The nearly 7 feet tall Anzio 20mm rifle (or cannon) is one amazing gun!

Featuring a 49″ long barrel (4 feet)

Here is a video of it being fired:

I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    It is going to take a real man to send 20-40 rounds down range and get up with a smile on his face or a broken shoulder. You young kids can have it, my bones can barley take a 300 W/M. I would like to see it fired tho. I guess the FBI has a good reason for them. They would need a van at the least to get it around, no Crown Vic could carry it.

    Depleted uranium only emits a small amount of tritium, about the same as the glow on a watch dial, it does nothing to your "DNA strands"
