    Built this up before the CA ban in 2004 kicked in, because you never know what the future holds. Haven't used it much since because it's kinda useless and no ranges let you play, but maybe I can get a few likes out of it. ALS 50BMG upper on a single shot DMPS lower, nightforce 12-42x56.

    Over-penetration is a problem, not recommended for home defense. Except against aliens, those guys are tough.

    I think the blast from the brake alone would do enough damage for most situations.

    That's for mice correct! Will Frontline let you shoot? They go out to 1000 yards. You can shoot it at Outer Banks Gun Club, but they only go out to 100 yards and 10 round limit for 50s. They tear up the berm big time.

    You wouldn't happen to have an old Toyota Hi-Lux we could mount it in?

    Can you imagine Ruan’s single shot with the suppressor instead of that muzzle brake?

    This one isn't too bad. I had him change up the brake, told him I was really recoil sensitive (which isn't false). The first brake he designed actually pushed the gun forward and blew the shooter's hat / ear pro off. Funny, but no. This one just blows crap all over anyone standing to either side on the firing line. I can live with that.
