    We'll never mind. For some reason the pic is in .png instead of.jpg and the forum won't take it. So by the rules of life,,,, it never happened.

    Nice pieces!

    Didn't even know there was such an animal. I had an early AR-50 and that darned thing was 37 pounds!

    Very nice toy.

    Here is the spent 50 Cal (50 BMG) round I picked up over the weekend on a stroll in Dorset Southern England. This is rather unusual to find over here. Would anyone care to guess where I was strolling?

    Oh I also picked up this rather unusual 10mm spent round (top in pic below) with no rifling. Is it a form of SLAP penetrator does anyone know?

    Well I would hope it was:
    a) Lulworth firing ranges
    b) Bovington Tank Camp

    But given the question it was probably the beach at Kimmeridge :)

    Spot on with your first guess. Both found actually on the public footpath from Lulworth to Kimmeridge on the section directly above the target vehicles, illustrates well why they need to close the path when firing. To be frank, it was my walking companion, an former Army officer who spotted them, I was busy taking in the scenery. It is apparent that once you have served in somewhere like Iraq or Afghanistan you develop the unconscious habit of watching were you step which seemingly never leaves you. Can't think why.

    I figured a military range being in England. When I was in Special Boat Unit XI the Navy had a shooting range in San Pablo Bay not far from Mare Island Naval base were are unit was located. We had to put picket boats out to keep civilian boats out of the area when we went there for a gun shoot. We would put in 50 gal. drums in the water as targets the PBR's and MATC's carried 50 cal. and M-60's a lot harder hitting a target moving on the water. A 50 round has a max range of four miles so why the picket boats to keep civilians out. Dam they were a bummer to clean the PBR's had a twin 50 gun tub in front had a solenoid on the receiver you plug a wire in with a button to push to fire then another 50 mount in the back then seven hard mounts to rotate guns around on the MATC's. You used what we called a timing gauge a no-go and fire after you put the barrel on you screwed it until you heard three clicks you did it wrong the dam gun could blow up in your face. Weird been retired from the Navy since 2002 and still remember that stuff.

    Picked this one up at Camp Perry in 1997...wow time flies. Added scope and bipod later but its an honest 1/2moa shooter. Wish I still had my original NRA competition rifle...got into real long range (1000yd+) after that. Even tried out for the USA Shooting team in 2003. Sadly I was already old enough that eyes were beginning to go...couldn't hold clear target image long enough. Like many things when you're young, you think you will always have time. Word to the younger folks on this site, if there is something you want to do that only only a young person can do, do it now! M21 1.JPG

    Like that M-14 when on the security alert force aboard ship in the 1980's that was still the standard rifle aboard ship for security plus the Remington 870 shot gun and 1911 pistol. Also the gunners mates used the M-14 to shoot the shot line over to the receiving ship during unrep. It would shoot a rubber plug with a line on it over to the receiving ship to pull the messenger line over a long story I will stop now hard to explain.

    No need to explain mate.

    The messenger was the easiest to haul in, a seventeen year old rawbone could do it.

    After that the lines just got bigger and heavier. And that was in the days of man winches (thirty men along the stbd catwalk hauling huge rope!)
