I heard youve got to have a special tax stamp to receive that kind of ammo in the mail, I suggest Fed-ex, that way you can get it delivered on Saturday also! The nice part is that you can save yourself a trip to the range and just fire it from the back yard! Remember, safety first, you must have an FO or your probably gonna get in trouble, waste allot of rounds and have to share the fun of firing with the guy that you should have sent forward!

For the M65, the Forward Observer uses a different fire correction command- "LEFT one map sheet. DROP 2 zip codes."


Just remember- close only counts with horseshoes, hand grenades, and nuclear weapons.

I heard Germany had plans to make a self propelled version of the Shwerer guns. I would love to drive to work in both of these!

If you want long range. Build a gun designed by Gerald Bull.

Sadam was building one of these.

I remember hearing about Saddams attempt at building a fixed emplacement super gun (giant potato cannon), I think I heard we were watching for a long time and blew it up just before it could near completion. We probably should have shot him out the damn thing instead of hanging him!

Mortars are fun but I like missiles better (11H40)!

Not bad, but I like the way the Javelin bounces the turret about 100 ft in the air.

Default big gun

Ive hear that the 16 inch guns used on iowa class battleships are as accurate at 25 miles as a .243 is at 200yrds .Is that true ? Now if I could get a 104 re-done in colorcase -hardened finish by Doug Turnbull I would be in heaven!
