I had an experience to use AK-47 for firing at Cuchi Tunnel during my Ho Chi Minh trip. However, the moment I reached the firing point, I was disappointed that many things (I wished I could do before I pulled the trigger) had been handled on my behalf. Firstly I never had the chance to hold or touch the real bullets after I had bought them; Secondly I also could not put any (10 in total) of the real bullets into the magazine; Thirdly, I also had no chance to cork the weapon... All these things were handled by a soldier who attended and stood next to me, and all I could do was just to aim and pull the trigger...

I did not fully enjoy the firing! Yes, on the other hand I also know the reason why they would not allow me to do many things by myself - I guess mainly was to make sure no mistakes were made before or after the firing - especially for people like me who do not know anything about AK-47 weapon... They surely need to take some safety precautions. Anyway, thanks for their concern.

When I got back to Singapore, sometimes when I recall the experience, I know deep in my heart that I love AK-47 a lot, especially the cool outlook! (The above picture was taken by my wife, who was so afraid while taking photo for me, as she said the firing sound was very loud!) By the way, do I look cool in the picture? )

Few weeks later, I was amazed to come across an AK-47 toy weapon in a toy shop, and of course I had to buy and keep it as one of my toys collection! He! He!
