My dad and I are building those .50's and we were wondering about barrels and optics. Any advice on either one? Dad's thinking to go with a suplus M2 barrel till we know it works, to which I was tempted to reply simply "Well since you built the thing..." but decided I might not get to shoot it if I did and kept my yap shut. I know a guy who did so I know they're out there, but where do I find such strange and wonderful things? Shotgun news probably... Optics? We're pretty satisfied with my Reflex, but I don't think that's a good match. Besides, if we take that off my AR, what will I chase down rabbits and the neighbor's dog with? I'm thinking something with a high magnification to get me as far away from that damn drum as possible. You know, I might just have someone else pull the trigger on that and watch from a circling plane. :? For those who don't know, I made a comment in another discussion about shooting a gasoline filled 55 gallon barrel with and incediary .50 BMG round. Yes, I know... crazy punk kids.

Let's do it in Alberta, Goddamnit. I'm from there. Nobody will care unless you bring your horse-piss American beer North of the border. :p

The man with the largest er.. rifle, wins. Let's start the "Mel wastes kid's car with .50BMG for getting uppity on a date" fund. I'm assuming he has at least one daughter out of four.

Oh man... if I were only so lucky!! I have 3 daughters and 1 son. Honestly, they are all precious and I wouldn't trade them for anything! But older parents than I keep telling me I have trouble brewing when they become teenagers....??? Bah! not my little gems :wink:

Of course, I am looking forward to jumping out of the shrubs in my ghillie when the first boy comes over to pick up my daugher for a date. 8)

Mels living one of my fears...Daughters. I think I'll just go with the "Rapunzel" method. Nice tall tower.

Just lie right in the driveway Mel...wait until he is close enough to step on you and whisper "I know places they'd never find you"...or work on a convincing 1000 yard stare and sing jodies all the time. Cut meat at the table with a Ka-bar. All of those will make sure the guys who date em really do appreciate dating em lol.

My father already gave me carte blanche to do this, Thank God. It's the most fun I've ever had. You'll enjoy it more, I garuntee you.

This techinque requires a whole shitload of setup, but it is worth it. First, you need some airsofts (Everything I do except pissing somehow involves an airsoft, really), and then you need some Russian Spetsnaz gear. THen you need a car.

Wait until he's at the door. Then, screech to a halt behind him, dive out of the car, grab him, haul him into the backseat (Flexcuff him at some point along the way) all the while shouting in Russian. Drive off, then turn around, take off the Maskas (Balaclavas) and laugh heartily. Drive him back and tell him: "If we were serious, you'd be sinking to the bottom of this lake right now."

It helps if your friends speak Russian here as then you can mock him thoroughly and still communicate important things without switching to English. For example:
"Chto ya slushayu?" (What do I hear?)
"Militsii maschina!" (Police car!)
"GOVEDO!" (Oh ****!)

And suchlike.

These are so much easier and more effective.

this is an easy fix mel... just grab a 50BMG dummy round and hand it to the kid... then politely tell him to remember, youve got the gun that goes with that bullet.

How about if I also write the kids name on the round... just to bring the point "home".

I can't wait to grill the poor buggers also. Sit them down on the hard chair in my gun room and give them a full blown Operation Order:

"Situation: The enemy, you, have requested to accompany my daughter on an evening of entertainment.
Mission: To successfully return my daughter home pomptly by 2130 hours without so much as laying a finger on her.
Execution: You are to proceed directly to the mess hall by taking miller creek rd to hwy 93 and turning right into the parking lot. There is to be no delay escorting my daughter to the mess hall where you will let her order what ever she wants and pay for it. After said chow is served and consumed, you will escort my daughter directly home in the reverse route that you took to get there.
service/support: Your support team, me, will be monitoring the situation at all times via a 2-way mini mike attached to my daughters collar. With additional intelligence being provided by a network of intelligence personel located on site.
command and signal: We will synchronize watches now. The porch light will be on until promptly 2130 hours, at which time they will be shut off. If said porch lights are shut off when you return to base, that is a signal that task force daddy has been deployed and you will not survive the night.

Are there any questions? .... judging from your silence, I will assume you have committed this operation order to memory and a breif back is not required."

of course, full camo and face paint will be my attire.

I suspect that your experiment is just going to start a rather large grass fire, and not the explosion that you are dreaming of. I would suspect that you would have a good story to tell after it was all over though!
Yeah, you're probably right. I'll either need to use a different barrel filler or someone else's property. That way someone else would have an interesting story too.

I honestly didn't have anything to do with it your honor! Check with the Air Force or someone like that because I swear I saw a plane over head! I was being bombed!

EDIT: I forgot, I've got a little girl too; I think I like some of the ideas in regard to that.

Don't be a lazy bastard and do what I just did to clear the driveway of snow&ice.

Mix one part gasoline with three parts flour. Spread liberally over driveway.

Take out zippo lighter.

If I need to explain what happened next, you probably can't read this. In short:
- My legs are singed.
- I am probably missing a significant portion of skin from my face but haven't looked in the mirror.
- There is no ice, or snow, on my driveway.

It worked really well, but only if you like pain. Apparently your dexterity while wearing gloves suffers enough that you can accidentally spill some of this mixture on YOU as well as your driveway. Check before you flick. That's the motto.

The porch light will be on until promptly 2130 hours, at which time they will be shut off. If said porch lights are shut off when you return to base, that is a signal that task force daddy has been deployed and you will not survive the night.
Later, hunt him down and tap on his bedroom window with a KA-BAR.
"Hi, Bob."

The first Valentine's day my wife and I had together, I woker her up late at night by tapping on her bedroom window to try to get her slightly awake. I actually woker her up completely. I started playing acoustic guitar for her on the front porch. She thought it was a radio playing in the car of someone we'd had some trouble with. When she answered the door she told me that, then said "do you know how much you scared me?" and held up the KA-BAR I had loaned her in case that person did show up.

They're still there, not even smoke-blackened. If you'd like, I'll make a video of it next time.

"OK, and now we're spreading the mixture over the driveway."
*Five minutes later*
"And thus, flick the Bic."

Then it's ten minutes of me screaming and rolling around in snow in flames. Someone FedEx me a videocamera before I change my mind. :p

AK, save up for a plow man. I like having hair, ears and eyelids.

Kaz, I'm happy she didn't find an even quicker way to your heart. Straight through your breastbone with that Ka-bar

Don't reccommend a snow plow, other's misadventures are our entertainment. And needless to say I haven't loaned out any weaponry to the little woman since. And not that all this other stuff isn't fun :D , but I would eventually like some input on barrels and optics. I suppose it's my own fault though, I did kind of put something impossible to ignore in this. Maybe I'll put a separate thread for this other stuff: "Child Rearing and A Redneck Style Demise" :wink: What's a rednineck's last words? "Hey y'all, watch this!":
