I can’t believe I missed it!

Thanks to Sebastian, I’m reminded that 7/7/07 was the 60th Birthday of the good old “Automat Kalishnikov”, or as it’s commonly know, the AK47.

Considered by some to be the finest military assault rifle ever created, the AK has been involved in every major (and most of the minor) military conflict since Vietnam. It has fought for and against tyranny, and over the years has earned a well deserved reputation for absolute bomb-proof reliability in battle.

Happy 60th AK47!
