Snipex Alligator - Wikipedia

Gives the weight as 25 kilograms. That's 55 pounds. This thing ain't a rifle, it's shoulder fired artillery......o_O

Here's Wiki on the .57 caliber ammunition

I just tried it again, and the whole article comes up just fine. It comes up in Apple news, and there is an ad to subscribe to Apple news, but you don’t have to subscribe to read the article. I am not a computer expert, but you have something wrong. I also don’t need to sign in every time I come here.

I only need to sign in if my computer has been off. Once I'm signed in, it's good all day, even if I close the tab.
I didn't need the article, anyway. I learned more than enough on Wikipedia.
It's probably my VPN. Some sites despise them, they don't know where you are to "tailor" the advertisements. Right now a site would think I'm 400 miles from where I really am. I love it. Tomorrow it may be 1000 miles. The program picks my "location" at random.

I'll take two if someone is offering. After all, I think we probably paid for them with our tax dollars anyway.
You are probably right. I didn’t think about that. I will write my congressman, and see what he can do.

I run Brave browser with Brave Shields up. The site opened for me. I put Shields down, and the site "greyed out". So probably is your VPN. And I read the PM post, and Wikipedia; you got everything you needed and then some.

Wow. It's classified as "anti-materiel". That reminds of basic where the drills told us it was against the Geneva Convention to use a .50 cal on enemy troops. It could only be used against equipment. Therefore, we were instructed to aim for their rucksacks.
