Well, i currently have a Smith and Wesson .38. i do not hunt and either gun would be just for the fun of shooting and of course homeland security. I see how the Ak would be more fun to shoot. But i am worried about how poorly made they are and if it will last me without too many problems.ducktapehero said:Well 1st we need to know a little more. What guns do you already own? Do you hunt? What do you plan to do with it. Shoot paper? Assuming you are just buying to play with I would suggest the AK as it would probably a lot more fun and 7.62x39 ammo is dirt cheap.
