  3. I think a .50 would be unlikely to bring down an airliner, unless a tracer round happend to strike one of the fuel tanks. Could probably do the same with a 30.06, or similar rifle round, with a tracer. Getting close enough while an aircraft approaches on final, or shortly after take off would not be much of a challenge, but striking jet fuel would be quite unlikely, IMHO.

    I'm not worried about giving any potential terrorists ideas; I'm sure the scenario has been proposed and dismissed.

    The real threat, as all know, are shoulder fired heat-seeking missles.

    As I was saying (in faux-joisey patois), the 50BMG round was such a dismal failure as an anti-aircraft weapon that the US Army dropped the quad-50 as an anti-aircraft weapon in the 60s. A lone 50bmg gunner with a bolt-action weapon is so unlikely to hit an aircraft, it's laughable.
  5. b coo ll on my pikup trk, tho. :D
