    if we can honor the creator of dynamite by lauding his "Nobel" prize every single year........ surely we can honor the creator of the most popular peace deliverer in history

    Yeah...a shame. A lot more science and engineering goes into designing firearms than most people think.

    The AK is a nice piece of engineering for it's intended use...cheap, easy to produce, extremely durable, idiot simple to operate and in the right hands very effective <300 meters with a human size target.

    That said...for my purposes it's a piece of crap. The action feels sloppy, it's difficult to mount a scope and the ammo sucks.

    It's all in the eye of the beholder I suppose. :)
