    Check out my new toy

    Well, its new to me anyway. I just picked it up yesterday. I met up with a deaf friend of mine and went to a buddy of his, also deaf, who is an FFL and has land where we could shoot.

    We toyed around with this AK, an AR15, and my .22. When we left I handed my buddy $400 and he handed me my new gun and 3 mags.

    It shoots great, nice and loud. I got bit when chambering a round and also put my left thumb in just the right place and now I have a burn mark that looks exactly like the banding around the grip.

    The only bad thing about yesterday is I was showing my 9 yo Daughter how to shoot my .40 handgun and just before she pulled the trigger she relaxed her arms and then got hit in the forehead with my handgun. *Proud Daddy moment* she didn't cry and when she handed me my handgun back it was pointed downrange the whole time. She also said that she wasn't going to let that stop her from shooting.

    Nice AK, and I hope your daughter does keep shooting

    Nice looking AK, too bad about your little girl. She sounds pretty tough though.

    The only difference between a man and a boy is the price of his toys.

    Nice toy, by the way...

    An AK and 3 mags for $400...thats a steal. Nice.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Don't forget the 300 or so rounds I got to shoot through it but didn't have to buy. He wanted one last fling with her before selling her to me.

    I'll post a video of my Daughter's first shoot, on my Remington Nylon 66, later on in another thread.

    It's OK, let it out. You are in a safe place here.

    She fires real nice and the trigger action is smooth. I forgot to video me doing some rapid fire in to a pond, that really made me smile big.

    Here's the trooper, this was prior to the rear sights of my handgun popping her in the head.
