A couple of weeks ago, I shot one for the first time. We had several guns, target shooting. I shot the ak47 about five times and three times I double tapped it. The two shots sounded like a full auto. I don't know what I was doing wrong? The other person had no problem with single shot. I guess I had a light trigger pull and recoil caused me to double pull?

Also, the site plain is so low, With the stock into my shoulder, I had to crank my head over about 90 degrees trying to line up the sites. Am I doing something wrong?

I'm not sure I posted this on the correct forum? Thanks

You'll get a much better response if you post this in the right forum. I'd suggest: The Art of the Rifle: Semi-automatics.

Welcome to The Firing Line.
A gunfight is not the time to learn new skills.

If you ever have a real need for more than a couple of magazines, your problem is not a shortage of magazines. It's a shortage of people on your side of the argument. -- Art Eatman
