"Although honoured by the state, Kalashnikov made little money from his gun. He once said he would have been better off designing a lawn mower." Confused

"...one of 18 children…" Shocked

"He received many state honours, including the Order of Lenin and the Hero of Socialist Labour." Cool

R.I.P. Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov

Warm regards,

Killed more people than any other firearm in history, let's all rejoice that fact!

Pathetic.

Ensured the Soviet people would not be slaughtered by outside invaders ever again. Not pathetic at all.

"AK-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every mofo in the room, accept no substitutes." Samuel L. Jackson's character, Ordell Robbie in "Jackie Brown"
[b]I am not condoning violence, but it was a great line from one of my favorite movies.
