    The new self defense .50 BMG

    Here is my shiny new rifle. Its a bolt action 10 shot .50 BMG.

    I have a total of 430 dollars in it.

    I think its kind of cute.

    What do you think?



    It weighs 24 pounds and wears a Leupold Mk4 Tactical Mildot.
    Just the thing for these pesky coyotes around here.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    First thought, the BG's must really be upgrading tactics in your area.

    Second thought: how do you only have $430 in that?

    Well lets see...
    the barrel blank cost 140.
    the 10 shot Barrett magazine cost 145.
    the "Limbsaver"recoil pad was 40.
    the AR-15 lower parts kit was 60
    the 4130 DOM tubing costs 35
    and the springs and rubber feet cost 10.

    The scope I took in a trade...so I didnt really count that but its a $1200 scope.
    And I didnt count the six months it took me to build it.

    Well, I will admit...
    that it will be used for CoyDogs too.

    They are a lot bigger than Coyotes.

    The front view...



    You'll notice that the barrel is free floated.The carry handle is made of Walnut and flips out of the way when not used.

    I think II'll take one for $430, please! That's my scope's big brother, nice stuff. What'd you trade for it, if you don't mind my asking? Must've been something reaaaally nice. I wish I could get that in a trade...
