    No, the 50 cal is the size of your thumb, look again, 20mm are even larger yet.:eek:

    Darn,

    why the hell does the FBI want 'Belgian Camo'? Anything special about it?

    It must be in vogue now, I think we should ask someone who 'lives' there what is so special about it.:D

    lol, me living here in no way means I can get such information, in fact the public is pretty much shielded away from the whole defense industry and we barely ever hear about it... And I'm not in the gun trade myself, so maybe someone from here could explain 'Belgian Camo' to me ;p

    I was just saying that in jest:D, maybe their intent on calling it Belgian camo was a word spin off of the term "Belgian Congo" possibly.:scratch

    I don't think even 18" walls would stop these:dunno:. This round is designed to penetrate heavy tank armor and bunkers, I'm just going to go deeper underground.:D:2thumb:
    By the way, I'm putting the final touches on the air filter system in the shelter, just need to connect everything up.:sssh: It's too cold to pour concrete right now, so I'm working more on the electrical and lighting. A few more welds on the bunker door frame and it will be ready to drop in.

    You are in California and you are complaining of the cold? :scratch :dunno:

    It is -22° C (that is -8° F) this morning when I got up - vehicles barely want to start if their block heaters are not plugged in overnight.

    Just wondering if it would be worth laying corrugated steel with poured concrete to create a deflection-zone to bounce those bigass bullets away?

    [​IMG]

    Here is a link to a US supplier that makes armor plating and they also have a 2,000t break that would be able to turn their sheet plating into corrugated plate: http://www.army-technology.com/contractors/armoured/heflin/

    I am wondering if my company would be able carry those products so that I can make my own toys! :2thumb:

    Compressed DG(decomosed granite) almost rock hard. Look at my previous posts on construction for more photos...

    If they want ya outa there bad enough, they will go to military and get the job done. Were not safe anywhere if they want us bad enough, but as for the general raider i don't think ya have anything to worry about bunkerbob. Sounds like you have a good setup.

    i don't know the performance of a 20mm but its used for armor piercing i'd bet it can easily go through 20" concrete no problem the 50 and the 416 are better sniper rounds...WTF does the FBI need with these the 20mm is basically for anti armor and hardened targets..?

    the x flex is for blast a 20MM would go through it no problem

    Long ago I figured out that part of any good defensive plan is to know when it is time to cut bait and run. No civilian stationary position it impervious to every thing. While some have the Alamo mind set of standing their ground to the last man. That is not an option I want to consider. There are limits to any defensive plan. Most of us can not defend against full scale military assaults, air strikes and artillery fire. So we need build our defenses as best we can with the resources we have available and have a plan in place for when to retreat and fight another day. Even deep underground is susceptible to bunker bombs
