    Yes, heard my fair share of that, too. I've also heard more people telling folks that they were former SEAL's than I think out numbered every man, woman and child that ever heard the word Navy.,,, ha..ha..ha.. but your guy takes the cake

    Go spank yourself, take pics, and send 'em to UW

    Seriously, no biggie, I think a lot of these "Lounge" threads do that all the time. I was mostly just jesting around, and seeing how I'm not an Admin or a mod, It's really none of my business what you post, and wherre.

    The biggest gun BS I’ve been told is that .50 cals aren’t made for shooting people . That’s what I used mine for :)

    I’ve shot coyotes and hogs with .50’s and .416’s. Makes a hell of a mess.

    Who’s we? If you’re referring to the military....that’s a common mistake that got spread somehow. An M2 (or Barrett) can be used in multitude of ways and it’s role/employment determines if it’s anti-whatever. Our laws of war do not prohibit using the .50 BMG round, regardless of what it’s fired from, to be used against people

"Hey Bob, looks like you've got a hitch in your get-along." "Yeah, Jer, shot myself in the ass." Seems he was downstairs on the range, with a Baby Browning .25 in a small-of-the-back holster. During a draw and fire, he did a fire and draw. Drilled a hole through his left cheek with an FMJ. "Wow, that must have hurt." He grimaced, "Not near as bad as the long swab they ran back and forth through the hole a dozen times."
    Ha..ha..ha..ha.. I guess it depended on which hole in his ass they were running back and forth through....especially if it had Iodine or the likes on it.

    We ... as in me... my team, my dept. I would never say we and include an organization I wasn't apart of.

    My fault. I was thinking “we” as in the US. I know my locality has precision rifles (6.5/.308/.30-06) but no .50s...didn’t cross my mind about LEO. Sorry about that
