Magazines are consumable items. If one breaks from use, replace it. Its a given that it will take abuse.

Okay, it's me..........the one with all the questions. And please excuse and politely correct any terminology I have wrong. It seems like he loaded the first round into the chamber by tilting the gun and pulling back the bolt with his left hand over the top of the gun. That just seems awkward. Is this how it is typically done with an AK?

It is proper technique when you're training to be fast and efficient. The idea is to rack the bolt with your support hand, not the trigger hand. This isn't hard to do with a pistol or AR but as you can see it's very difficult with the AK and it happens with every magazine swap since there is no bolt hold open latch that most other guns have. The guy in the video makes it look easy but it's not.

It's good that some understand the concept. It's not hard to tell who collects and who doesn't.

Why does everyone hate this kid so much? Because he might still live with his mom? Because his mags take a beating? Or is it because his proficiency at this one skill set short-d*cks all the tough guys who can't move as fast. I don't know if he can shoot, run fast or survive when SHTF. I don't care. That's not what his video was about.

With you running 22 posts in this thread alone I must agree. You can't get to the range and shoot, when you spend all of your time here.

So you're on the battlefield, and you've flung all your mags, feed lips first,

onto the rocks. I'm going to assume if the SHTF, or you're on a

battlefield somewhere, your LGS might be closed.


I'm just a little lost on where you're going to find replacements,

at that particular time, for your "abused consumable items"??

IMHO, all you internet commandos need to spend a week or

two in the field, simulating real survival conditions.

My money is on 98% of you either finding you've :

1-Amassed a load of gear which is too heavy and bulky

to tote.

2- Overlooked some critical item which is going to

derail your "10 year plan" in 48 hours.


Don't get me wrong, under the ideal conditions, this

kid would do well. Unfortunately, in fighting that intense,

he, and anyone with him, would have a very low survival rate,

anyway. So, what?; he'll be the best dead magazine flinger on the

battlefield?

Well said. Once again common sense proves it has a way of cutting through fantasy. I must admit I do agree with this kids assessment of "danger" in his, "Transition To Secondary"......Especially if he tried it standing under a ceiling fan.

When was the last time you went through any sort of class or had any practical instruction? Hell I've posted on this site while at the range and during classes. The wonders of technology

I don't nor have I ever implemented the 3 D's when discussing my shooting background which is a lot more than I can say about others.

Internet commandos? I prefer CIB holder or Combat Veteran .

While you're worried about what you'll be doing after the fight others will be bringing the fight to the opposition in order to come out on top. In my experience looking past a fight usually has bad consequences.

You're quite the multitasker.
