just like any other gun...if you can find a store that carries them you can buy one off the shelf just like any other rifle. If you order one online, it will have to go through a dealer as well.

Or if you find on for sale by private party you are gtg as well.

Steps to buying:

  1. Travel to nearest bank and extract large amounts of cash (likely without the approval of significant other)
  2. Withdraw more cash to pay for ammo, optics, etc.
  3. Drive to outskirts of town to find a retailer that carry's said .50 bmg (Keith's is the only placye i've seen them)
  4. Spend the next six months finding an outdoor spot to sight in and fire .50 cal bmg
  5. Make posts on this website wondering why local ranges don't allow them
  6. Place rifle in safe never to be used again

Personally I want one, but seem too impractical.

The usual outdoor spots like brown's camp, salmonberry, and other should be fine. Why *don't* most ranges allow them anyway? Douglas Ridge has a 1000yd rifle range that would be pretty cool to practice on. Is it just the noise? Surely it doesn't penetrate all the way through the hills/berms.

Unless you're referring to a machine gun and just failed to provide that little bit of information, I'd question whether or not you *should* own a .50.

No, that one was pretty directed.

Anyway, I already own mine. And I bought mine in Oregon from the best shop to buy them from. Or any rifle, for that matter.

haha - I keep hearing nightmare stories about that place. I almost want to visit to see the carnival.

Seriously, though, I buy my long guns from Sully @ Blackwater Tactical.

Wants and practicality rarely go hand-in-hand. When I brought my M107 home I got the, "why do you need something like that?" My response was, "I don't need it. I want it. Totally different animal."

Just like I didn't need to buy another AR-type rifle, but I wanted one, so......yeah.

I think they have two semi-automatic 50's at Sporty's in Clatskanie Oregon. I have seen him bring in Barrett's and Bushmaster...Good luck!
