Today's gun pic is a big one:
That's an Armalite AR50, single shot .50 BMG rifle with 32X Burris scope. The tiny white dot against the small berm in the upper right corner is a refrigerator - at 800 yards. With the help of aepilotjim spotting for me and Speer helping me get to the target, I hit the refrigerator on my second shot. A slightly-larger-than-man-sized target nearly half a mile away, and I put a 0.5" hole in it.
Yeah, I was pretty darn proud of that.
The AR50 is an impressive chunk of hardware, I have to admit. It belongs to a friend of our hosts who was gracious enough to meet us out at the range and let us try out an honest-to-goodness .50 caliber rifle. He also had a pair of suppressed .22s - a Ruger 22/45 and a CZ452 bolt action rifle that was "Hollywood" quiet - it actually sounded like you were dry-firing rather than shooting.
That's the great thing about the gunnie community. At the shoot, folks were walking up to me, handing me loaded guns and saying "you gotta try this!" - and I did! Any time someone asked to try out one of the guns I brought I was happy to oblige (although I didn't get a chance to let my host try the K-Yote... *sad*). I went off on the great prairie dog hunt and left my remaining firearms on the bench, with the explicit instructions that anyone who wanted to try either had my blessing.
It's a great group of people, and I'm proud to be one of them...
That is all.
