.50 BMG Suppressor

posted on January 16, 2012

To go with its recently introduced M107A1, Barrett is now offering a suppressor for the Big 50. Although it does reduce the noise to a certain extent, the biggest benefits are a dramatic decrease in muzzle blast and concussion. We gave it a try today at a pre-SHOT Show range event and were impressed. Big bite, little bark--relatively speaking. Shooting a .50 BMG has never been so pleasant!

What Are Witness Marks?

I just became the proud owner of a single-shot pistol I found at the local gun shop. I intend to use it for target practice and maybe even hunting once I get good enough.

Word to the wise: This exercise is not for the inexperienced shooter or for those who have yet to cultivate those essential, comprehensive, ambidextrous-shooting skills.
