    Here's A New Timber Harvesting Method

    Got some timber to clear on your property? You could use a chainsaw, but that's a lot of work.

    Use a mini-gun. It's a whole lot easier, not to mention the fun factor.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Actually, the Ma Deuce does a pretty fair job of reducing trees to kindling too.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Very Nice, I want a mini gun. all i get to play with is the M2. and MK-19. They should have tested both IMHO.

    2250 rounds in 45 seconds to cut down a pine tree.

    I wonder if you can write it of on your taxes if you have a Lumber business?

    During the early 70s the Army equiped an M114 APC with the real deal Vulcan 20mm like the F-4 Phantoms had. Used it against bunkers in Nam. The tree cutting time with that would have been about 5 seconds.

    Go to the manufacturer's web site and look at the videos there. Those mini guns are incredible to see fired at night.

    That's what I was thinking.
    Sure looked like great fun though.
