What does bother me a bit is what happened when I told a guy at work (who reloads his own and has extensive knowledge about guns) that I bought a Yugo M59 SKS. He went into a 5 minute rant in Russian about how I should have consulted with him, and how the Yugo SKS is not accurate, and how I should have bought a Soviet SKS, etc., etc.
Now I am starting to feel kind of bad. I guess I have to just get the gun out to the range, break it in, and see for myself if it is as innacurate as I was told.
