    Hunting illegal aliens?

      GEE! I hope so! It would take me back to my days in Vietnam (although, usually I only had an M-60).

      It’s not an obstacle unless covered by fires.

    Serge’s chopper?

    Kinda over kill if you’re interested in bacon from chopper pig hunting, but it would sure help clean up invasive species!

    Wow, which machine gun instills more fear into an enemy? 800 rounds/min of .50 BMG, or 4-5000 rounds/ min of 7.62×51 Nato? I think I would rather have the 800/min of .50 BMG if I was the good guy, but as the bad guy, I’d choose…neither! Sheesh, awesome firearms, and these things have been around a while!

      How does a selectable 1,000 or *2,000* rounds per min. in a 3-barrel .50 BMG sound?

      For your full-auto pleasure, here’s the GAU-19B 50 Cal Gatling:

        Alrighty, that needs to go on my wish list.

        Wow, amazing.

        America! Fornicate in the affirmative!

    Protect the border. With a wall… Of lead!!!!!

    Ooooooh, expensive toys. Had to watch that twice.

    Capped off 200 rounds from a M134 in Las Vegas as a part of my bachelor party. Absolute bucket list item.

    Our C-47 “Spooky” would slide sideways when we let all three guns go. I also like the 30mm one the A-10 is built around. Sorta like “Mad Max’s” answer to road rage in LA traffic.

    Sight right out of 1917, Would think Uncle could come up with something more effective/efficient today.

    Wow. Those birds are a heck of a lot lighter when they land.

    Fine way of telling, and pleasant piece of writing
    to obtain information on the topic of my presentation focus, which i
    am going to convey in university.
