That's interesting.  In .... 2004?  2005? ... somewhere around then, anything in .50 BMG became an "assault weapon" and couldn't be registered. 

OH!!!

Got it - it is the lower that is the "weapon." So the UPPER is legal.  Keeping this stuff straight can be confusing.  Which, of course, is the intent.  That way more people may accidentally break the law.

Sorry to get your hopes up Joe, but it just occurred to me that with the new PRoK ammo laws you couldn't buy ammo for it.

The muzzle blast/flash would be like that of a M109 howitzer.  It isn't a pleasant experience to be occupying a privy located in the muzzle blast area of a M109 during a fire mission.  Been there done that!

Didn't know what to substitute for a "T" at the end of a four letter word. :o
