Hey Al-Quaeda...




It's a girl.


A girl without a bhurka.


A girl without a veil.


Who shoots a gun bigger than herself...


To send you straight to hell.
Hat tip ACE.

The news caption notwithstanding, I don't believe that's a .50 cal. They just aren't that large. That looks like it might be a Mark 38 25-mm machine gun:

No, this looks just like a Ma Deuce...next to a very short girl.

The barrel looks too narrow to accomodate an inch wide shell. The lightening holes are too small and it looks just like an M2....it may be The weapon may have a lengthened barrel (by about 3-4 inches) or she may be shorter than 4'11. Its unclear if the grips count towards the overall length, and the thing may not actually be flush with the floor....

But I'll ask a GM because now you have injected doubt into my otherwise ordered existance.

That's a .50 cal all right. I had the pleasure of sinking a 'tomato' with one of these on one of my middie cruises. Navy ships all carry them as well (even carriers) - they are useful for warding off small boats intent on an USS Cole type attack.

Here's a pic of one mounted on a Coastie ship. I'd have shown a Navy gun but Ken is a Coastie, afterall...

Short girl skews perspective, I'll agree.
