You should fire a real gun...like a 50 cal sniper rifle.....


Actually I did...on the very same day. Tele, I posted about this on the RE board, don't you remember?

I shot the Barrett Sniper rifle. It uses the famous BMG .50 caliber round, which has been around for decades. The thing was like a cannon going off....sent one hell of a shock wave. People standing 30 feet behind the shooter at the range felt one hec of a concussion.

The 50 caliber bullet is on the far left.
