will a barett 50cal dislocate your shoulder if you fired it without mounting it?
Actualy, i am in my local army shooting team, yes, i fire real guns for competitons! i fired a clip of barret .50cal, and .416, i saw a little difference between each other, the recoil was no so strong, i wont be able to fire it if im up, i need to crouch to get a respectable score... but i feeled same as fireing a mounted 50cal machine gun (a single shot) if you fire a barett 50cal stand up, you will be pushed to the back, but if your'e not a fag, you will be still stainding after a shot, maybe not 2 xD
the best alternative for 50 cal is aw50f, a modified british version of the l96a1, to eliminate muzzule flash and be able to hold .460cal bullets and 50cal, but, with a bifferent bolt, you can take regular ammuniotion., it show less acuracy, but is more reliable and smaller to cary on!
w/e, im just telling, my friend own both of them, the g17 is also quite no difference, just almost not noticable, i do, because i see alot details, and there is only one company that have the glock name, they have made alot models trought the past 15 years! so it is a g17, g18 may be your babe, but its not a g18 on the pic, google is not always right!
