    Well, after ordering in September 07, paying in January 08 (after requesting to get a MkII rather than a MkI), my "number" finally came up. My BOHICA FAR-50 MkII .50 BMG (also known as "flipping the bird at .gov before the elections") is soon to be a reality. www.bohicaarms.com

    Here's a review of the MkI model (MkII's have quite a few design upgrades like a better brake, a lot more steel parts, etc) http://www.longrangesupply.com/images/bohica/review.htm

    Got an email from Chris Rosequist, the owner, on Saturday that my upper is on its way.

    Here's some "teaser" pics of how mine will be set up, however, I'll be using a standard A2 stock.

    I'll mount my 30" barrelled upper on an A2 lower...decided to use the A2 stock ranter than my Magpul PRS so I can fill the stock cavity with lead...that will add almost 4 more pounds to the weight of the rifle to help reduce perceived recoil. I have a Burris TACII 3-9x scope to start with...will go with higher magnification and more MOA of adjustment when I find someplace with longer ranges to stretch the rifles legs. Burris Tactical 6-screw high rings. I'm using the standard fire control parts with a Wolff heavy hammer spring to ensure good primer ignition. 100 rounds of M33 ball await.

    With any luck, I'll have everything put together by March 14th but I have a Boy Scout winter backpacking trip planned for the coming weekend...no joy on shooting it until the following week.

    Buying a little at a time. I have a couple hundred bullets for when I upgrade my reloading rig to handle the BMG cartridge.

    I'm considering spending some of my deployment $ on a nice treat for myself and very interested in a .50. If you don't mind, what's the ballpark $ on that rifle?

    Upper is in the $1000-1300 range depending on options. Complete lowers can be obtained for ~$210 if you shop around. Scopes run $300-1500. Rings run $75-200.

    Ammo will run you $2-5 a round.
