Thanks for Travis Haley's transition video, Mosin. His videos always are great.

however, I'll say that the offset weaver stance is out dated unless you're just target shooting.

in a "gun fight" you want to square up to your target so you have more maneuverability, you can shift left/right, Forward/reverse as needed. try being mobile while shooting from the weaver stance. Plus, if you're with the military or police...or you're just one of those crazy guys ready for the Russians to invade over the N pole... If you're wearing body armor of any kind, the protection is designed to be "square on" to the chest/back, and turning yourself sideways into a weaver stance takes your body armor and moves it to the side, exposing your vulnerable sides to the direction the bullets are coming from.
I just learnt it from former members of spetznaz...maybe the best trained with the ak.I would show you how it looks like...maybe I didn't describe it well....

That's it!!!!....this is how you should hold/handel an AK.There are a couple of variations, but this is the basic position!!

NOT a weaver stance with feet front to back and the rifle across the front of your chest pointing wherever your shoulder is pointing.
And that's what I meant, but I'm not as good at explaining things as at showing them.If you meant so, then....man...you definitively know what you're talking about.I would suggest only a couple o variation...as It was showed to me....
