe during World War II”.

If we were talking more current events how much of the stuff that you purchase is made in China.

Another thing to consider is there are quite a few American made AK’s nowadays.

Just some thoughts.

I served in the US military for 25 years, and I have no problems owning a Kalashnikov!

Speaking of which, the AK-47 was only accepted by the Soviet military in 1949, a year before the Korean War started, and the DPRK didn't ally with the Soviet Union until after the Korean War ended in 1953.

The majority of Soviet military aid was from surplus stocks, and North Korea was no exception. PPSH submachine guns made up the large bulk of firearms aid, as the Soviet's had a large supply of them from WW2 plus ammo, parts, etc.

Plus, the Soviet military itself did not start issuing the AK-47 in large numbers to its own units until 1956, three years later. They certainly weren't going to give the North Koreans a brand new assault rifle when they couldn't supply them to their own soldiers!

Finally, the Type 58 assault rifle--North Korea's version of the AK-47--didn't go into production until 1958, so there is zero chance your father ever encountered one while fighting in Korea.

By the way, my father served as a combat engineer during that conflict. In fact, he received his battlefield commission there!
