OK, The 20mm is more for fun and conversation and hoax. But the 50BMG is not.

It is either the 50 or a Nighthawk. The 50 costs less.

Just a little peer pressure for you,

No Need. I am getting it. It will be awhile, have to save up. It is now a toss up between these two.

I may need your peer pressure over the 300 Blackout.
I am undecided about that.

congrats when you get your 50bmg shihan...just a heads up when buying a fifty...some will have a tighter chamber specs. thats for competition/getting every last lil bit out of that .50 ...they will be more accurate but want chamber surplus ammo...as for the standard chambers SAAMI or the fun chambers....they will digest just about anything you throw in them...surplus ammo is fun to shoot...not only does it come in so many diffrent flavors its a lil hotter & cheaper to boot*just make sure your rifle can handle it...AIMsurplus has brazilian CBC 50bmg ammo on sale @ 16.95 for 10rds...this is very clean,accurate,a-lil-weak for surplus,& reloadable ammo!i have shot over 325rds of this ammo & have not had any kind of problems to date...stay safe,have fun!

JonM...my pea shooter weighs 43lbs and has a nasty muzzle break at the end of it...to me,my 6lbs single shot 20gauge loaded with #8 shot kicks morethe .50 has more of a push than a kick...could just be me...im not a big guy but i have a shot a 375 H&H & to me it didnt seem to be all that bad :/it might be a diffrent story if you or anyone was trying to shoot 50 WITHOUT THE MUZZLE BREAK!...not a good idea

I vote for the rifle in the 2nd pic, it has a very clean look to it. As for the .300 what's to decide ..... you need it!
