That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

Not considering any other superfluous and extraneous factors, a Barrett .50 cal API to engine block will pretty much do the deed.

Probably wouldn't even need AP, API or even APIT ammo. Ball will suffice I would think.

Your time was better spent driving; well done! In aviation, there is a saying the often applies elsewhere...in an emergency, "Aviate, Navigate, Communicate"...the idea is, do those things in that order! Sounds like just keeping the car on the road was the important thing to do...crashing your car trying to get a shot off would have done the truckers job for him!
