    I think I would enjoy a 50BMG. I am thinking about a Serbu BFG-50 the price is not to bad.
    I think watermelons need to beware.:D

    What other 50BMG choices would you consider in the $2500 or less price?

    used barret semi auto 10shot mag. saw one in decent shape at the local cabelas last month for 2500$. if i had someplace to shoot it, it would have been in my gun safe.

    I would have snatched up that 82A1 in a second. Then turned around and sold it for a serious profit. A 99 or 95 would be much more than that.

    I endorse M14s opinion. I'd have borrowed money if I had to.

    reason i didnt is im not at all familiar with the barret 50's or barrets in general to asses whether it was a good price based on condition. price seemed really low and i dont buy guns im not familiar with when the price doesnt seem right. most liekly there was something hideously expensive to repair wrong with it which would account for the low price.

    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.

    "You spent how much?! But then you MADE how much?!"

    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.:D

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