It's a really great gun. I just wish there was no wars or shooting people.
AK-47's are much better than .22 Long Rifles (with 15 shots).
Face a good 600 pounder with a .22 Long Rifle, and you'll know what I mean.
I would love to get an AK-47 for my cart if I run into one. I just keep a simple .22 LR for small stuff....
Ugh. I'd go with a .45-70 for anything that big!
Sometimes I keep a .357 magnum on my utility cart while going through the land, but it seems like ANY time I need it, I just have my .22 long rifle which is always on the cart. LOL
600 pound hogs are NOT fun with a .22 long rifle!!!! The .357 would do so much better, but I'd much rather have an ak-47 for the job. Of course, there is always the perfect gun debate... But I run into so many critters out there... 90% of the critters are fine with a .22LR. 8% are questionable such as 100-150 pound hogs.
Now of course if I have my 12 gauge or .357 with me, I will only see mice, field rats, or possums. LOL. If I just have my .22 LR, then I drive up on a 600 pound hog.
There is no feeling like getting chased into a tree by a insanely ticked off hog. It's like 3 bullets left of 15.... Aim good.... pop... screech (and it gets madder).
Sad part is you have to kill those or else they will literally break through barn wood and eat your goats/sheep. I mean directly through the walls!
This is not me but these are like the hogs around here: (I'd guess about 350 pounds)
I thank God I never crossed paths with one of these:
They say that was 1100 pounds (from Arkansas)! I'd be in big trouble with that! One of those suckers will kill you in a heartbeat if they get you. If I saw one of those today, I'd go back for my 12 gauge, bring plenty of extra shells, and my .357 with plenty of extras.... Climb a tree near it, and start at it.
I'd MUCH rather have an AK-47 with 30 round clips for something like that.... Especially if it knocks over the tree you are in! The reliability, the rapid shots, would be nice.
People just don't understand how dangerous these things are.
The AK-47 I hate because of the use against people, as I hate all war. But I'd love to get one in the event I'd have to tangle with a 1000+ pounder (or even the 600 pounders).
One of my buddies said to me "There is no adrenaline like an angry hog coming at you, and I've been attacked by a bear"... (He use to live in CO)
