I highly recommend both. Throw in the 25mm Bushmaster too. That beast is a hoot.

Looks like fun.

For me, I'd like to... hell I don't know. The only thing that comes to mind is skydive. That seems pretty achievable.

Punch used to host promotional events at cigar shops where customers could get their photo talken with the harlequin shadow background.

1. Hold my grand-baby in my arms (I don't have one yet but I'm hoping my Combat Medic daughter will help fulfill that wish soon)
2. Have a baby with my wife of 9 months (I'm not gettin' any younger) or adopt
3. Visit a country in Asia (I've been to 14 diff countries, but never anywhere in Asia)
4. Visit: Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, Dakota Badlands, Key West, Maine
5. Build a sailboat (or two) and sail it around the Caribbean (I know, I know, just buy one. It would give me a better sense of accomplishment to build it instead)

I'll think of more. If number 2 happens I can forget 3,4, and 5 for some time.

I hear you Stratrider. I would rather drive a pretty good car that I built myself than to drive a state of the art one that I paid someone else to build.

Ehh, it's fine because its fully automatic and there's a certain appeal to that. I've shot one, and it was a nice shooting gun, but honestly I'm not itching to shoot another one.

Something with more historic value, on the other hand... Like the aforementioned Gatling gun... Now that would be fun.

I should have clarified ... a hand crank gatling gun ....... I wouldn't mind shooting a minigun from the side of a chopper either ....... or riding in an ac-130 while its firing .... badass

Have not shot a hand crank gatling gun. Definitely going on the bucket list.

Aren't those perfectly legal to build and operate, because they're hand powered?

Sure, it's legal. You can get hand cranks for semi-automatics (hellfire.) I have seen advertisements for a 10/22 side by side Gatling.
But nobody has made one with revolving barrels... yet
