    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.

    I believe there dedicated are they not?
    and fire a form of blank but not actual blanks so they can be fired inside of building and not cause deaths during training

    Give me 50 push-ups soldier. I noticed the M240b and then promptly noticed your hospital corners do not form a 45 degree angle on your bunk. Get your d!ck in the dirt and push em out.
