Hunting (small game)
Hunting (large game)
Carrying with you for self-defense
Keeping in the home for self-defense
A fun day at the shooting range
Fending off the police/feds in a shootout
Killing as many people as possible before you are stopped
The big majority of Americans, who are comparatively well off, have developed an ability to have enclaves of people living in the greatest misery without almost noticing them.

While playing Counter Strike and a head appears inside my AK's Crosshiar , He'll be historyIn Which Case Would You Rather Have an AK-47?
Hunting (small game) -the 7.62x39 is too big a round, destroys the meat
Hunting (large game) -the 7.62x39 is too anemic a round for large game
Carrying with you for self-defense -not the best platform but works well in cqb, especially the short stock versions, however if we are talking concealed, the pistol
Keeping in the home for self-defense again a decent choice but not the best
A fun day at the shooting range there are few things more fun.,......
Fending off the police/feds in a shootout not the best choice, for the same reason that hunting large game. the 7.62x39 is too anemic and too large a round to penetrate IIIa armor and some level II armor.
Killing as many people as possible before you are stopped not the best choice do to the ergonomics of the reload, its sights and its lack of concealability
I didn't answer your poll because it was dumb and highly suggestive, demonstrating ignorance and hoplopobic tendencies..... what is your point here?

Off the top of my head...
I'd say it'd be better for either of the game as I imagine it'd be more advantageous than the hand gun.
I would rather shoot it at the range, just cause it'd be rather fun to shoot something like that I guess.
You down with TPP?
I picked all of the above because I'm personally not a big fan of handguns, so I'd rather the rifle.
Personally, I'd use different guns for all of the options given.
I would prefer the handgun if I was robbing a liquor store or carjacking someone.
I'd prefer the AK if I was fending off a zombie invasion.
Why weren't these given as poll options?
AK's too beasty for small-game hunting. I prefer being able to eat what I kill. 9mm pistol is still a bit too much, but it's better. I'd prefer something in the .22LR range.
It's also a bit heavy and inconvenient for carrying on your daily rounds. Ever try getting into and out of your car with a rifle on a sling? The pistol's ideal here.
For the options given, it's the better choice on every other category.
On the other hand, if I wanted to kill people indiscriminately, and kill as many as possible before being stopped... you really don't want firearms at all. Situations like that, you're much better off with explosives.
An old fashioned 10 gallon gasoline can, filled with large construction nails and then half-filled with gasoline, is a much better bet. It's not difficult to convert any number of small consumer electronics into timed or remote detonators, but your best bet is probably battery-powered alarm clocks or prepaid cellphones.
The cellphones are your best bet, since you have much more control over the timing. Just buy eleven phones and build ten bombs.
