First I'd like to thank all that posted to my prior thread about the Mini 14 vs AR15. I had just about decided to go with the Mini 14 but though twice about it due to its lack of replacement parts in a SHTF senario. Also I've looked into the 7.62x39 round and am impressed with many aspects. If steel cased it's cheaper than .223/5.56. I'm thinking of buying an AK47 this weekend and ordereding 6000 rounds for it at a cost of about $2000 for the both. I'm interested in you opinions before I take the plunge.
No doubt the AR15 can outshoot the AK47 but remember I'm looking at a true worst case, we are living in a third world country, SHTF senario. I'm considering the AK47 due to its brute force and reliability. Im not interested in tricking out my SHTF rifle with red dots and lights.
What are some of the pros and cons of the AK47 platform? Any make/model suggestions. My Local gun store has several from $600 to $900. I've found Wolf 124 grain HP for $230 @1000 free shipping. Thanks in advance for your time.
