    Cameraman walked right in front of the "unsafe end" with a chambered round.

    That's Paul of Heavy Metal Outdoors here in Cannon county. He owns a muffler and auto repair shop, but he had a stroke and has a hard time working on cars. He has slowly transformed it into a gun store.
    He is the dad of my son's friend.
    I don't know how he would walk in front of that thing. Maybe the stroke affected subtle parts of his reasoning.

    That seems to be very nice metalwork.

    Nice MG. Too bad it isn't still capable of the original 1200 rpm buzzsaw action.

    Well he's too young and handsome to enjoy prison so he always stays legal.

    I wasn't trying to be smartass, it's a very nice build...and he is a good-looking kid.

    I've always wanted to own an unf#cked-with German MG-42 but the $40,000+ price tag has always gotten in the way of that particular dream.

    Oh I know. I was being funny, and yes he wishes he could rebuild it back to its original function.
