He may or may not be.  We really don’t know 100%.
But this is for certain:  He’s more pro than any other announced candidate.

In rereading the OP question, the answer would have to be a 23mm ZU-23 anti-aircraft fun at the Norinco test grounds outside Beijing.
The whole fricking gun platform recoils as the tracer headed toward a mountain about 5 miles away.
More fun than Boomer but don’t think there are any ranges around here that would let you shoot it.

We had a C6, really liked the C7 and wouldn't mind renting one again for a roadtrip.

It is Houston where exactly is this “good part of town” of which you speak.

9mm = most rounds down range but Boomer is the biggest blast.

Anyone care to wager this kid never worked for anything in his life?

sounds good ...

Wouldn’t you expect most any Cajun sauce on cardboard to taste pretty good?

"Gross negligence" and "reckless disregard" will be cornerstone arguments in the lawsuit ...

He will be lucky if all he is charged with is disorderly conduct. 
My guess they’ll find a felony to take his guns, as this is very similar to yelling “Fire!” in a crowded theater.

Tactical Shooting / Re: Axxe's Rules For A Gunfight!

TXAZ Rule for gunfighting:  Never engage at less that 600 yards, 1,000+ is preferable.  (very few have successfully shot that far, and even fewer can hit a 2 MOA target at that distance.)

But, but, but,........Not everyone has a Boomer TXAZ!  :th_thicon_lol:

And I thank God for that! :) 
(P.S. TxHillbilly's 6.5 CM's are much more surgical than Boomer at 1,000+ yards.  He's really the guy you don't want to piss off.  But having a BMG round go whizzing by you at 1,000 yards is an unforgettable pucker.)

A few days before the first day of school, we had to attend a very interesting seminar today on helping kids with issues.  It turns out that (after the fact) about 70% of the mass killers had overt emotional  / mental problems that in retrospect were recognized by people around them, and might have been addressable long before SHTF if appropriate measures were in place.  But the US mental health approach is to effectively wait until something substantial happens.

One  major crux of the issue is we don't teach youngsters how to apologize, walk away, cool off or otherwise de-escalate a potentially explosive situation.  That's part of the contrast with other (often Northern European) countries that have some of that training for younger kids through early adulthood.

If the car or piece of equipment does not specify premium your wasting money and gaining nothing.

If you're old, you may remember the "Shell with Platformate" commercial.....

I'm not sure how much of that commercial can be taken at face value but I remember that gas at the time was 33.9 for regular and 39.9 premium.  You're paying about 20% more to get 5% better mileage according to the unwritten part of the commercial...

There's got to be more to that story.....
