since this is my first .50 cal i have ever owned or shot i thought this was pretty cool... i live in a pretty small town so i can shoot right in my back yard and not get in any trouble, well anywase i bought a AR-50 and i got some tracers from watsonsweapons.com, i called my buddy up that lives about 15-20 miles away (as the crow flies) i shot a tracer round when it was pretty much completely dark out, i called him up and he said he coud see it no problem at all,
i just thought it was pretty cool that he could actually see it at that far away, i could only imagine what it would look like with a belt fed!!!

Remember to watch out though, shooting a 50 in the air isn't a good idea and isn't legal, it would probably penetrate a planes hull.

yeah i know, i for sure made sure that their were no plaes in the air, actually i live right by an airport, but no planes were landing at the time so i figured i was pretty safe to shoot.

be carefull with tracers, real easy to catch dry field grasses on fire with them.....(ask me how I know)

Neat.
Dont start a fire and dont shoot next to an airport!
Your going to get yourself on the news and gonna ruin it for everyone else.
