Well said….! At gun shows buyers are standing in line to pay premium prices for AKs made in Russia. OK, the war is over but the AK stands as a symbol for a philosophy, which is 100% opposite to American values of individual freedom. Sorry guys. You are jerks for enriching Soviet made anything. You will not see one of those symbols in my house or in my hands.


I really don’t understand Century’s ad and marketing campaign that glorifies the Soviet Union which murdered hundreds of millions of people through genocide of almost every flavor along with complete annihilation of liberty and freedom of the people they oppressed.

How sad that some “snowflakes” are are so easily offended. Maybe Bob can start a write in campaign for the label to be replaced with unicorns farting rainbows. I am happy to see affordable boat tail ammo.


So while Century Arms is focused on supplying affordable ammo for the U.S. market, our own government is hell bent on disarming us. True to form, the gun community continues to be their own worst enemy.
