    Probably only in the sense the AK has a zero the kid was probably never told about. So when someone fricked with it and set the zero for 600 meters and they're shooting at 25 meters it can end up trickier to hit the target.

    Yes it is. It's easier to hit a man sized target with a pistol at pistol ranges than it is to hit a man sized target with a rifle at rifle ranges.
    Anyone can get good results at 10 or 20 yards with a pistol after very little training.
    It's a different story at 100, 200 and 300 yards with a rifle, or even longer distances.
    Aiming a pistol is also more intuitive than aiming a rifle, pistol shooting is more forgiving regarding stance.
    Once you have proper grip and trigger control, it's easy to shoot from a static position if you have time.
    It only becomes difficuilt once you try to be fast, and shoot dynamically.

    ymmv

      You are a noguns moron. Short of maybe operating like a tunnel rat a rifle is always going to shoot better than a pistol. A rifle is fricking easy mode to hit a target at 20 yards. Talking about hitting different shit at different ranges is a nonsensical argument

        They aren't going to give their kids rifles though. They'll give them pistols (and maybe a grenade), teach them how to pretend to surrender, then send them out to die.

        Stop talking out of your ass you imbecile, that wasn't the argument.
        Using a pistol to it's fullest ability, which is very short ranges, is simpler than doing so with a rifle at several hundred yards, you know, rifle distances. Braindead wienersucker. Post yout guns.

      maybe it's easier at short range if you're a noodle-armed little shit who barely weighs 100 pounds

      nah when you're young your eyes work and even AKs are "point and shoot" at 100 meters or so

      They aren't going to give their kids rifles though. They'll give them pistols (and maybe a grenade), teach them how to pretend to surrender, then send them out to die.

      pistols are probably more expensive than AKs though

      I strongly disagree from both personal experience and from talking to literally anyone who has guns. It significantly easier for me to hit a target with a rifle at 200 yards than hit with a pistol at 20 yards.

      Assuming the rifle is shot prone and the pistol is shot standing.

      I agree. I've taken a few noguns friends to the range and shooting my pistols at 20 yards, most could hit the target by the end of their first mag. Almost none of them could hit the 200 yard target with their first mag of 5.56, and that held twice as many rounds. This was all standing and with properly sighted irons. With optics this would probably be different, but I don't use optics usually due to personal preference.

        Well no shit they couldn't hit it. You don't shoot standing unsupported at 200 yard targets. When people say it's easier to shoot rifles further than pistols they generally assume you're talking about supported positions.

        Likewise with pistols, we assume standing because that's the most realistic use case.

          wut. maybe you don't! Shooting prone hardly qualifies as shooting at all under 300-400m.

    Americans could only dream of having a society where this is a possibility
    You don't even get to shoot 22 rifles in the boy scouts anymore because that too was taken over by subversives while you rage on the web about Russia

      Difference is I can have a closet full of guns and carry them around, whereas in Russia they pretty much only let you carry guns around when you’re committing war crimes for the state. Also as an American I don’t have to live in a shithole like Russia surrounded by fetal alcohol morons with no concept of self determination

    I never seen my dad shoot a rifle. Old man could shot a 44mag pistol better than I could shoot a rifle.
    Shooting a fullauto rifle is kinda different than shooting a pistol. A pistol is usually not full auto, so yeah, I could see trying to shoot an AK being harder than a pistol.

    I was better with a handgun than I was with a rifle when I started out, and I didn't touch a gun until I was 28
    It's possible for another individual to be the same way

    Handgun shooting could be 'easier' if you're shooting a silhouette target at 7 yards vs. shooting a rifle at the same target at 100, but shooting a handgun well is certainly much harder than shooting a rifle well. It took me much longer to start getting consistently good groups with handguns than it did to reach that same level with rifles.

    If you are noguns, you won't understand. Pistols are harder to shoot accurately and use effectively than basically any rifle, especially a lightweight rifle.

    If you have more training on a pistol or you went through pistol training first, yes it's a bit more wonky feeling than what you're used to. In general I'd say a rifle feels more foreign to normal people than a handgun. One is like picking up a remote, the other requires points of contact and balancing to shoulder. Accurate fire is typically easier with a rifle for the untrained, handguns require more fine motor control to get accurate shots. I'm far more comfortable with a handgun than rifle though and it just comes down to training hours, something you STILL have zero (0) of.

    no, finer sights + longer sight radius = more accuracy
    finer sights means the rear notch isn't as far apart as a pistol's rear sights and the front post isn't as wide as the one on a pistol (thus the protective ring around it)
    sight radius is the distance between the front and rear sight
