To be ignored by Presidential decree
I well remember the first time I sat down behind a tripod mounted Ma Duece and pressed that butterfly trigger. (I was a tanker, we didn't mess with tripod mounted anything, but I was a fish out of water in this case.) Shook fillings loose. I was especially pleased about it because I had figured out the repair it needed where several more experienced people had failed. Also because we had a dental plan and I could get the fillings redone. Watching .50 BMG tracers just KEEP GOING down range at night was oddly pleasing to me. I'm guessing that MG-42 was a real experience also. That's some rate of fire there.
You could always tell when the MG42 was being fired. It was even better when someone ponied up for a 100 round belt.
Now we just need to get the law changed so ordinary people in Iowa can own NFA toys. Personally, I'm looking for a 105mm Howitzer to tow behind my M35A2, but it needs to be in usable condition.
