Indoor Range Fun: I was whisked away at a moments notice to go have some fun shooting various restricted firearms. This was my first time ever shooting a handgun, and it was a ton of fun even though my performance was below expectations. I also had the joy of shooting a Barret Model 99 which was chambered in .50 BMG, which is about as big as they get when it comes to individual carry firearms. Larger than this and you are really into the anti-tank and artillery realm.
I must say, even though its expensive to shoot, I would highly recommend everyone try a .50BMG rifle at least once to get a feel for the raw power of such a large cartridge.
