This would probably be my choice. We cant have the Bushmasters right because people think they are banned?

Handled one 10 years ago and very nice, mag fed. Probably get under $5k with really nice glass.

Delmarva Sporting Clays now prohibits .50 BMGs as well. Someone a couple of years ago overshot a berm with one and damaged property.

BMG 50

Purchased a used Barrett because I thought it would be fun. Was going to shoot at the Quantico 50 bmg matches. Never happened. Pulled it out of the safe every now and then to show it off. Ended up selling it to a member here on MDS.

Many better toys to consider.

That got API/incendiary rounds banned there. I don't know of any public ranges that still allow incendiary or tracer rounds.
You're welcome ....

That was from a piece of steel that someone just painted. I've used Incendiaries there quite a bit and never had issue. Think the paint caught and transferred to the grass on the berm. I have a video of it somewhere. Once they let me fire off a tracer out of the 50 after it rained.

Fire extinquishers were a good shoot.

I had the Barrett M99. I really liked it, but I'll be honest, I enjoy shooting my 338 LM a lot more.

You sold it to me. It was a great gun, but like I said in my other post, 338 I like even more I would have kept the 50 though if I didn't need to rebuild a boat motor and if there was still somewhere reasonably close to shoot it.
