Default my first WASR 10

I have been a gun enthusiast all my life and my focus has always been accuracy, if a rifle couldn't soot MOA or less I wasn't interested. But recently as I have begun to prepare for what maybe the coming insurrection and living in Maine where being able to see 100/150 yards is rare! The need for a bit more fire power became evident! I have been toying with a WASR 10 AK and having a blast (no pun intended) I did mount a scope on it for a while and managed 2" plus or minus groups and was delighted to do so! I have since switched to a "Red Dot" and again very impressed with the accuracy and ease of hitting targets out to 100 yards. I haven't' had the opportunity to try longer distances yet. Anyway I didn't mean blab so long and am attaching a couple of photos. http://s1194.photobucket.com/albums/aa373/pasquanel/Ak-47/?action=view&current=DSC02859.jpg#!oZZ2QQcurrentZZ http%3A%2F%2Fs1194.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Faa37 3%2Fpasquanel%2FAk-47%2F%3Faction%3Dview%26current%3DDSC02858.jpg

I always enjoy shooting my buddy's WASR10. It has been very reliable and plenty accurate for plinking.
