What would YOU use on a T-Rex?

Several people mentioned grenade launchers.

My response:

As I see it, the thing is coming after you and may be pretty close. That rules out a grenade launcher as the grenades are spin-armed and may not arm before impact. Since a relatively short time is required before you are eaten, full automatic fire is probably your best bet. That said, a T-Rex is very large, with lots of muscle mass between you and vital organs, therefore penetration is a must and takes precedence over any factors normally used on present day terrestrial creatures. With that, I present the following two choices:
BAR loaded with AP ammo. 20 rounds capable of being fired from the shoulder full auto. Bonnie did it, I;m sure most of us can.
Barrett M82A1 .50 BMG AP. Can also be lifted and fired from shoulder unlike M2. Has muzzle break for recoil control. Possibly convert to full auto. May be uncontrolable, will require further research.

As a further possibility, MiniGun chambered in 5.56mm. Once again, AP ammo is a must. Shower "Barney" with a veritable wall of lead. Also needs further research.

What would you use?

Shotgun with #4 buck.
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 11:54:51 PM EDT
I'd want a knife.
That way I can cut my way out after he eats me.

Although, that 20mm Lahtmi (sp?) would probably be good T-Rex medicine.

.410, at that; don't want to ruin too much meat, after all.

Edit: You know, after thinking about it, you don't even have to fire the gun at all; just rack the slide.

Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Apparently the scenario was essentially self defense, not hunting. As in, I am hiking through the jungle and may encounter a T-Rex. This would preclude things like helicopter gunships, stinger missiles, and heavy machineguns.

Hell yes the .577 Tyrannosaur! Why not use the round that was designed to kill T-Rex?

BTW: What kind of shooting range WAS that? Carpeted, individual rooms, gotta take your shoes off...that was the ritziest looking shooting range I have ever seen! We need more of them here!
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 12:56:26 AM EDT
AT-4

For T-Rex all I need is something big enough to take out the knees of the guy running next to me.

After that it's all good.

Let me be the first to say it. 87

as for me I would probably use "an official .177 Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred
shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time."

gawd I love that movie

If you were to use a mini gun why not one in .308 not 5.56

I'd rub myself allover with somthing foul and poisonous so if he licks me he wouldn't eat me and if he eats me he will die.

Or you could just stand still cause t-rex only sees you if you move you know.

Barrett Fiddy or at VERY least a 12ga. combat shotgun with Coppersolid slugs. The 12ga. would for sure be used for other - smaller - dinos anyway.

I wouldn't use conventional weaponry to take out a T-Rex. I'd just have a good pair of running shoes and a bottle of BBQ sauce to dump on the guy standing next to me.

I don't have to be fast, just faster than you.

If you insist on having a weapon to confront a T-Rex, make sure it's well padded. That way it won't hurt as bad when he shoves it up your ass.

9mm



Metal Storm's 9mm@1,000,000 rounds per minute.

I figure I'd probably only need a 5 second burst, so I'd only need about 83,333 rounds of 9mm.

For a fixed position - Ma Duece would own a T-Rex easily. If I had to hump the sucker around - Mag 58 (M240) with mix of ball and AP. Hell they kill elephants plenty dead in Africa with FAL's using ball ammo.

T-rex's were either herbivorous or scavengers. They would probably run away from you.

I would throw this at it.

As soon as the T-Rex ate it. Instant death.

All you have to do is 'RACK' your shotgun and the T-Rex will piss/shit itself on the spot and run far far away.
