    Hi all. Have a question. In the market for a 50 BMG. Found a place in Del Rio, Texas that has this weapon. Has anybody ever had any dealings with this place. Would like to know if its worth a road trip to buy from this place or person. Sorry , can't remember the name of the store. Thanks for the help.

    A name would help. There are several large suppliers in that area. LTS

    Is the Barrett the one that's a five shot SA?

    I saw one one time I think at a show for like $5000...

    Impressive as heck though...

    I still want to buy a Boys AT rifle someday and have it rechambered for .50 BMG. Supposed to be an easy conversion, and you can use the 5 round magazine.

    I think it's neat how things come around. The Boys was pretty worthless as an AT gun in WWII, but it had some fame as a long range "Hard Target Interdiction" (the "new" name of the .50 BMG snipers) rifle in Greece, and as an anti-personnel weapon in the rocks, where the AP round striking stone caused lots of rock splinters.

    Then the Marine Raiders carried it on the Makin Island raid, and one Raider disabled an Emily flying boat that was trying to take off, at long range, with three shots.

    I guess what goes around, comes around...

    There's nothing new under the sun...
