I would love to shoot one of those at least once myself !That is SWEET!!
Where can I pick one up?
I'm a big fan of the .762 in my opinion it is close to the perfect weapon.
Ammunition is very inexpensive, I pay around $200.00 per 1,000 rounds. or .40 cents per shell.
They are very light weight and highly accurate. I can usually put two in the same hole at 300 yards. Very little recoil so they are perfect for women and young people.
They are the ultimate for target shooting, hunting, and even home protection.
I don't have a "full-auto" permit, but if I could get something like this, I may consider applying for one. But at 3,000 rounds per minute, (50 per second) it would be very cost prohibitive to play with.
......I suppose if I ever need to cut a barn door in half real fast, this would be the perfect tool for the job!
Vex; IN all fairness, I mentioned many ways that this device can be used and I don't believe that "mass-murder" was on my list.Also optional is delighting in the tools of mass murder.
I was wondering about that too. My AR gets hot after 20 rounds with a pause between each. From the video, I don't see any sort of a cooling mechanism.I'd like to know how they keep the barrels from melting.
I think I saw that program too. I was quoting a recent article in our local newspaper. I also remember seeing a program on TV about a famous battle that was lost against the indians. There was a real puzzle as to why bows and arrows won over rifles. After surveying the battlefield and collecting a lot of metal fragments they determined that the problem was that the rifle barrels got hot after several rounds were fired and the guns were jamming. A skilled archer can get a lot of shots off in a minute with a bow and arrow. I saw Howard Hill shoot years ago and it was fabulous what he could do. Wish I could remember the battle - maybe it will come to me.I was watching a program, I think on the military channel, about modern snipers.
These men and women were firing at a range of over 2 1/2 miles.
I have never attempted to fire at a distance like that.
They have to take not only rise and drop into consideration, but the wind may be blowing to the right, for the first 3/4 mile, and in the opposite direction, or not at all the remainder.
The spotters are critical in helping the shooter determine the best scope settings.
It is really amazing how much training and dedication it takes to accomplish a task like that.
Most people just think you put the cross hairs on the target and pull the trigger and fail to appreciate exactly how much skill is involved.

It would seem that the rotation of the 6 barrels at rapid speed through the air would might with cooling. That and we do not know what those barrels are made of.I was wondering about that too.
