Well..my dream has just came true. I went target shooting down at the shooting club and a guy showed up with his 50 cal BMG. I couldnt take my eyes off the thing. The guy asked if I ever shot one and I told him no, so he set me down and let me shoot it a few times, it made my week! You ought to see what it can do at 500 yards, WOW!

When I was in Vietnam I was a Huey door gunner. Our job was to lay a smoke screen down along the treelines in front of the incoming troops ships by dumping JP4 into the chopper's exhaust. After a while we got tired of getting shot up so I put another free gunner on my side with an M-60 , cobbled together a dual M-60 mount for my self and in addition to the crew chief having an M-60 on the other side of the ship, we traded the navy for a 50 cal. from one of their river boats. That 50 was awesome. It had a range of around 5 miles, though we used it much closer up. Every time a bunker was found we'd load up the armor piercing and chunk away at the bunker until they came out or stayed in permanently. When that baby went off the concussion would slap all the free dust and whatever against your face and sting like hell. We never did get shot down again after those mods.

Our perimeter was protected with quad 50's and Dusters 75 yds apart-they could kick up some real estate too.

Never servered in Vietnam (too young at the time) But I did pull 7 years in the Marines, one job of which was a Primary Marksman Instructor. You name it, and I have probably shot it, detonated it, or destroyed it. All I have to add to this topic is for those of you who were there...THANKS FOR YOUR SACRIFICE!

Hey carolina
When were you in? I was in from late 86 to early 92 as an engineer, "read grunt with and education" Ditto on your feelings for the viet nam guys. Just don't forget about us that played in the desert for lower gas prices.... (ungrateful bastards!!!) don't let me get of on a rant about kuwaitis and suadis.....

Uuaana.....88 to 95 Decided to get out when a Captain I worked for in 92 said "What are ya gonna do with yer life" He told me get interested in computers etc..etc..etc..I wonder if he realized just how big of an impact he made for my life to come. Sometimes you wish you could find those people again just to say thanks.
