    None of the above? I don't hunt, I have no interest in going on a rampage and I'm not paranoid about the government being out to get me, for the rest of the options, the AK-47 is overkill for the job. Other than maybe having fun firing one at a range, which I also don't do, I can't imagine a situation where I'd ever feel the need to own, carry or handle an AK-47.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    They don't make much better for deer hunting than one of those.

    You could always use it as a coffee stir, shovel, boat paddle.

    So many other inventive things an AK is useful for.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If you broke it down into parts, why, it would have almost limitless uses!

    Hell you may be able to make into a pocket AK.

    Those wheels are a turnin.

    Incorrect choice! You are now a Zombie.

    Remember that Zombies only stay down with head shots. A full auto AK is not the best tool for that especially in urban areas where zombies get up close. An accurate pistol where round size isn't that important is far more useful in fending off zombie attacks.

    I would like to know why "zombie invasion" is not a poll choice when clearly there were other comical choices like shooting at police.

    Sure, if the Zombies are nice enough to come at you one at a time, a pistol is better. But they don't. They come in hordes. A fully automatic weapon is far more useful when a horde is approaching because you can slow down many of them and escape to safer territory.

    You would do a bang up job stopping one Zombie for good with your pistol, but I'd rather seek safer territory, perhaps a tree since Zombies can't climb trees for ****, and fire down upon the lot of 'em from above.

    Exactly. I know I'm much more likely to fend off some Zombies than get into a shootout with cops.
