Basically ... never argue with a girl holding a minigun ...

3000 round a minute at .50c a round would be $1500 a minute to run. I doubt I could afford to run one.

I think I need a better job!

Where can you get a .50BMG cartridge for 50cent? They are $4 to $6 a pop.

you left out a zero, it's $15.000.

One day, someone will get 8x .50 Calibre Machine guns, mount them like they were in the P-47 and shoot at some metal equivalent to a 109 or 323, and see just what damage it can do.

Now that would be interesting to see!
