I knew nothing about them at all until my FFL sold me
a mint Polish 1955 M44. I got a good deal with extra ammo,
accessories, etc. I was unimpressed. My attitude was
"ennhh, I'll shoot a mag, clean it, and put it in my
collection" . I went to the range with it, and had a
blast with it. 85 plus rounds, and a blue shoulder later,
I was hooked. There's an insane fun factor.
I guess it also helps if you appreciate milsurps
and are somewhat of a war historian...
