I was a Teenage War Profiteer

The most amazing story I've read in a long time:

The Stoner Arms Dealers: How Two American Kids Became Big-Time Weapons Traders

How a couple of dudes from Miami became international arms dealers.

long-range semi auto

For lazy bastards who don't like to manually cycle an action, or worse: us lazy left-handers who have difficulty finding left-handed weaponry... semi-auto rifles do the trick.

But what if you want to reach out far, say 1000 or 1500 yards.

What are your options?

There's the 13 pound, "bantam-weight" 6061 billet aluminum receiver Bad News by Noreen in .338 Lapua chambering, AR-stye for Black Gun enthusiasts.

At somewhere south of $5K for the basic package, you might even fool your wife into thinking it's affordable.

another option is the Cobb/Bushmaster platform, though examples are few and far between. Good luck finding one.

And in the same weight/price class, the beefy-looking RND 2000, also chambered in 338 Lapua.

Last up, and in a class of it's own, this 18 pound beast looking more like a BAR hunting rifle on steroids - the VR1 from the guy who makes the Windrunner 50.

The maker claims they are "THE MOST BAD ASS RIFLES ON PLANET EARTH!"

Just shy of 8 grand to buy this thing. Available in many different chamberings starting from unnecessary up to super-obnoxious.

Git summ!

badass big bore airguns

Sitting on the sidelines and letting Korean manufacturers and independant gunsmith Dennis Quackenbush create a market for big bore air rifles, Crosman now steps in with a high-tech masterpiece: the Rogue

a .357 caliber revolver-magazine rifle with electronic trigger.

As the air pressure gets lower in its reservoir, a microprocessor automatically adjusts a valve to keep the Point-Of-Impact from dropping.

Available around Christmas time 2011.
