The place I work is very open discussion on most things..........Hell my infidel shirt gets regular wear in the office. My boss knows I collect ak's and he owns a Norinco SKS and a 357 Magnum. One of the other guys I work with has a decent collection but they've really stuck to giving me crap about collecting AK's mostly terrorist jokes......So I thought I'd ask the community. If I started collecting Ar's would that be any better?

Invite them over to shoot your AKs, they will go from calling you a "terrorist" to asking you were to buy a good AK

AK = terrorist

AR = rignt wing extremist

It doesn't matter. The sheeple and libs will find something to call all gun owners.

Now this hits the nail on the head. You really need to get both. That way, depending on the scenario, you will fit right in!

Yes..........TERRORIST!!!!!!!




Now for the correct answer: collect both!

Even if you collected AR's you're a terrorist in the eyes of the media

Negative.

The real way to stop the jokes or turn it back on them is educate them in the Path of Kalashnikov at the range. I have had dozens and have taken a lot of coworkers out for a "wisen up" in the last two decades of AK ownership. All I get now is the "if the SHTF I am coming to your house" sillyness.

Well, I am just the OPPOSITE of you. Although I am U.S. military retired and, yes, a Vietnam-era vet, I DO NOT discuss anything with the people I work with. As a prof. in a small, ultra-liberal univerisity, telling people how many weapons I own would NOT go over very well. I was only hired here because I have a very good technical background and am willing to work for a low, liberal arts salary. I only did that because it is my hometown and I had a mother with Alzheimer's and diabetes to take care of.

All MY coworkers want to talk about is how wonderful Barry Soetoro is and how great socialism will be when Barry gets it all implemented.

I don't know what you do but I would be tempted to trade you jobs/coworkers.

My bother in law has AK's, I call him a terrorist.

He don't give a shit.

Your BIG mistake is talking to everyone about all your guns. You can talk about guns to about everyone without telling them what you own.

That information is none of their business. Close friends should maybe know, that's about it. If they see one on range outing, fine. They don't need to know about the entire contents of your safe.

In short, it's not what kind of guns you have, it's that you need to learn to keep to yourself what you have and you won't have to worry about it.

Or they'll say "what the hell is the point of a semi-auto AK?"

Uhh... because they're guns?


All guns are inherrently more cool than anything not a gun. That 60", $2500 TV the one guy in the office always brags about during football season? Yeah, it's cool, sure. But it's not as cool as even a $50 Lorcin. Why? Because the TV can't shoot anything, that's why.

It doesn't matter if you collect videographic evidence of your sexual conquests of Brazilian bikini model twins... the guy with the AK collection is still cooler. That's just the way it is.

No worries there. Both guys are close friends of mine. I've been friends with my boss since 07.

Roger that. with .mil experience, I was used to AR's and thought AK's were for commies too. Bought my first one and now regret having spent as much on AR's as I had. Think of all the cool mods and all the 7.62x39 I could have bought for the price of ONE nice AR.

I had a long time friend of mine ask me if I was a terrorist when he saw my AK. WTF? I used to shoot .22's with the guy when we were younger. I guess he grew up and went lib on me.

Your friends are right. They are terrorist guns. Send them to me for proper disposal of Soviet garbage.

Have it.

Shoot them as well as an ar.....or hunt with one. Then the jokes stop.

Don't tell your co-workers about your vast collection of firearms.

No need to lie about "guns", but full disclosure of what you've got in any detail is not wise in my opinion for a modern work environment where unemployment is where its at and its really damn hard to find a decent paying job.

Nothing good can come from coworkers knowing about your gun collection.

The older I get, the less I talk about my guns with other people, or even admit I have any. Not that I am ashamed, its just more of a "none of your fucking business" type of attitude. When SHTF, I don't want everyone in the neighborhood knowing ole Rosenrot is stacked full of supplies.
Link Posted: 9/14/2010 9:59:00 AM EDT
Everyone I work with thinks I am a liberal and a pacifist, and I plan to keep it that way. No one needs to know about my stash.
