I went to a friends shop today to give a poor black rifle a home.





Its a Watsons Weapons Single Shot 50 BMG. I have laid my Bushmaster DCM Service Rifle next to it as a comparison. The service rifle has a 20 inch barrel. I have been wanting to get into the BMG guns for a while and this one only has about 50 rounds through it and was the owners first 50.

So who wants to pull the trigger first? :twisted:

So that would be something I should bring to Blacksburg on my next business trip to Tech? :D

Given enough notice, why not.

Though, I've resigned myself to never fire a single shot .50BMG...

"detached retina" is all I needed to hear.

Recoil should equal a 20 guage shotgun given its weight nearing 40 lbs. However standing on either side will buy you quite a bit of muzzle blast from the brake. I bet I still flich the first couple times I pull the trigger

Whooo cares if you flinch? All you gotta do is come close to hitting something and you will kill it. I want one.

Is it rude to hate someone you have never met? Jealousy is coursing through my veins. However i wouldnt bother to make you made unless i was say 3 miles away! :wink:

Steve,

Blago and Daley are trying their darndest to ensure I cant own one of these. They can bite me. :twisted: BTW, the Norinco SKS says hi. :)

Kauzi,

You might want to back up a bit. Although youre probably safe from me outside of 1000 yards, the right trajectory and the BMG will go 5 miles or more. Our club currently has a morotoreum (sp) on shooting this since if you put one over the backstop, its going to travel a long way.

:cry: Yup, now I'm sure I hate you....I really, truly, from the depths of my soul hate you. That being said...That thing is gorgeous! I shot a friends Barrett about a month ago, and I fell in love, if that thing is half as nice you're gonna love it! :D

My home would be much more suitable for such a poor, innocent, and defenseless 'little guy' :p ... Hand it over or I call child services!

Seriously though, that's a beast. Just looking at it makes me smile. Definently let us know how it turns out for you once you get a chance to put a few thru it.

A lot of the guys that have 50 BMG's at the club have Armalites, Barretts, and Cobb's. I couldnt justify that kind of money for a gun you dont shoot very often but still wanted something. This is really not much more than a pipe with a trigger. The fact that it looks like Satans sidearm is just a bonus
