To say the least about this weapon is the term awesome. When I first lay behind a Barrett I really did not know to expect. Once I squeezed that trigger I was was in love! The recoil of the weapon compared to my M-1 Garand . The round after round going down range to just under thousand meters and striking within a 30 inch bull was right off the scale for me. I pack it in the hard case and can slip it together in moments ;all ready to fire. I use a Leupold mounted BORS on her and it is a gas to change range and zero in... in seconds. Sweet , just plain sweet!!!i would love to have had her in Vietnam. As a scout sniper back then we had nothing anywhere close to this lady. Had the "Gunny" one of these he would would have scared the NVA and VC back into the tunnels never to pop their heads up again!!!
