I have a fondness for Soviet-era technology, especially the military stuff, because they're so damn bulletproof.

Have a look at this:

1A rusty Kalashnikov assault rifle, confiscated from pirates detained by German navy from frigate Rheinland-Pfalz in the Gulf of Aden off Somalia's coast on March 3, 2009, in this picture made available on March 4, 2009. The German navy detained nine people on March 3, 2009 after they tried to attack a German merchant ship, German media reported.

Very Water World type of feel to it!

This works in reverse, too. You gotta promote civility to get civility in return. :)

The weapon of the disenfranchised the world over who take arms to fight and topple unfair and corrupt governments! :chris:

The AK is a thing of beauty: function over form. :43:

^ I don't think the bayo is new; just more rust resistant. Hard chromed, right?

thats right, when all of the murdering scum bags are gone, we can all be nice to each other :)

until that happens however the reality is that people will always take it to the next level, you cant fight willingness to action with laws.

If the AK had been in the hands of a Somali pirate, just being at sea off and on for about a year would make a typical African AK look like that. I'm sure it was well worn being a Somali rifle, but salt spray will make a blued firearm look like hell in almost no time at all.

Im guessing the whole chamber, bolt, barrel and grouping are all chromed out, the modern day AK-Sleeper Rifle.

Ice Cube is so hard with that AK he has to star in 2 Disney films a year to keep from exploding with hard-ness.

He was the capturee, not the capturer.

That's funny, I haven't seen any stories of Somali pirates staging beheadings while screaming allahu akhbar....

Bad comparison. Very bad comparison.
