Sorry Ferret... RIP Mikhail Kalashnikov.

Dang :frowning:

He was 94 and his health had been squiffy for years. Wasn’t surprised to hear it yesterday, but still a sad mention.

Naturally, people all over the world took to the comment boxes to blame him for the actions of evil people. Typical.

RIP, and a vodka toast to one of the greats.

The man only wanted to design a well engineered weapon to help protect his country. His notoriety stems from simply designing a weapon that was too well engineered. To think he wanted to be a poet as a child. RIP.

He said the world could blame nazi germany for the AK47 if they wanted a scapegoat. He wanted to design agricultural equipment.
