Ok, I have ALWAYS thought the AK-47 to be far better than the m16. I love the AK because it is border line indestructible, i mean you can literally dunk in mud, water, sand, and run it over with a damn Hummer, chamber a round and shoot...i just don't see how that can be beat. So the AK has unsurpassed reliability and, I have no problems getting targets at 200 yards so it has decent range and accuracy. But lately I've been arguing with some people that say the M16 is WAY better and the AK is **** and the 7.62 cartridge is ****. Now thats just bullshit and they dont know what they're talking about. But i was thinking, the M16 HAS to be better than what i give it credit for cause just so damn popular. Now it definitely has better range and accuracy, but the 7.62x39 sure as hell is more powerful. And I was talking to my father about this (Dessert Storm Vet, ex-Special Forces, got a Bronze Star) and he said that he would have rather had the AK than the m16. Now I guess in the end it all comes down to preference, but if there are any CURRENT military members here who have maybe done a tour using the m16 can you please comment. Thanks or reading this long *** post, and thanks for any comments.
