HD ak47

1590 1
I've heard alot about people using ar15s for home defense, but not much on the ak. Since they're really reliable wouldn't they be a good choice as well or would the stigma behind the name hurt you if you had to use it . I know it's got more" stopping power" and the ammo for7.62 is cheaper so you can practice more and be more proficient as well. What's your take on the ak for home defense and any ammo youwould recommend for it. thanks mas,And I love the work you do.

The problem with the AK47 format for home defense lies not so much in its configuration as with its usual cartridge. The 7.62 X 39 is an extremely penetrative cartridge, and a miss escaping to where it can hurt an innocent bystander is a real concern.
