I voiced my praise for the AK in a CQB role. For defense at close range, it is probably the best option.
But: ( Slightly off thread, - sorry.)
If the choice were for a rifle that would go to the range a lot, be used in competition ( 3 gun etc,) be a joy to own, accurate as a semi can be made, is made to take scopes, red dot sights and other accesories, plus can be easily and adequatly pressed into general rifle service for defense, then I think that a good AR is probably the better choice.
No, I'm not flip flopping.
For those who have the money, why not one of each ?
Plus a good 7.62 x 51 battle rifle of course. ;)
If you have to fight, do not fear death.
We will all die one day, so fight skillfully and bravely!
And if it is to be that you die, then at least go to God proudly.
Meet him as the proud warrior that you once were, and not as a sniveling coward.
Nobody lives forever.
