too good to be true usually is.

it was totally cool to see one in real life tho. very impressive rifle.
Too good to be true is the reason I have many of my guns. An entire collection for what should be the price for a single gun? Sign me up.

Barret 82A1 for $2500? I'll take 6, thanks.

Shihan, if you get a 50 let me know. I'll trade you a few rounds for some trigger time. I do miss the weapons I got to play with courtesy of uncle sam.

You snatch it up, and have it posted to GB before you get home. Then the wife will be amazed.

For a good, accurate, inexpensive .50, don't forget to look at the LAR Grizzly Big Boar (their spelling, not mine). Single shot bullpup and shell-holder design with a 36" barrel and 30# weight. The short OAL also fits in my safe very comfortably.

I think it has a bit less recoil than the Serbu, probably due to the weight difference. Any of them are a blast to shoot though and I love my LAR!

So, when are you going to buy it, Shihan? You've certainly created a lot of conversation!

I have started my 50 Fund. I have permission from RSG, she is more excited about it than me. I am hoping to have it in time for El Paso.

If anyone would like to donate I will give you my PayPal info.
