If I remember correctly, weren't you the member who said you were a BEGINNER with guns and couldn't lock your Security System on your PT111?

I highly recommend you take some basic classes offered by the NRA or your local range. In other words, hold off on the AK purchase.

I have that ak 47 it is a wasr-10 romanain version. Nice gun and fun to shoot the down side is unless you shoot fmj all the time it will jam on you. But all in all a very fun weapon. What version are you looking at?

I am!!! i've shot before, but i just made my own firearm purchase. in that regard i am a beginner! i learned the basics from my ex-girlfriends dad (who has been in the FBI for over 10 years). i had never used a Taurus before so i was still getting use to the gun. but i have taken the time to get familiar with it. if i don't know anything else, i definitely know SAFETY SAFETY SAFETY!! i sincerely thank you for your concern!!!!


God Bless

+1 NYPD you need a lot of training before you tackle military weapons this is not fun and games.
I've taken guns away from people that I was training because they could/would not follow basic instructions. please take a class or find some one competent to teach you to be safe and understand your basic gun safety rules. hint #1 if they show up with beer leave.... ahh the slide lock is a basic part of every auto if you can't identify this part then your training is not what you think it is. please refere to the above paragraph.

You know something weird, the AK-47 makes a distinctive sound when fired that no other gun makes. I don't care how many 7.62mm's I listen to... and I can do it blindfolded... I can tell you which one is the AK-47.... brings back some memories... lol

MP3 you are correct!!! i just got back from shooting my wasr10 romanian AK47 and there was nothing out there that sounded like it. I LOVE IT! for those that were concerned about my newbie skills i made sure to ask the range master for instruction. i learned a lot. i cleaned it before i went, put about 130 rounds through it with no problems! ENOUGH ABOUT AK'S! this is a taurus forum. lol, i also shot my pt111 pro for the first time! no recoil, accurate, NO JAMS!!! i put about 140 rounds through it. my friends were jealous because they liked my guns better!! lol

That is true that this is a Taurus forum but many of us do have and enjoy other firearms. Thats the reason for the Other Long Arms and Other Handguns sections.

Besides, as much as Taurus has for a selection there isn't anything I'd pick for a first choice for a serious bad times gun. For that I'd rather have something like an AR or an AK. Now if Taurus would start making an AR or an AK life would get interesting....
