AK vs AR?

The AK-47 is a selective-fire, gas-operated 7.62×39 mm rifle developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Design and development began in 1945 and in 1948, the rifle entered service with select units of the Soviet Army. In early 1949, it was fully adopted by all Soviet Armed Forces as well as most members of the Warsaw Pact. Even after almost 70 years, the AK and its many variants are still the most prolific rifles in the world. Their fame is due in part to their unwavering reliability in virtually any conditions, low manufacturing cost and ease of operation. It is estimated that one fifth of all firearms in use in the world today belong to the Kalashnikov family.

How Metro Pawn can Lessen your Work Load

All through human history, we have innovated and developed every manner of technology to assist us with one basic goal – to simplify the work that we do. From simple machines like the lever and the pulley that helped us lift and move that which we ourselves could not, to amazing modern machines that help us build skyscrapers or tunnel beneath the earth in what would once be reserved for tales of fiction. The toaster, the telephone and the toilet – everything that we take for granted in our everyday lives did not exist at some point.

Once most of the water was eliminated, the clothes would get hung outside to dry. Today, we can’t imagine laundry without our computer-controlled washers and dryers.
