Firearms Industry Sends Inventor of the AK47 a Birthday Card
Arsenal, Inc Sends M. T. Kalashnikov a Birthday Card & a Big Thank You
Las Vegas, NV –-(AmmoLand.com)- Recently Arsenal, Inc called upon the firearms industry to wish Mikail T. Kalashnikov (Inventor or the AK-47 and many other rifles) a happy 90th Birthday.
We did this by having people from through out the firearms industry sign individual birthday cards that would then be placed onto a 3ft X 4ft poster and delivered to Mr. Kalashnikov himself in Izhevsk, Russia.
The firearms industry’s response was amazing, more people than ever expected participated in this simple but impactful gesture from the American firearms community.
Arsenal, Inc as a company would like to say THANK YOU to the firearms industry for making this possible.
Mr. Kalashnikov was truly amazed by this gift and wished to express his extreme gratitude for the kind wishes on his Birthday.
His official Birthday is on November 10th and the poster was delivered to him personally at the Izhmash museum in Izhevsk on November 13th. When delivering the giant card, it was evident on his face of how amazed he was at the outpouring of support from the United States and he verbally expressed that to the Arsenal team in his native language of Russian.
Through the translator, the team from Arsenal was told of his gratitude for this amazing gift. After leaving the museum, the team was informed later on in the evening, of how a small argument started between the museum curator and Mr. Kalashnikov, the curator thought I would be appropriate for the card to stay there in the museum and Mr. Kalashnikov felt the best place would be at his personal residence. To date the winner of the argument is yet to be determined…
Again, on behalf of Arsenal, Inc, THANK YOU to everyone who participated and made this possible.
