Jack. I fucking love you. That was the best vid I've seen in a while. The POW/MIA flag was icing on the cake.
Just an awesome piece of weaponry...devastating. Truly the hand of God. And good call with Mack on the lead-in, though Ventura's Tyrannosaurus Rex comment ranks right on up there.
Callin in 'God's Hate' (30mm) on those sorry pieces of shit was icing on the cake. Oh and naming your shit "Bitch Slap Betty" yeah that's man-status. Recommendation for soundtrack to that video: "Black Betty" by Ram Jam. Yep, that would hit the spot...
I also want to mention, who else thinks that Mack from Predator (shown above) is the best military character ever portrayed in movie? "Gonna have me some fun, gonna have me some fun..."
@HugeFan @JackMurphyRGR My Team Sergeant in Robin Sage pulled a Mack on one of our boy scout volunteers. He fell asleep on guard duty so our (training) Team Sergeant pulled a knife on him and says something like, "You're ghostin' us mothafucker. You want Charlie to sneak up in our patrol base and skull fuck us in the night?" Needless to say, that kid had a tummy ache and had to go home the next day. WTF dude!!!
The best thing would be to find out if the Boy Scout put his big boy undies on later in life and "Ranger'd the fuck Up". If that's the case, AWESOME! If not then I'm thinkin that (regardless of how someone feels about the Team Sergeant's use of language) he did the boy and anyone serving in SF a big favor. Me I don't personally subsrcibe to the "Meek shall inherit the earth" philosophy. I love the ethic and mentality, love it!
You're ghostin' us, motherfucker. I don't care who you are back in the world, you give away our position one more time, I'll bleed ya, real quiet. Leave ya here. Got that?
@JackMurphyRGR for some reason I'm a fan of Arnold in Commando...the movie is not all that great but I used to watch that movie when i was 8 and playing Commando myself haha...Enlisting soon
Nice. Love how it's business as usual for them. Near the end, did he say grab all the 7.62 off the medevac?
WORST. CAMERAMAN. EVER.
lol @ not showing a Ventura screen capture because he turned into a giant weeping vag.
@BoxOfGridSquares We don't really have a warm and fuzzy anymore...
Does the mini have much advantage over other belt fed systems ? Or is it six to one half a dozen to the other ?
@TOMBSTONE It depends on what you consider an advantage. Rate of fire? Versatility? Cost? Portability?
The maintainance really aint all that bad Jack, it blows all the shit out the end of the barrels. BUT, the single reason this system gets a bad rep from 18B's is because most of them never get any formal training on it before going into theatre. (sounds weird I know). You cant just gloss over this thing, you really have to go to the vendor to get the ins and outs of it. If you dont set it up right and time it correctly then youll have catastropic malfunctions that deadline the gun everytime. I still stuck with the M2HB because of the range and power.
@Connor. +2 Jack and Brandon... maintenance was a nightmare in Iraq as well. I was glad I wasn't the bravo on the team with it. A lot of cursing was had by our bravos with a crowbar in between the barrels. It DID have a major psychological value though. We did numerous test fires/shows of force in our back yard with local traffic jams observing. We heard from our informant networks that it was known the firepower we rolled with. Never got hit :)
@Connor. I considered it to have a massive drawback, the maintainance. Especially in the desert. I stuck with the M2HB. If it ain't broke...
@Riceball p.s. I have this urge to write to Dillon and put a bug in their ear about prototyping a minigun in .416 Barrett :)
@Riceball I finally got a chance to shoot some real-honest-to-gosh selectable fire subguns and carbine at a vendor stand last year. I got to try out an MP-5, a KRISS, a Thompson and an M-16. I am going to pat myself on the back because there was a little pressure since my current instructor was on security detail there and was watching me from some feet away. My training generalized perfectly and I was able to fire good accurate bursts with everything and center punching all the tgts - Whoo Hoo! You know what? Although the KRISS has a much higher cyclic rate and that special bolt, the Thompson was just as easy and I loved it! Riceball et al - thought this would tickle you (I get it all the time) from a USMC friend on a semi-underground precision long range page: http://twolftfeet.com/me/darren.jpg
@JackMurphyRGR Although I love firing the M2, I'd still kill for the chance to fire a mini-gun of any sort. I know I'd come away from firing one with the biggest shit eating grin on my face.
@JackMurphyRGR I agree with Jack on this one.
