Alexandria Arms .50 Beowulf

Its my favorite, because, for one, its just badass. i mean a M16/AR15 shooting a .50 cal round?

for two, it adds a lot of versatility to the M16/AR15. you could probably shoot through a tank with it.

AKM, more commonly known as the AK-47.

"Of all the weapons in the vast soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It'll shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, even a child can use it; and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars. "

I like the Dragunov sniper riffle, the M134D Gatling gun and Stinger Missile Launcher

Folding Knives or Fixed Blade (small size) knives for practical purposes. Self defense, various minor household tasks (boxes/mail/etc) and so forth. Personally, I'm a fan of SoG blades.

As far as firearms, I would LOVE a M403. Starts as a Remington 700 bolt-action and gets a few tweaks courtesy of the USMC. I just like rifles. <_<

For a handgun, I wouldn't mind an ArmaLite 24-15C. Nice, simple 9mm handgun.

While I know what those weapons are, you might want to label them.

I like the word gatling gun a lot better than mini gun for those as there is nothing mini about them. I wonder how the term mini gun came to be? I should look it up.

After spending around two hours in the woods over the weekend, I realized the need for a machete. After researching it I decided on a Tramontina 14 Inch Bolo one. I plan to get more as time passes in other makes, models, and styles.

Maybe it wasn't really noticed until a movie or show came out that showed some huge dude carrying it around, making it look mini?

I looked it up and they are referred to as a "minigun" due to being developed as a smaller version of the M61 'Vulcan' 20mm cannon.

I also received my machete a few days ago and had the chance to use it today. It's pretty cool and I love the sound it makes when you chop off a branch or similar but I feel like it's kind of dull. The description did state that it would require further sharpening for a fine edge but I assumed it would be sharp enough... Guess not. Looks like I'll have to look up how to do it properly.

Edit: I just found out I could have ordered it from another place who for not much more fixes all of the factory shortcomings (Including sharpening) before shipping them out. I should have ordered from them to begin with. *Facepalm* I'll probably end up ordering another one from this new place and keeping this one as a backup / something to practice sharpening on. It's not like it was that expensive.
