"A British-based company is selling MP3 players which can be attached to an assault rifle. The 'AK-MP3' player is built into the ammunition clip of a Kalashnikov. It can be swapped with the real magazine carrying bullets and inserted into the weapon. ... It comes with enough storage space to hold 9,000 songs. Former Russian rock star Andrey Koltakov, a partner in the dotcom company offering the AK-MP3 for sale, said: 'This is our bit for world peace — hopefully, from now on many militants and terrorists will use their AK-47s to listen to music and audio books.'"

This is a neat accesory for the worldly mercenary. Now someone needs to come up with a handy cigar holder to stick in the butt of the gun and I would be sorted (complete with cutter and lighter of course).
No doubt one of the most popular tracks on the AK-MP3 will be 'Rock the Casbah' by the Clash. Of course, I would prefer something along the lines of 'Highway to Hell' by AC/DC, 'Wake up Dead' by Megadeth or 'Run to the Hills' by Iron Maiden. What would be yours?
