Should I?

I'm really tempted. I believe I can afford it.

Yeah seriously, what in the world would you do with it? And define affording it. Is that along with selling the M16?

If not, I'd rather sell the m16, combine the case, and put the money into something like an M60 but that's just me.

No, my machine guns would be staying.

I have a hand full of classic cars, couple old drag cars, and some bikes.

The origional plan was to get rid of a car for the m16 but I just sold some of my unused guns instead.

Looking at this one also, alittle more compact than the US gun so I'd not have to build a garage for it. 800lbs vs 2500lbs.

Dunno about anything as of yet... Just musing right now. I've always wanted one though, live firing or not. It would be alot like my m2hb, a conversation piece that would set in my garage and be shot once a year if that.

Gotcha. I think it's badass, but I have zero clue where I could even shoot that damn thing. I mean, it has to shoot a few miles if you guck up somehow while aiming it, and its not exactly indestructive. How about munitions for it?

I've always had a thing for cannons. Got a hand full of small desk top black powder guns.

I'm really liking the bofors for its size but its in NV and he will not ship so thats a deal breaker for me. The price is not bad at all, ammos tough to get and rather pricey so it would be more of a display piece.

Luckly if I do go for one theres a local tank museam that I could loan it to for storage.

I like the l60 bofors, probably out of my price range though.

That thing is pretty sweet!

And the guy won't ship the bofors? Kinda limits his market, don't you think? What an idiot.

Especially with it being a NFA item. It pretty much limits it to instate transfers only. I know my dealers not going to travel across country to pick it up.

I wonder if the ring could be removed and shipped to my dealer on those. I know you can do it with the larger guns.
