It’s GOOD To Be The King! – NSFW

 Kalashnikov imports banned by executive order

My first ‘assault weapon’ (military-styled semi-automatic rifle) was an MAK 90.  A Chi-com cheap export.

I’d good friends who knew I was morose about the impending Clinton Assault Weapons Ban, and knew I couldn’t even afford an SKS, so they gifted me one!

Nothing like the government telling Guffaw he cannot have something to get him riled up and make him want one!

I was never much of a rifleman, and didn’t really care about military-style stuff, but Bill Clinton pissed me off!  I wasn’t much of a fan of Chi-com imports (supporting the commies, and all), but it was a gift.  And it had a decent trigger and shot half-dollar-sized groups offhand @ 25 yards.  First thing someone did was to add standard furniture, removing the thumbhole stock. (which I was told later may have been some kind of rule violation)  And a sling and a number of very expensive (due to the impending legislation) magazines.  ($5.95 30-rounders for $33.00.  EACH!)

Of course, she was in the safe when it was taken.  Not on my list of the most missed of the missing guns.

Here it is 20 years later and the current president (a more dangerous version of the original bastard) drafts and signs an executive order banning further importation of AK-style rifles.  It’s good to be the king!

Now, of course, I want another one!

It’s the principle of the thing!

PS – Word on the ‘Net is there has been a run on AK-style rifles, history repeating itself.  Perhaps the Supreme Court will address this legislation-via-edict business and stop The President from making such pronouncements (?)

  1. Yep, significant run… But I still wouldn’t want one… 🙂

    • Beggars (or revolutionaries/freedom fighters) can’t be choosers.
      If someone legally gifted me one, I’d be obligated to keep it. I still have 4-30 rd mags in a E. German mag pouch here somewhere…

  2. Probably not something I’d have reloading materials for.

    • Me neither. I never reloaded rifle, anyway. But I did have a few cases I bought for Y2K that I sold to a pawn shop for cash a couple years ago (having no rifle for that caliber, anymore).
      I was better than not having any rifle…

  3. 10 years ago, when I became a gun dealer SKS rifles were 109 from my distributor. I just check my latest flier and SKS’s are 389. Wholesale. I’ve seen some at gun shows for over 500. Man,I should have bought a bunch of those cheap rifles.

    As for being a rifleman, that was my training in the Marines. Every Marine, from the lowest private, all the way up to the Commandant is first a rifleman. That’s why I need to practice my pistol work. I can shoot bulls eyes all day long with a rifle. If I could get my pistol skills to even come close, bulls eyes at 50 yards, I’d be a happy camper.
