Seven of those Dylan guns were made early enough that they are civilian legal.

Technically, a minigun is in a separate category from a machine gun. That's still badass. Who says Canada sucks? France may be the parent country, but they established a dominance close to that of america.

This is an awesome photo! It reminds me of my first ride in a Huey Helicopter with my dad. We went to the Dayton Air Show and it was my first time seeing the Blue Angels. My dad took me on a helicopter ride as a surprise. We sat in the gunner seat. It was the best seats ever! When the helicopter was flying it turned, and the view was similar to this photo. All I could see down below was a whole bunch of small trees and endless rivers. It was beautiful. I've never flown in anything before and this was my first experience. I wanted to fly again, it was fun! After the ride, my hair was all over the place, the pilot pointed to me and said Huey hair! That was funny.

That's a piece of hardware I've yet to set a finger on, but then I've also called in 155mm HE-Quick :D

The M134 is scary, to be sure, and probably damn impressive to be behind. Thanks for sharing, it's an epic shot with the city rolling out beneath the airman.

These photos are great. I am not that big of a fan of the helicopter photos (even though they are amazing). It is just personal preference, but I much prefer the ground action shots.

Keep up the good pics though!
