    The truth, all of it (OK, most).

    I own an AK and a Mosin, but not an AR. The bit about the 2x4 to load the Mosin was one of the best parts.

    Very funny!

    I have an AR coming, and a friend of mine has an AK. I like the reliability of the AK, but it dishes out a bit of a beating.

    I just got a Mosin. Pretty good shape. I spent 5 hours cleaning it and attempting to remove cosmoline.

    But yeah, that may have been one of the best posts, ever. lol
