    Rocked a Ma Deuce when I was in the Army. But operating the 25mm Bushmaster on a Bradley was cooler.

    Yep, that'd be the one, Fish...the one I shot was a single shot, not a semi-automatic...the difference in price btwn the two is 3200 vs 7500 I was told

    I think you mean single shot vs. automatic..semi-automatic is single shot, auto re-load.

    I can imagine what the ammo cost.

    :eek:

    it's pretty pricey. .50BMG is the same ammo used in all our jets' machine guns.

    I think most FIghters have 20mm Cannon, and the A-10 and AC-130 have 30mm cannons. :eek:

    It's for self defense if someone breaks into his home.

    They have just under 800 acres to hunt...they are AVID hunters, not rednecks...they've shot bull elk off their porch down into a valley with the .50 the bullet does less damage than a smaller rifle, as it goes right through the intended target. These are all Portland businessmen btw..not bumkins u a$$bags

    A friend has a 50 and he casts his own lead bullets for it and reloads his
    own ammo. Keeps the cost down a lot. You only get about 7-8 bullets out
    of a pound of lead but he usually gets his lead for nothing. The brass is
    expensive unless you can find used brass. The primers cost about a dime
    so his per round cost is probably down around 25 cents and a lot of time.
    His biggest problem is finding a place to shoot around here. A lot of the
    ranges don't allow the 50's to be shot.
