AK's do tend to go bang every time you pull the trigger but they are hard to get good accuracy out of (compared to AR's). You're right, "to each his own", but my guns never get dirty enough to put either design in jeopardy of jamming. The Vietnam days of of fouling and jamming for the AR is long past. You also have a lot more options (uppers, barrels, accessories) with the AR as opposed to the AK. Just my opinion. Good luck with the search.
