That sure makes a purty little noise ;)!
@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
Favorite movie and favorite scene of all time.
As fun to watch as these video's are, it bums me out that we never learn about the number of EKIAs
