    Oh, that would be fun, can I mount it on the roof of my truck canopy and have a slave switch in the cab?

    John h.

    I SAID, get out of the left lane, slow poke!

  4. doug says:

    Mighty spendy 10 secs of autofire. But who cares…..

  5. al says:

    OK now I’ve got an erection!

  6. Alemaster says:

    Lots of people would put their heads down when we showed up with the XM-21s. OTOH, lots would shoot back too. regards, Alemaster

    That one killed a young girl at Knob Creek one year. It rocked back under fire and fell off the truck and hit her in the head. Died of a brain injury iirc.

    But fuck is it fun to watch going off.

    btw Kenny, you MUST go to a Knob Creek Shoot before you die. You are practically next door. Go on Fridays or late Sundays for the gunshow deals, but you MUST put up with the crowd on 1 Saturday and see a night shoot. Trust me, you Must.

    Just checked my stock of 7.62×51, I can shoot that beast for 10 seconds assuming 5k per gun per minute. I’ll pass.

  9. Heltau says:

    That is defiantly a money eating machine.
    Looks like a whole lot of fun, no matter what the cost.

  10. singlestack says:

    I couldn’t afford to feed it. That thing shoots at a rate of SHDPM (several hundred dollars per minute).

  11. B says:

    IIRC, Gatling Guns are legal.

    Dunno about powered ones though.

    They are, I am sure, expensive to feed.

    • Andrew says:

      Hand cranked Gatlings are legal as each barrel is a gun by itself. The rear body holds a slide system wherein the firing pin mechanism is pulled back, ejecting the spent casing, loads a new one, then snaps the firing pin forward and repeat.

      Bullshit movies always have a guy remove 1 firing pin. Whooptie-doo. That only leave X-1 barrels working, where X is the number of overall barrels.

      But…. Hook up an electric motor to your hand-cranked Gatling and you have now committed a crime (unless you’ve got that tax stamp and paperwork.)

      As to feeding the beast, well, a hand-cranked .45-70 caliber Bulldog Colt Gatling (available for sale as a whole unit or kit) will put 400-600 rounds down range a minute, if you can keep the feedhopper loaded. Current cheap .45-70 runs about $1.50 a round. So, yeah, a quick way to turn money into smoke. Even if one reloads.

  12. Whynot says:

    At roughly 9k rounds per minute (for the group), I can’t afford the ammunition……

  13. paulb says:

    Who cares if you can afford it. Would be a lane clearing beast even without being loaded. Who would try you with that mounted visibly on a truck. Use blanks and scare the crap out of anyone around.

  14. Skip says:

    The recoil could push start my truck.

  16. willi says:

    Get. The Fuck. OFF. My. Lawn.

  17. Tsquared says:

    I just wish I could afford a 10 minute sustained burst.

  18. AlphaDelta says:

    Love it. Couldn’t afford to feed it.

  19. DennisinIowa says:

    Winstons right. The triple mini was owned by Kent Lomont.
    Kenny you must go to Knob Creek.

  20. Sanders says:

    That would take care of a coyote.
