I have wanted one of these since Cobb made them. I had the chance to get one several years back for $3,500 and just couldn't make it happen. Then Bushmaster took over making the BA-50.



I hope someday to get one of these. I am just curious if anyone here has one or has shot one.

A friend has one of these and it is a hoot to shoot, a few times... OWWWWEEEE

The .50 caliber is meant for long-range sniper activity and not just for simple plinking. The cost is very high to own the gun, but to feed it is also very expensive. A quality scope is also required to make the gun worth while, another couple thousand dollars...

My suggestion is to convince a good friend to purchase it and "time share" it.

It really is not a practical gun for the sport shooter, and is definately not a protection device, unless you have a good scope and want to take an engine block out at 1 mile+!!!

^Well, it would make a nice conversation piece to mount on the wall... I actually stopped in Cabela's in PA today on my way home... they had a BA-50 sitting there... I was sooooo close to applying for the Cabela's card to get it... BUT somehow my logic kept me in control...

Keep your logic under control. If you purchase one of these, you will regret it. Trust me. Nice gun, but very impractical.

I know it is completely impractical, and something I would rarely shoot, but I have wanted one for YEARS now... Eventually I will end up getting one, I just need to wait until I am in a better spot.

Good wisdom!! The .50 is a great goal to have, trust me, ultimately, you would have to buy a reloading press for the rounds, another $500. Nonetheless, a great goal in life!!!!

^ My friend has all the stuff to reload. He told me I would just need to buy the 50 specific stuff and he would get me started reloading them.
