Which genius came up with the idea hiring an intimidating looking soldier-security guard standing in full view of the establishment!

Very inviting %)

Word on the street is they have the best burger in town. Word on the street is also that it's quite expensive.

Being a firearms collector (in the US), I would rather have a AK47 (actually an AK74 is better) than an M16 or M4. Stoner/Armalite screwed up when he designed the M-16/AR15 and had dirty gas blow back in the chamber.(there is a reason for that foreward assist lever) Later Armalite came out with the vastly superior AR-18, but the US military had already blown their money on the POS M-16.

I've had two AR-16s, two AR-180s and used to rebuild/build AK-47s that were brought into America as parts "kits." The AR-16s would jam about every 100 rounds during rapid-fire and I worked them over really well, the AR-180s would get smoking hot and never jam and I've never had a AK-47, AK74 jam. Attached is a picture of one AK I built from parts. Shitty AK47, I think not. Also attached is a pic of my Browning 1919A4 that I had remanufactured into semi-auto.

I would 100% agree about the reliability of the AK47 and derivatives, over M16's and Armalites. I guess that is why it has become the most copied assault rifle in the world. Then again the Chinese adopting the Type 56, might have a lot to do with it, lol
The SS109 improved the effectiveness of the 5.56 m/m but obviously it did nothing to improve functioning.

Neither, if we do not like the look of someone trying to get into a bar here, we just tell them the house rule is that they must clap their hands twice to be allowed in.

They then just walk off, Wiganers will not put there pie down just to go into a bar.

Fair-Game: No, I have my collection stashed in America since it is illegal for me to own firearms in Cambo. (knives, yes, bull whips yes, guns, no.) Its money in the bank as they do nothing but go up in price. I also have 35,000 rounds of ammo stashed and that's additional money in the bank. I'm hoping that the American people finally get tired of the Attorneys/judges/bar associations that are running America into the ground and making it a police state, and do like the Declaration of Independence states and do our "Duty." (read it and you will understand) This is all before I get to old to participate or am dead.

Before I came to Cambo I thinned out my collection down to 60 firearms. One military rifle I bought 20 years ago for $30. I sold for $800. and two of near the same I also bought for $30. and sold for $700 each. I have rare ammo I bought for about $.26 a round is now selling for $2. to $3. a round. Much better than stocks and bonds that would make a good fire in a crisis or a door stop like a brick of gold. With a functional weapon you can get food, booze, gold, etc. Which would you rather have if someone came to pillage you and your house, rape your wife, children, A gun or stocks, bonds, gold?
