One must see it to believe it.

I'll pass.

    1. With the size of lead it trowing downrange, a fairly nice sized one I'm sure. Thanks, sweet lady.

  6. thanks. but i already had my 80lb ass thrown 20ft after every time i fired an FNC1 in basic training. try being thrown that far after every round in a 20-round rapid fire exercise and having to climb back up on your sandbag - and remember - it was a race to empty your mag. i'm 40 lbs heavier now, but i am joining forces with the ever intelligent and articulate Sixbears - i gots me a lots of nope too!

    your friend,

  7. I would have to shoot it just once to say I had. I think I would maybe wear a chainmail shirt or something for it.

  8. There ain't a thick enough recoil pad made that would let my poor old mangled shoulder shoot that thang. But I might have paid a buck or three to watch kymber get smacked around by the FNC1 :-)
    Never did see anything regarding alleged caliber for that monster - or what legitimate 'sporting purpose' it meets (insert eye roll).

    1. Like you, Anon, I'd pay to watch kymber fire that cannon...and smile all day. Thanks, my friend.

    2. thanks for the vote of confidence Anon...i did fire a 50-cal down on a secret base in the states...mind you - a big strong tough marine was behind me but i don't think he was doing too much 'cept standing there - bahahahahahah! naw - poor guy was handling that gun for me while i tried my damndest to aim it - oh well - i was never in the infantry - intelligence was my trade - and we were never really expected to fire weapons. in fact, here in canada, they would arm grandmothers with weapons in the event of a war LONG BEFORE they would ever arm my trade. i did manage to qualify as a marksman every year - but that was 15 years ago when i was still a youn'un.

      thanks so much - your comment gave me a giggle!

  10. That thing should be a crew assisted weapon. Plus, what would the range on that thing be?

    1. Flier, hard to say on the range. I believe its a 931 caliber weapon. It would sure punch a hole in a target. Thanks, my friend.
