[Only .50BMG pic I've got... for now]

I've also got the Serbu receiver, gotta build it up though.

Don't have one, but if current trends continue it will probably leapfrog to the top of my list of purchases.  I do second the "Long live Ronnie Barrett and the BIG 50" though.

I don't have $2,500 (minimum) to blow on a rifle right now, let alone to blow on a rifle that I can't shoot anywhere.


But dey's cool as hell!

It's on my "one of these days" list.  MG's come first for now.....

No, but I am gonna get one before they ban them completely. $2500 is steep, but that's why God invented Credit Cards. Just curious, how much for rounds??

depends. I've seen then for $1.60 a ball round up to $35 for sabot rounds.

I only wish I had a .50...

Ooh, or a South African 14.5x114mm rifle with a 20mm conversion set.

It'd be a fine time for a group buy if the process was'nt so skewed.

All I currently have is it's baby brother the .50 Beowulf.  But if my tax return is pretty enough, an AR50 may be moving into the house to keep baby brother company.

The 60 Minutes episode was very good.  Ronny didn't back down and definitely towed the RKBA line.  Someday when he gets bored with his job he should run for NRA president.

On a similar note, I recall along time ago seeing that someone was making single shot .50 uppers for AR-15 lowers.  Are they still around?  I have had no interest in going that route BUT if the feds start getting serious about a ban I think I might just have to go out and splurge.  Of course if a ban included ammo as well it would become a rather pricey paperweight.

I've got a Barrett M99 with a Lightforce 5.5x - 22x on it. It was actually a "group buy for me and two of my friends. We have fun shooting the big bastage!

I need to get some pics!

There are several manufacturers making 50bmg uppers now. About 6 that comes to mind quickly.

After watching 60 minutes I have a feeling there will be an increase in  demand for the 50s which will cause a price increase.  I've always avoided shelling out the dough for one because I just wouldn't pay over $700.00 for any gun.  I usually put price tags on items I buy.  For example, $8.00 for a AK mag, $15.00 for an AR Mag, $1.00 for a quart of oil (which I never buy unless its on sale unless in a jam), $10.00 for a DVD, $100.00 for 500 rounds of LC 5.56, etc.

I think time has come to shell out the bucks, but I'd hate to fork it all over at one time.  I might consider a signature loan.  IIRC somewhere I read there was company that you let you make payments and when you've paid off the gun they would ship it to a ffl for transfer, anyone got a line on that?

I need an M95. Maybe within a year or so.

I think Serbu has a payment plan for their rifles.

60 minutes did a good job, I enjoyed it. However all the exposure will proabably lead to even more heat to ban them. Get them while you can!

Crazy info about those triple threat rounds.  I did not know they existed.  I want one

Just got it still have to get a scope and get her dialed in

I want one, but I don't think it'll fit in the safe.

Time for a taller safe!

Any one know where in La I can shoot a 50 cal? How about the closes range out of state from the New Orleans area?

Man... I watched that 60 minutes...  Such BS...  Got tired of it and had to switch to some football....

We had a discussion about it over at the other site.

Got mine! Picked up an Armalite AR-50 last year in anticipation of future banning. Not that many places to shoot it, but sure is fun when I do.


Link Posted: 1/9/2005 8:35:24 PM EDT
A year or two ago, I was trying to decide between a Serbu BFG50 and a Barrett M82A1.  I did the proper ARFCOM thing and got both.

Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x mounted on my Windrunner.  Pic was taken simply by placing my Olympus 3040 up against the eyepiece and letting the camera do the work.  Target is 3ft diameter.

One of my favorite .50 BMG pics - my GF using up my ammo

Link Posted: 1/9/2005 9:16:25 PM EDT
I thought 60 min didn't help the cause out at all - and I like Barrett a lot.

I wishsomeone would just say that if you are going to ban 50s because terrorists _might_ use them...then we should actively "profile" arabs/muslims and maybe even put muslims in internment camps because they might be terrorist.
