There is nothing on earth like belt fed weapons:
7.62 GPMG ?
Yep. M249 saw with a 150 round belt makes a bloody good door opener.
I prefer the 40mm HE belt fed type, more bang for your buck. Taliban do not like HE!
Geez here we go again – it’s like boys talkin’ about how big their car engine is…..
My one is a BIG GRUNTA.
Oh Neil, please forgive us for commenting on a post about weapons with comments about weapons. How completely misguided of us. As for car engine sizes, I couldn’t really care, my vehicle is for getting me from A to B
So for my benefit – can you please advise how and where the common New Zealand citizen can use one of these pieces of kit?
Join a gun club. Heaps of fun.
Unfortunately I don’t believe the MSSA class firearms license caters to belt fed weapons and certainly not to grenade machine guns. Best bet would be to join your local TF army unit, but even then all you would get to use would be the 5.56mm LSW C9. To use the real big boys (7.62mm to 25mm) you would have to join one of the regular force battalions
That’s true Hanno. I am ex Navy so still have access to the range on “club days”. You need a collector / dealer endorsement.
Neil, if you ask Whale nicely he might put an article about women’s shoes if your lucky.
You what???? I was simply making a point about where the hell can guys like me get to play – Thanks GregM for informing me I shoulda been in the Navy – now that’s a whole different can of worms….LOL!!!!
At least this makes more sense than Sphincter or Phil Ure.
Opps, hit the wrong key, new to doing this an nervous about palying with the big boys…anyway, what I wanted to say was that I watched Act of Valour last night and the boat extraction scene was a brilliant example of a belt fed weapon scene. had to rewind and watch again it was that good
