    God I blissfully await the day that I can get tags for alien beings, and pick them off from the comfort of my outdoor patio. Thinking a 7mm railgun with the latest Barnes tungsten solid flinging at 15000FPS should make a nice view through a telescope.


    These ARE the good ole days.

    They did not use a 10mm because they did not want to knock it out of orbit.

    They already have rail guns that you can get 5 shots out of, they even have a laser mounted on the same turret....
