    And if you can, try get your order to be combined with someone else's. That way you pay less shipping. There's a WGCshop order every 4 or so months.

    Also, spend time checking out what gun you want. If someone you know has the gun or one like it see if you can use it for a day. Different guns suit different people, you might like a M14 but your puny little arms maybe suited to a AK47S or something. Most important are length, wieght, magazine release, and safety selector.

    well, by heavy I meant that different guns have different centres of gravity. On longer guns it's often putting more wieght on your foregrip hand so the gun feels alot heavier than it is. much like carrying a block of wood from the end rather than the middle.

    But yes, bullpups are best, AK's suck because they have fiddly mag release. I think it would awesome if I could make a mag release for my AK as simple as the F2000.

    Also, yes, I have an AK. And yes, I am in love with bullpup.

    Do you mean the korobov? Cos I agree. But it's not a AK bullpup. There isn't really any good ak bullpups. Only guns that are bullpups that use the ak mechinism. the swiss use one. The chinese use another.

    Also, mikey has said that old guns might be cool but modern guns are better designed.

    What its made from makes a huge difference too. I have a wood and steel G3A3 with a steel claw mount and scope, its without doubt my heaviest weapon. While my bolt action sniper rifle most of you have likely seen by now is my longest gun, but since its all cheap plastic its light enough to use one handed.

    I'd suggest a weapon you can reach past the barrel of, I can just do this with my G36K and this is very usefull for opening doors quietly (not kicking them in, as fun as that is) or any other time you might want to move something without lowering your weapon. Definatly more important indoors.

    However best thing to do would be to try other peoples guns for a bit and see what you like or dont like. (yay for obvious statements)
