    I apologize for the loud cuss word... If I knew how to edit the sound I would.
    This is the peak of my shooting career. The brake on this rifle tamed the recoil to be less than my 270. MAN!....I am still smiling. I should have taken a picture of the target, I drilled the bullseye at 100 yards with the first round and grouped the rest within 1 inch. I was pulling the others due to being a little giddy!!!
    EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ONE!!

    Before the ".50 Ban" in CA I debated buying a .50. Decided it had limited value so passed. Dang!

    Good thing my buddy went out and bought a Barret and registered it. So we all get to shoot it. Lots of fun blowing up 1 gallon water jugs at 800-1000 with surplus ball.

    My spot in the dez allows for basically unlimited range, and the Barret does a great job of "owning" anything within sight. It is a hoot and a half.

    Also envy +100



    Think the largest calibre we can legally have here is .416. HOWEVER, finding somewhere you could legally shoot it...that's another thing :rolleyes:


    Hey Aus - a Kiwi guy who lives here rang me the other night, excercising some well-deserved bragging rights over shooting a .50cal on a recent trip back home. And an AR. And an AK. And he doesn't even have a licence! Bastard lol

    Sweet!

    Sorry I posted no explosive target reactions, we were shooting bullseyes at 100 yards at the local range. Next trip out it will be frozen 1 gal water jugs from 300 to 800 yards. I WILL POST THOSE!!
    The rifle belongs to a good friend of mine. Ahhh to be single and no children again....

    For the uninitiated that muzzle break will beat spectators to pieces if standing to the side of the shooter. :eek:

    Cool shoot!!! :cool:

    Muzzele break!

    Agreed, the brake gives the shooter a good puff of hot air also. Not enough to bother but lets you know the dragon just spoke. ;)

    i didn't realize the muzzle breaks brought the kick back that much
