Thump, thump, thump is an understatement. That gun is freaking' awesome to shoot. Went to the gun shoot by Ft. Knox a few years back. Was able to rent the gun ($50 for 30 minutes) and buy ammo. I want to say it was $2 a round. A buddy and I split the $150 bill. I think we actually spent less than 10 minutes firing the gun.

We had an old tank and jeep as targets.I couldn't keep it on target,it would ride up and to the right every time.Was exciting watching it go through the jeep and trees though.:crazy:
