    Default Don't blame the designer,

    ...blame the rogues using it.

    American soldiers threw away their M16s and pick up their foe's AK47 in Vietnam. LOL

    The rogues are smart enough to choose a more effective weapon. If the M16 were more effective, most likely they would hv chosen it.

    They had their reasons .. something which you failed to consider or mention here. Quotes out of context usually smack back to the person using it ...

    the early M16 designs were not as robust or reliable...although slightly more accurate...when working. (wiki)

    As a Singaporean, over here, I open fire with 5 types of guns so far. But never touch a AK before. Maybe got chance, go USA to try it out?
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    I have touched (AK47) but not fired one, in Safti. Strip it too.

    AR-15 is good. Just clean it.

    H&K 416 and H&K MP5 are good.

    There are very good reasons why the early M16 is not reliable

    Vietnam has tourist sites for you to fire the AK rifle. Just pay for the rounds

    When I wore uniform, Air Farce issued me an Armalite too. Very nice because the forward assist button in m16 was always getting in the way.

    TS was referring to the designer of the AK47 rifle who said "It is painful for me to see when criminal elements of all kinds fire from my weapon."

    erm... actually don't be misled by the cyber personalities that people adopt when they participate in Internet forums.

    A guy can pretend to be a girl and vice versa. Plus limitless variations, just surf the various Internet scams.

    You're right to a certain extent.

    OTOH, sis Shizuma knows her stuff

    No need go far. Vietnam Cuchi tunnel have some for you to try. Just pay some $ and you get a few rounds of bullets to shoot at static target. No training required. No ear plugs too.
