Interesting. I'll have to come back and re-read when I can focus. It's too late in the day.
Grew up around guns.
SKS - my ex owned one. I never shot it.
Browning .12 guage riot gun (shotgun). nice gun my ex owned.
.12 guage shotgun- my favorite gun. Remington 870 Wingmaster. I loved this gun. My son wanted it. I wish I hadn't traded it to him...
.410 shotgun (Mossberg). I own. It's okay.
.38 by Tarus, police special. I've seen people say they are junk, but I bought mine years ago, and really liked it.
Years ago I had a friend who owned Ar 15, an Uzi, and a Steyr Aug.
I shot either the Ar 15, or Uzi at targets.
Don't remember ever shooting the Steyr Aug.
Another friend who owned an M1 Garand.
In my opinion, that's a heck of a gun.
