Legit Reviews armed with an AK47 meets 17 inch KDS Monitor

Post by Apoptosis » Tue Oct 18, 2005 8:00 pm

This afternoon my internet was down and since my office phone is VOIP and my cell phone doesn't work at home I took the afternoon off. Grabbed some weapons (AK's, SKS's, H&k's, Sig's, AR's) and got my neighbor to donate an old 17" monitor to the cause.

Shooting off 30 rounds from the hip as fast as i could:

Not a bad way to burn off some steam after a long day of nothing going right.

Nice!

I absolutely HATE KDS monitors! I've seen 5 go bad in a matter of 2 years!! 2 were my brothers and 3 were my friends. All got replaced, but went to hell. You should see my friends latest, the screen is green! :shock:

I shot a pistol on a range once..but thats far as my experience with guns goes. that ak must have a strong feedback or whatever its called. cause even apistol left my hands sore.

Its called recoil..... The AK is a cheap, massed produced wonder...... the thing should be an absolute piece of crap (the ones made is some countries are) but it is probably the most widely used assault rifle in the world.

it's also one of the most accurate guns around. that's why it's still in use... it's cheap to build and it's accurate (in one/two round bursts). also, correct me if i'm wrong, but aren't the rounds said to easily pierce kevlar?

its not very accurate. The Sviet doctrine was to beat us with overwhelming force and mass production.... to accomplish that they had to forego quality. There are probably 10-15 to 1 ratio of AKs to M16s or M4s.... which is why you see them all over the world.
Its a 7.62 round, so it depends on the kevlar and how thick it is. but standard ammo, no, it should not penetrate kevlar.
I remember back at FT Bragg, in the museum, they have a helmet a soldier was wearing, he was shot in the head from about 100M, and the round is still stuck in the helmet.... I'm sure he had one hellof a headache, but he survived.

hm... i learned in firearms training and in that history channel show about guns that the ak-47 was a really deadly gun because 1, there are so many of them, and 2, they're accurate up to one or two round bursts. after that, their recoil gets the best of them.

I'll stick with my M1 grand, if I can see it, its toast.

what range do you go to? dont see anything familar in the images. I go to stl bench rest club in wright city with my dad, well worth the 150 or so a year to join. 600 yrd lanes, trap area, pistol ranges.. got into IDPA shoots thanks to my dad, putting 500-600 rounds though a 45acp in a days shoot, real good way to blow off steam.

HAHA, that is awesome!!!
We have a BUNCH of rifles and pistols at my house and we live way back in the woods and my dad built a full sized (100m) firing range; it's pretty fun.
We prettymuch only have "hunting style" guns though, no cool army stuff like you have :P

Where is wright city is this club? Since I live there now, I need to know where these places are! :) On a side note, there is an indoor archery range just down the road from my house.

there site -> http://www.shootingstl.com/home.htm

hella nice range.

Edit.

looks like that jumped the yearly to 200, still not bad if you compare to what it cost to go to bush wildlife and shoot for a hour couple times a year. and here you can setup a camper if you want.

haha... ask Justin about the one time I took him shooting...

I took a regular red potato and threw it out about 25-30 yards and loaded the SKS and from the hip on the FIRST shot nailed the potato. Couldn't believe it because I didn't think i'd hit it on the first shot.

My next "gun" project is putting together my own AR-15. Still thinking on what size bullet I want it to shoot, so I haven't gotten far. How much did it cost to put your AR together?
