    The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention which has been praised and denounced... Served hero and villain alike... And carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history.

    Any good for wood chuck and ground hog? We have a bit of a problem with them, here
    Doesn't matter, anymore. We're only good for filling sandbags for floods and saving people during winter storms. Other-wise we're kicking posts and crazies who are over worked, over taxed, underpaid and never truly appreciated.

This new Cadex rifle may be an indication that quality ammo for the original caliber must be coming available too.

    It's cool, but where's the artillery definition line? Asking for a friend.

    20mm tends to be the cut off between what's considered "small arms" and going into auto-cannons and beyond.

    You would expect that ammo would be readily available or in the works before spending the money to tool up for production of a rifle like this
    If it's either loud, obnoxious, fast, hated by the general population or any combination of these, I OWN IT!!
