It is a pointless device to get through cartridges very quickly without hitting anything!

I don't think it really has a purpose. I would guess someone just wanted to make it.

What's its purpose? To have lawful legal fun. And why not. Unlike so many pointless marathon races with road closures no one has been inconvenienced.

Which is purpose enough even if the technical challenge of making a belt fed 12 Bore machine gun weren't sufficient enough purpose in itself. As solving that is in itself a useful purpose that may have an application for, say, firing 12 Bore flares of some other 12 Bore projectile such as "Ferret" rounds.

But if we question that if a thing has no usable "purpose" then we should form a line to have our motor vehicles fitted with speed limiters to 75mph.

Sometimes I worry about some people in the shooting world. And when I see things like that film I understand why some of the general public worry about people having guns.

Handy if it fired rubber bullets at folks cramming themself on our beaches 🤣😂

Exactly. Not all 12 Bore cartridges contain lethal shot or lethal slug.

Sometimes when I was in the USA I had great difficulty in understanding the mind set.  My friends took us out one day and set a very dead javelina on top of a plastic can full of what they called tannerite. They then invited one of our party to shoot the can.  The result was a relatively mild explosion which blew the javelina in the air ... in pieces.  We stood and looked with little emotion, our Texan friends where leaping about cheering and shouting.  Why I don't know.  Vive la difference as the saying goes or very close.

Why not I’m sure the person had fun playing with it 

it’s a design and engineering challenge for some  

and some people just like things that go bang 

 

like anything to some people it’s stupid and boring to others it’s great fun 

some people on here need to have a word with themselves and lighten up a little and realise just cause they don’t approve or like it don’t mean it’s wrong  

not breaking laws not hurting anyone there’s no problem!

Or non-lethal use against maritime pirates in the Gulf Of Aden.

I've been watching a lot of pig 'hunting' (loosely saying hunting) vids on youtube from texas. I reckon that would come in handy. Honestly I've never seen such mental pests

I can think of a few close quarter battle (CQB) drills I could use it for.

Spray and pray in the jungle, where contacts can take place at as little as 10 yards. Point man, one belt and run👍

Other than military activities I see no UK use.

Too many stoppages and ammo feed sensitive, still needs some work.

 

Linked thereafter to video I have seen before, belt fed 22lr doing a 1000 rounds without an issue.

Why are some of you scared to admit we shoot for fun and we enjoy it.

You might not like my wife and I may not, yours- but at the end of the day we got married to people we love.

Some people will only ever enjoy punching paper, some clays, some hunt and some run round a field with a shotgun doing battle with ‘falling plates’ .... each to their own and live n let live ( as opposed to James Bond Live n let Die which I believe was Moore’s first outing)
