OT - Holy Chit!!!! The Public Can Buy These!!!!

Check this thing out!! I had read about them in military service, but I had no idea they were commercially available. They're also right down the road from me!!!

I wonder if they give factory tours... [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

You didn't know that? Man are they fun. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Nothing like target shooting at 1000 yds.
They are a little rich for my blood to buy.........heck even to shoot. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
You gotta love 10,000 ft lbs of energy. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: OT - Holy Chit!!!! The Public Can Buy These!!!

They are a pretty decent rifle. Our scopes went out to 1200m but with a good spotter I've walked shots past 1800m. It's just a shame you can't get the good ammo to go with them [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If ya gotta carry it, I'd still rather have my M40 though

Thats pretty sweet. I've never seen one, but I'd love to shoot one someday. Instead of a factory tour, see if they'll let you test fire one.

Re: OT - Holy Chit!!!! The Public Can Buy These!!!!

The general rule of thumb is: If you can afford it somebody will sell it to you. You should have been over at Camden, Tn last month. We had about ten .50s, a few machineguns, about three dozen submachineguns, and more Sport Utility/Homeland Defense Rifles then I'd care to count. Just some gun folks doing their thing. If you'd like to try a few rounds through my AR50 just let me know, I'm up near Clarksville so it isn't far. I've got about seven flavors of ammo so it can be interesting. Everything from Ball to Armor Piercing Incend Tracer. As far as good ammo, there are several companies making Match Grade fodder for the half inchers. The Honady AMAX 750gr has a Ballistic Coeffecient of 1.1 leaving the muzzel. The Dominator-X is right up there too. Not too many rounds can make that claim. The attached photo was taken this past Saturday. If ya wanna give it a go just let me know.

Re: OT - Holy Chit!!!! The Public Can Buy These!!!

That sounds like fun! I was just up in Clarksville a few weeks back buying a Lincoln 9inch off a very pleasant guy destined for Fort Drum (man he's gonna freeze).

"That ain't a gun, this is a gun!"

Wow!

“Come and get them!”

The offer to shoot stands for anyone in the area. Since this is a Jeep board I've attached a more "on topic" picture.
