Actually, this thread was simply about shooting and even owning one of those big guns. what a person does with it, is up to them. As for me--watermelons at 1000 yards would be plain old fun, and most challenging. I could easly live the remainder of my life, and never kill another thing.

Firearms have been around forever. I just have a great deal of respect for the advancement this particular arm has in it's design. there are a few others I am impressed with also. I'll be right back. ---and let me say one more time, I have no plans to do harm with any of them.

Yup, and the only way a citizen can truly defend themselves against the government and be apart of the process is by voting and being involved in the community.
Hiding in a hole with a gun won't get anything solved.

Still think it would be more fun to toss a pumpkin or a watermelon into the ozone with a catapult or trebuchet. Yeah, I know I was born in the wrong century...

Seem if this one works. --A most impressive design. Makes one wonder why they didn't think of it years ago.

killling is never fun. exotic ammo is a horrid mistake. use 12 gauge and 9mm most common ammo, ammo will be the issue.

Ammo is hard to find now days for sure. and the price keeps going up. Most folks I know have a pretty good supply.---I have no guns, they were all stolen many years ago, and I have the police report. So nobody needs to waste their time coming to my house to collect them.
