I had tried shooting my AK-47 (actually a Romanian model, WASR-somethingorother) on the 4th, during the fireworks, so nobody would notice -- but it wouldn't fire. The firing pin dimpled the bullets but no bang, so I gave up after the third try. But I field-stripped it the next day, and today went out shooting with a neighbor on BLM land. It worked like a sonuvabitch. Minimal kick. I think I hit about 9 out of 10 shots, aimed at a 55-gallon drum about 50 yards away. Very nice. I would probably have done even better without the margarita and two beers I had during lunch.
