I'm from Russia, Kaliningrad (formerly Königsberg). Ever since childhood I have been actively interested in weapons. Now I am well versed in weapons, and know how to deal with it (at least, with the AK-74, and bolt-action rifles). Interest in the arms and led me to this site. Frankly, I bad know much English, but that does not stop me to communicate at a basic level.
