    Re: I'm supposed to stay out of BARS!

    Love the BAR and the Colt.

    Knew a guy with a FFL manufacturing license. He had a club with a 300 yard range. He had a lot of class III stuff and if you bought his ammo, he'd let you shoot it.

    I put 3 mags thru his BAR off the bipod. That was sweet. Think it was the 2nd model and had the slower full auto rate.
    “After all is said and done, successful rifle shooting on the range is nothing more than first finding a rifle and lot of ammunition which will do precisely the same thing shot after shot, and then developing the same skill in the rifleman.” ~ Capt. E. C. Crossman (The Book of the Springfield)

    I believe the Marine had their BAR's converted to fire at a slower rate (450 rounds pm) then the other service branches.
