"I wanted to invent an engine that could run for ever. I could have developed a new train, had I stayed in the railway. It would have looked like the AK-47 though."
"I’m still ready to shake hands with anyone who designs a better assault rifle than mine.”
- Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov (Born: 10 Nov 1919, Died Today: 23 Dec 2013, Russian Small Arms Designer that Developed the AK Series Rifles)
