Rocking Ma Deuce in a handheld mode will invoke an uncontrollable two-step (VIDEO)

Richard Ryan and FullMag went hands-on with a dismounted M2 heavy machine gun and was able to stand for a few rounds of 50 BMG.

The M2 goes in excess of 80~ pounds unloaded and even it’s most anorexic variants– the AN/M2  AN/M3 light-barreled designs for aircraft use back in the World War II era– tip the scales at 60 pounds. Still, with all that weight going for it, a weedeater-like forward grip, a shoulder strap and leaning into the pain, Ryan can only get off two shots before the beast has him sidestepping. Talk about dancing with the stars.

We are thinking home defense.
