The thing that I noticed in that video is at the 2:15 or 2:16 mark the gun fires without the operator pressing the trigger. That's kind of scary! I don't know if its a jammed round that gets cooked off or what.
As for me, I have never shot either an AR or an AK, but I am buying an AK within the next two weeks. I have selected the one I want, and am waiting for a check for the funds that I should receive this week. There is a gun show near me in two weeks and if I don't find something there for a better price than I am going to order the AK from an online store.
My reason for selecting the AK was the fact that I have heard a lot of coments about AR's needing someone with gun smithing skills to keep them running. I don't see a need to be making 600 yard head shots and I doubt I could if I needed to.
I am placing reliablity higher than accuaracy for my needs. Also the AK is going to be priced a little lower.I'll have to bulk order the 7.63x39 ammo since it's hard to find here but I can get it cheap enough to really stockpile it.
The AK/ammo might be a little heavier but my plan A is to bunker in place anyways. I don't see the logic of stockpiling thousands of dollars in food, ammo, and water, then leaving it all and walking out with 50 pounds of what I think I need most. There may be situations that require that but if it comes to that is 10 pounds difference if ammo really going to gain you more than a day or two anyways?
