    more than semi auto. Simpler, easier to clean, supposedly more accurate, more reliable, and so on. I sold the only semi auto I had last year. If AKs become unavailable I'd like one before that time.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      AK's and SKS's are not a bad choice as long as the ammo is available. They clean easy, and take a lot of abuse. This book gives a good history of the design.

      Personally I have never had any use for a semi auto rifle, but that's just me.

      Trade always exists for the traders. Any time you hear businessmen debating "which policy is better for America," don’t bend over. -George Carlin-
