LOL, well stated.
There is a stalwart contingent of M16 haters on FR, but they're generally cordial.
The Kalashnikov is a remarkable fighting rifle, but it's not optimized for well trained, disciplined armies.
After over forty years, the M16 series has cemented its place as the most versatile, flexible, reliable and lethal individual weapons system in recent history.
Agreed the AK-47 is not the best choice for a well trained army it;is however an utterly reliable weapon if given even the most rudimentary of care, ie cleaning/oiling stored in a clean dry place .
If western civilization has a melt down the rifle I would first grad would one of the many AK variants.
