View Full Version : Saiga AK, Gun Appreciation Day, girls and ammo

January 19, 2013, 11:11 PM

Today I finally sighted in my Saiga AK. Then I shot off hand at 200 yards again … with a better score since I could actually see the target since I did not have to compensate for the sight deviation off the bore sight.

Today was “Gun Appreciation Day” and it started out early morn with a huge gun show with very long lines to get in, but it was fraught with goodies, and well worth the wait. I bought ammo cheap again, found an AK/SKS sight adjustment tool, hence my rifle being sighted in today. I also found a real AK, metal five-shot magazine that I love. My 30 round mags are cool, but a pain in the you-know-what when I am just shooting for fun, shooting from sand bags or trying to nail precision shots like the 200 and/or 300 off hand shooting days!

I have 100 rounds of various makes through it now, and I will clean it tomorrow for the first time. This has been a fun week with my new AK … you always remember your First Love!

Guns, Girls, and ammo make for a great day!!!

That's a nice looking rifle. I never owned or have ever shot an AK, its something Id like to do one of these days.
I haven't been to any gun shows lately. Hope to catch one next weekend though.. Need to find some 7.7x58 jap ammo.

I don't do many gun shows myself, but yesterday was a good one. I was able to find some things that I needed without waiting for UPS!

Have some fun, spend some bucks, and support the gun businesses in these hard times of free men!
