    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul.

    I love when those guys show up, it's expensive, but worth it lol I was surprised the MP40 sounded the same as it does in the movies. I never realized how slow the M3 was. Shooting the Thompson was the best one for me so far, I was surprised how much muzzle climb there is on that.

    Now that was cool! I bet your still grinning from ear to ear.
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    The BAR is the one that almost had me walking backwards. Full auto 30-06 is mean!

    The first serious thought that ran through my mind after shooting was about the MG42 and Normandy. This weapon is absolutely devastating. After firing one I can't imagine having to cross any distance with a number of these guns set up in crossfire kill zones raining down. Not to mention mines and mortars. To say these men had courage is an understatement!

    Never had a 30 cal and long ago sold my grease gun, but have all the others + Bren Gun u. MP 43 to shoot. Have been known to take the heard out and burn up some $$$!
