You need to come in this forum more and less in the politics forum.

agreed..
generally not straight back at you though
i have a bunch of videos from knob creek and my friends place down there...
if you've never shot tracers before it's always a shock how much that bullet bounces around... and hah the sound... that zhiiiiiing as it whizzes thru the air spinning... .50 bmg ftw

I have a few friends that have them.. one of my friends has a barrett .50 the 10rd semi.. omfg kicks like a shotgun..

granted this is a lot of small arms fire...
with some .50.. thought some of the people here might enjoy this video of Knob Creeks night shoot
(they have a night shoot every night of the show (which is april and oct if your interested in going)
let me know if you go.. I usually go to both shoots.. Pretty much the only time I see that group of friends.. I have some friends who live down that way and are FFL's

Can't say I beleive it didn't hurt him more. When I reload 50 it hurts when a round falls of the table and on to my big toe!
