    He needs to strip that fore-stock and heat shielding off the barrel... Makes it WAY lighter... And easier/quicker to change out barrels... And that one probably needs a barrel change if its fired like that last burst very much.

    FJ in Warrenton, MO is packes ronight as well... I pulled in behind 3 other trucks. All 4 of us went straight to the back of the lot. The 3 in front of me all creeped right past the ONLY available spot in the entire place, and it wasnt even that hard of a spot to get into... I lined up and put this reefer into it no problems

    Dont worry... Preferred administration is by LONG RANGE, high velocity injection... Its far enough away you wont see much.

    Well, there is a box of buffalo bore hardcast lead round nose at 255 grain in super +p at 1350 per second out of a 5 inch barrel. The whole thing is covered in a form of copper. Almost nickel. Does that make sense to you?

    Or maybe I am coffee posting. Need to brew another pot.

    Not bad.

    There is another rifle that was built a few years ago A modern gun that explores the limit of people being able to fire aimed rounds and not lose the entire shoulder assembly within the body. I'll spend some time tomorrow to see if I can find it. Its approximately a 2 inch caliber rifled ported barrel. They used about 50 pounds in sandbags to hold it down and so on.

    There was a novalogic game so long ago under which I played as Heavy552 from time to time (Because one of my trucks was 552 number and because I was never legal on scales with those containers. It's ridiculous.) Anyway the title is deltaforce land warrior I think it was.

    Grab a big rifle a giant scope and run for 20 minutes across the servers map. The city both teams are supposed to fight in is a distance blob.

    In the scope you go and see if you can locate the black dots of your enemy snipers 1800 yards in front of you. trying to pick off your team from behind.

    BOOOOM!

    Sip your coffee and wait a minute.

    4 seconds PLINK! the body jerks and flops dead due to that black dot headshot you did. Takes about 2 seconds due to dailup latency to confirm everything.

    Fast forward to later in POE mod (Point of existance) I was using the satellite view of the enemy land below and follow the infantry as they hide in a cabin.

    FIRE the big German 2000 roars out.

    No more cabin.

    They get idea to stay out of cabins. Hide behind very large rocks.

    BOOOM.

    Plink and that one hiding over there

    BOOOOM.

    Plink.

    Trashtalking comes across text chat in game. A few more plinks later people either rage quit or hunt me persoanlly slap a couple of C4 sticks under my treads.

    I may still ahve a surviving forum post where I defended that type of artillery use in game. And the devs were able to resolve it in several different ways. But it took a total federal case discussion in those days. Some for the system others against.

    Now a days with the younger ones, there is no discussion. It degenerates into bad words and the mods just close the thread. Tossing the worst of those who have not yet gotten the word to leave it.

    Well, they’re controlled as MG’s under the NFA of 1938, and with the Hughes amendment to the GCA of 1986 the prices of MG’s pretty much went to the moon overnight. That’s why a lot of MG owners don’t really want that to go away like it should.

    But if you can get the tax stamp they’re legal to own.

    I’d say that would be enough to topple the 5.45x39mm round’s reputation as the “poison bullet”. :eek:

    I’ve seen price tags at gun shows for transferable M-16’s at around the $25K range.

    A gun shop near here sold 2 Ruger AC556’s for $6500 each a couple years ago. The cheapest MG’s I’ve seen were MAC-10’s going for about $4000.
