50's are F'n sweet. I shot an armalite .50 last night that is supposed to have a 1 ft grouping at 1-1.5 miles easily. The gun was heavy as hell though so it didn't kick all that bad :tup:

:scared: Why'd it make fire like that :lol: :oops:
He shot a propane tank, and apparently it didn't blow up, it just punctured it and cause a spark which ignited the gas which is blowing out the side, which was pressurized.. that was cool :lol:

My dad works with a guy whose son is a ranger. He uses a .50 cal. He got scopeeye with it the first time shot it.. that had to hurt :scared:

no what they are is a tracer round it is like a flair. mainly used at night time shooting to see were you are hitting your target .when you shot them you can see them all the way to the target .like a comet with a big tail.

Yes, but they are also armor peircing.
Cool fact.. anybody ever seen pictures of the 50 cals on planes or tanks shooting at night, with tracers? It looks like an almost solid stream of bullets.. but there is a tracer in 1 out of 5 bullets.. so tracer, normal, normal, normal, normal, tracer... Just showing how fast they shoot :scared:

That was actually really really lame. I would have thought it would have been a substantially larger "boom". Guess not...... :(

I was in the navy and we had a night shoot, so I got to see it live. Its pretty cool, pretty loud too. The seals had little Uzi looking guns too, called Tech 9's or something like that. They were shoooting tracer rounds with them too, very cool!!!!

"using standard armor piercing, incendiary tracers..." Incendiary means the shell itself is explosive, which is what lit the propane after the shell itself pierced the tank.

Yeah, that's what I meant :oops: I just didn't say it right. Incendiary nonetheless.

I never realized how much a bullet can ricochet until I went on a night shoot in the Marines. It really makes you think especially when you're out hunting.
