Weight it out

Wait, there are really men who believe women can’t fire guns…because they are too heavy? Or because the recoil is too large?

I’ve fired an AK-47 (and an AK-74) and various knock-offs of same. They aren’t that heavy and don’t have a particularly strong recoil. Most 10-year-old kids could fire them, and in some parts of the world, they do. Ever heard of child soldiers? Yeah.

The only gun I’ve ever fired that I think any normal-weight woman would have trouble with firing unbraced is a 10-gauge shotgun with buckshot. That thing had a kick.

But an AK-47? Not much recoil at all and not particularly heavy. Easy for anyone to fire. Which is kinda the whole point of that weapon, after all.
