There's a video on YouTube where 3 Marines compare the AR-15 to the AK-47 (they like the AK-47). They also complain that 1. they don't teach Kentucky windage anymore and 2. female Corps members always win shooting competitions.

That's a forward mounted scout-style scope. Judging by the choice of scope, design of the bayonet, the muzzle brake, and the gas block, that rifle is likely to be a AK-74 variant. However unorthodox, the scout scope is very practical setup for an AK-pattern rifle, especially in a smaller caliber like.5.45mm Also, milsurp bayonets are awesome because they look cool, and they're often sold together with the rifle in the same package.

tl;dr Rifle is cool, scope is cool, dude's coat and mustache are cool, milsurp bayonet is awesome, sunglasses are awesome, the parrot is awesome, whole picture overall is badass

This is just a smash-stab-slash-buttstroke in the dark here, but I'd hazard a guess that you were a big fan of the Human/Lizard Loaf and were devastated when that entree was retired from MRE rotation, weren't you?

/A scope on an AK (you know, an ol' shake-rattle-roll-can't hit-the-broad-side-of-a-сарай-past-175-meters AK) is a waste of a scope.

CSB: a couple of weeks ago I did a local half marathon. At one point the course followed the edge of a small field on two sides, so there was a constant stream of runners along half of the perimeter of this field. As I said, the field was small, perhaps 300-400 yards on a side.

As I (along with a couple of hundred or more other runners) ran along the edge of the field, three or four fowl hunters let fly simultaneously in the center of the field from a blind that I hadn't seen until they opened fire. This really struck me as very poor judgment. Too many people, too close by for shooting IMHO.

I don't know if this is true or not, but when I was learning to shoot I was told that women were better shots than men (once they learned how) because women have proportionally smaller hearts and that makes it easier for them to keep the gun steady.

No, it's mostly that they haven't learned bad habits and have better fine motor coordination - steadier, yes, but steadier hands.

When I took a girlfriend and her son target shooting for her son's birthday (he turned 17), I suggested to her that she not wear her usual low cut top for that very reason.  She had awesome boobs that she didn't mind showing off, so it was a shame, but I got to play with them later that evening so it worked out.

I was wondering about the combination of assault rifle and parrot, myself.

I guess the bayonet is to stop the barrel when the kick from the AK sends it into the ceiling.

Speaking as a female hunter who just got her second white-tailed doe of the archery season, I hunt because deer are tasty and because my working husband doesn't have time to hunt.

$24 license + $30 worth of vacuum pack bags = 84lb of lean meat in my freezer that keeps us fed for an entire year. It makes good financial sense when the price of everything in the grocery store keeps going up.

Venison stew meat, add in some green beans I canned, add in some tomatoes I canned, add in some potatoes, carrots, and onions I grew, add in some homemade broth, and you have a pot of soup or stew. Serve on the side with some hot sourdough bread I made, and that's some good eats. The economy got me back in the kitchen doing things the way my mother and grandmother taught me. I'm saving money and healthier for it.

I don't hunt for sport, just to feed my family. I don't get a thrill in killing, but I am grateful for what the animal has provided me.
