    Lot'sa Bullets

    I'm not normally a huge fan of high capacity handguns holding lot'sa bullets. This however, appears to be a proper application of large quantities of ammo.

    Lots of possibilities for such equipment. Would be the thing for rabbit hunting, pass shooting for waterfowl, and turning cement trucks into giant rotating sieves.

    Some of those clips are from Dillon's classic "Firestorm in the Desert" movie. Lotsa bullets is right - 3000 rounds per minute from the minigun!

    Mike Dillon's story (perhaps apocryphal?) is that he was willed a Thompson SMG by an older friend who passed away. Mike took possession and started shooting it, but the volume of ammo required for full enjoyment of the gun, plus the cost thereof, got him into reloading. He was quickly turned off by the slowness and clumsiness of the available reloading equipment, so as a tool and die maker he set out to build the better mousetrap, and succeeded.

    Dillon is in nearby Scottsdale, and most of those videos were shot within 30 miles of here. A young associate at work is connected to the Dillon family and has gone out on a few of their shoots. Last year he sent around pictures from a shoot... Dillon had mounted a minigun on a British army tank and hosed a junked Buick. I only saw still photos, but the damage was impressive!
