Too big

for a woman. Too expensive to shoot, also.

My wife would disagree with you about that. You can reload the 50 for around a $1.90 a round if you use surplus powder for it.

the brass first. Still too big for most women. Not that comfortable to fire...

The 50 is like shooting a 20 guage shotgun. My wife likes recoil. :)

You can pick up brass

You can pick up brass for the 50 as cheap as .50 a round.

that, from what I have seen. It is just not a practical gun. It will shoot you into the poorhouse, for what to have the loudest gun on the range?

I have surplus dealers

I have surplus dealers that I can buy 50 BMG brass for .50 a round if you order 100 rounds or more. I have 2 friends back home in Indiana that have been shooting 50 BMG for 15 years or more. They showed me where to buy brass and bullets for the 50 BMG cheap. One friend own 2 of the 50's one for him and his wife.

In 1997,

In 1997, I shoot over 36,000 rounds of ammo by myself alone. I was shooting 45acp match, 223 and .308 match ammo plus 22 long rifle. Only 2,000 rounds was 22 ammo. I shot 30,000 just in 45acp that year. I was shooting 3 matches a month almost all year long.

No, medical retired

No, medical retired for the last 14 years. I reloaded all the ammo myself. I make less then $1,000 a month right now. Just know how to make my money go a long way when it cames to shooting.
