tallen702: FTFA: "pointed an AK-47 at a cashier"

I seriously doubt someone pulled a Class-III firearm out to threaten a chicken joint minimum wage worker. Most people who can afford an AK47 probably wouldn't be found A) carrying it around in their car for no good reason and B) at some ghetto chicken joint in Memphis.

Now, if the article said WASR-10 or whatever, I'd be fine with it.


Gangsta-wannabes aren't known for their logic, reasoning, skills in math, or really, skills in general...but then again, neither are HoR members, either...so perhaps...no...not goin' there...this time.

And even then, it would probably be an AKM, as the AK-47 went out of production in '59, but the AKM is still going strong.
I don't get how people keep misidentifing AKMs as AK-47. The AKM has an obvious slant compensator on the barrel, and they are parkerized instead of blued. How hard is this, people?

Came here expecting this in the first couple comments. Seriously, where do these patriots get their old Soviet tech from?


Most of them aren't really Kalashnikovs; they are variants. Some are made here; some are made in the Croatia, Serbia, the Balkans, china, ect. The main difference being; a Kalashnikov is fully automatic, the variants are not.

I own a 76 year old Mosin Nagant with a hammer and sickle on it. Just because it was made in a communist country doesn't make it a inferior weapon. On the contrary; the mosin was used by some of the most famous snipers in the Second World War.

/ plus, when I got it, it only cost me $100, compaired to $1200 for a Mauser with a swastika on it or $1000 for a Springfield 1912.

Mr_Fabulous: Why isn't this thread about our favorite places for chicken wings?

It's lunch time, people. Talk about delicious wings, and where to find them. (Like, for example, the teriayaki-hot wings at Old Town Pub in Geneva, IL.)



Garlic Jim's Pizza has some pretty awesome wings....definitely better than Buffalo Wild Wings.

/Although they discontinued their garlic wings.
//Damn it so much.

Bird's Nest in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. Hot, BBQ, Teriyaki, or any combination. Plus great curly fries and cheap beer.

All over the damn place. The Soviets made a shiat-ton of them (as they did everything else in their military), and sold the designs to anybody with cash who hated America, then later just to anyone with cash. If you've seen the Sons of Guns show, you're seeing a business built (as far as I can tell)* on making brand new American made AKs.

*I know they do more than that, especially on the show, but that seems to be their core business.

It might be harder than you think.  I've no clue what a slant compensator is or what parkerized is.  I think blued means just oiled but I could easily be wrong about that.

OTOH, I have never had to identify a firearm nor would I even try beyond handgun, long gun and color.

BUT,  I can tell a '59 Chevy Impala from a '59 at a glance.

For those of you wondering how it would be possible to "pull out" an AK, I believe this altercation took place at the drive-thru.

And I can tell a '57 Les Paul from a '58. And east is east, and west is west, and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, it tastes much more like prunes than rhubarb does.

I think in this case it was the lack of freebies that pushed them over the edge.   There is a class of people who demand something for free should anyone in a restaurant ever make a mistake.  Suddenly their time becomes worth a lot of money....

Just to clear up a couple of misconceptions in this thread:

Jack Pirtles are not just in the ghetto. There is one walking distance from me.

Jack Pirtle sells fried chicken. Not the kind you dip in Bleu cheese.

West Memphis is not Memphis. It is not even in the same state.

Not a misconception:  Pirtles is freaking delicious. Puts KFC to shame. Be sure to get some bisquits and gravy.

They still make them new (probably not quite the same design though; I'm not an expert). One of my friends bought one last year. He's not looking forward to the NY stupid law where he's supposed to register it...

Remember the news thing where they published names and addresses of registered gun owners and then some of those houses got robbed? Yeah, not really a fan of public records that can be used like that (ie 'what you own' being public knowledge).

You are. It's basically a hard oxidized layer on the steel, for protection and a nice finish. It's not a coating like paint or Nitron, it's a process that actually changes the outside layer of steel.

MythDragon: /That's what it feels like to us 'gun nuts'


Not all of us. I'm pretty much over the pedantry that has come to surround a lot of the gun culture. As long as the mistake isn't too egregious I pretty much ignore it. In this case, while the writer isn't technically correct, they were close enough and the mistake doesn't really change the point they were trying to make. I knew what they were describing even with the error. I'm actually more annoyed at the pedants in most cases. For instance, the classic 'clip vs. magazine' argument. Unless your talking about the actual parts/assemblies where the right definition tends to be critical, mixing the two really isn't a big deal. If someone starts talking about 'AR clips' I know exactly what they are talking about, and the conversation moves forward. Getting snotty about it doesn't help.

/I will offer a correction if I feel the other person will be receptive to it, but it's generally just an FYI kinda thing.
//The exception to the rule is lawmakers. If you're going to be making laws, you'd better know what the f*ck you are talking about. The new bullshiat magazine law here in CO is a prime example of what happens when they don't.

Wouldn't this fact negate every gun-fetishist's argument that the possibility of a gun being in the home reduces crime?
