Mikhail Kalashnikov and the AK-47

from: http://www.downrange.tv/blog/mikhail-kalashnikov-and-the-ak-47/26904/

It’s been said that the history of weapons is indeed the history of the world. Maybe a bit of an overstatement, but certainly true in the case of the Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947, the AK-47. I’s a rifle that has quite literary reshaped the world. Mikhail Kalashnikov, whose work as a weapons designer for the Soviet Union is immortalized in the name of the world’s most popular firearm, has died at the age of 94.
