I only got to fire the 240 once.

I did however get a 249 so hot the barrel welded itself to the receiver. The CO wasn't too happy about that. But it sure was a lot of fun.

One of my favorites was the GAU-5.
Does that make me an old fart?

Not really. The Air Forceis still using the GAU-5 with some other letters attached. Most are now fitted with M-4 length 14.5" barrels, but are different from the ground pounder M-4's

I still prefer the M60 because it's lighter, and because it's the most modern tranferable belt-fed available. The few 240's on the civilian registry are $75K and up, just like the half-dozen or so 249's out there.

And my M60 will be getting the E4 upgrade in the near future, making it every bit as reliable and versatile as a 240, only lighter.

Well by all mean CONGRATS!

First and foremost always keep that girl cleaned and oiled and she will serve you well! And keep tabs on that spare barrel!

I was a 240B and 249 gunner most of my time at Drum. Fun to shoot, sucks to carry.
