The goal is to shoot centerfire surplus ammo...

The Yugo's grenade launcher might be very secondary to many, due to the Yugo's legendary rugged construction.
But the Yugo's...

The temps are nice out there, but I've had layovers in both PDX, and SEA at nearby hotels.

The CMP ammo is Greek Boxer-primed M2 Ball for .50/rd. It has about 190 rounds/sealed can.

You will probably need the same club (or G. Collectors Assoc.) paperwork as you would to buy a rifle.
