    I have mixed feelings. I obviously think this sucks. At the same time, with all the things happening in the Ukraine right now, I do wonder if there really is a sinister intent or instead the AKs got swept up in sweeping trade restrictions.

    I think it would be wise for the gun supporting media not to go hod wild over this at the moment. It seems prudent to impose more severe trade restrictions on Russia given their behavior in the Ukraine, even if it means we can't get cheaper Russkie ammo and Russian made AKs.

    I own a Romanian AK. I personally am willing to spend more on 7.62x39 ammo from non-Russian sources if that means doing so will cause a little grief to Putin and his thugs. In fact, I'm going to do that anyway. Love my AK, but the thought of my hard earned dollars going to Russia makes my stomach turn this morning.
