looks like the instructor had full control of the situation. since the AK doesn't have allot of recoil, there would be no problem for a child to fire one. the short stock of the AK makes it ideal for kids.

Darwinism should have been in play here. Half of the toothless spectators should have been wiped out. Only the variance of "chaos theory" can account for their survival. :neutral: :roll: I'm joking, I'm sure they all have teeth :smile:

That was a little over the top. Those retards are what give the anti-gun idiots more ammunition to gripe about.

What the heck?! Judging by the name of the video, I figured it was going to be a REAL small child, not some kid that looks 12 years old. That kid is seriously NOT recoil hardened yet. At his age I had already shot a full auto M14. Course I only got like 3-4 shots off before the muzzle was at a 45 degree angle. :shock:

I was thinking the same thing (lower range).

On that note I was at KC standing about 20 feet away from the mini gun(s) that killed that little girl in 1995. Basically what happened was the gun generated so much recoil that it kicked back and the mount crushed her head, the result of a lack of sand bags on the tripod. Kid's have no place around guns like these. The sad thing is in the video they were laughing it up. :neutral:

You OBVIOUSLY have never fired a fully automatic 7.62x39 AK47...




Notice the INSANE recoil.

I wouldn't call that insane recoil. Try a Select fire M14.

When I was the size of that kid in the video I could empty a magazine from my uncle's Thompson without a problem. I couldn't empty the mag on our AK until I was about 15. That kid has very little shooting experience. Not the right way to start him out.


Blanco, I have never played with a class three folder, I have to say you did a damn good job on that second clip.

The M14 is a BEAST on full-auto. You need a wookie sized frame to control it.

I'm 5'11 and 220, no giant mind you, but it threw me around like I was nothing.

Relatively speaking the 7.62x39 is mild.

he'll the first gun my father ever bought be was a Sears 12 gauge single shot, when i was 10. hell i've let a 12 year old girl fire my AK with no problems and she loved it more that here fathers 10/22.

i see no problems with letting small children handle any firearm that they are capable of wielding, as long as they are under responsible adult supervision, and know firearms safety.
