Why, oh why AK-47?! (strip 5/27)

Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

Why, oh why AK-47?! (strip 5/27)

Post by zaitcev » Wed May 28, 2003 5:11 am

I think every one who ever thought about it would know that an AK is not very suitable to clear the confined space. Even if we consider the AKSU (the short police version in 5.45mm caliber), it still has too much recoil, too much flash. It's not the last word in ergonomics either. For an (un)realistic comic, I would recommend H&K MP-5. It is light, compact, and offers exellect controllability.

On second thought, perhaps Tony, being evil as he is, unloaded a least favourite weapon on Greg, just so that other WalMart shoppers would point fingers and say: "Look at this dork... he's hauling an AK!". The item probably has a plywood stock!

Myself, I'd use the MP5-SD model. The integral sound suppression allows for maximum stealth. No one can run from what they don't hear. Also, it would be relatively effective despite the lower caliber rounds and suppression tech, due to the lack of body armor of most Wal Mart employees and customers.

I'll try to keep that in mind for the next time I need to "clear the confined space" with an "exellect controllability".

Personally I'd just stick with a simple 9mm. It simple, yet it gets the point across.
But I must say, Rorschach has an interesting theory on the matter. But I think Samuel L. Jackson changed his mind during the Clone Wars.

An AK can certainly hold up to the rigors encountered, well, anywhere, you can drop it in the mud, pee on it, run it in the dishwasher, and it'll still shoot, and who knows WHATS going to be thrown at you at Wal-Mart...

If you've got people peeing on your gun while you're shooting, there's certainly something else wrong with the situation at hand.

Thats not the point, the point is to sound like a total badass.

Read what I wrote again, think about it for 10 seconds. Take 10 seconds to rest. Try to comprehend it for 10 more seconds.
