The Dunhams by me was always within a dollar of Walmarts priced on ammo. Well, that's when my Walmart HAD ammo.

I kind of like those PSL's. Wonder what a SVD goes for these days? They were pretty expensive back in the 80's already.

Ditto, but mostly steel shot, and no handgun ammo of any kind .

1) I love guns

2) they are the most reliable rifles out there

3) s*** is gonna hit the fan eventually.

5) love the iconic look. No one can mistake that silhouette.

I bought AK clones from friends when they made me deals to good to pass up, or when Ii found a basket case in a shop that needed some hardcore cleaning, and paint removal and refinishing. Hung on to some that were better shooters than others.

Becauise an AK will function under adverse conditions and an AR will likely jam if you sneeze on it!

Bought the only one I've ever owned back in the early 90's. Norinco. It was inexpensive, and back then the ammo was very enexpensive. I think it was around $2 for 20rds. I bought a case of practice rounds. (Plastic bullets) for hardly nothing. Darn good fun.
Does anyone else remember the plastic bullets?
