I wanna fire a Barrett . I wanna destroy cinder blocks at 3/4 mile. I have a need.
Legal to purchase in every state but California.
Ahnoldt banned them even though nobody in the state owned one. What a retard. A Barrett .50 costs about $7000 to start...and they are very heavy. Not exactly a criminals choice, or even a terrorist's for that matter. And yes, Achmed, they do kick.
FYI Barrett designed a California legal version of this gun, in .48 I believe, just to piss off the stupid lawmakers. Barrett is the ONLY manufacture of .50 BMG guns. So, this CA law looks like a personal vendetta against a single company or owner thereof.
