Countdown to Breaking Bad!!! - Page 130

If I remember right the M60 is lighter than the MAG/M240, and has a forearm for dismounted use. It was also something of a turd design with many problems. The front cap of the gas cylinder would shake off, so you had to tie wire on to it. If you were sloppy you could reassemble it after field stripping it with the operating rod reversed. It would sometimes keep firing after you released the trigger, so you'd have to twist the ammo belt to stop it. Which is why the MAG replaced it.

the MAAG was magic. it makes bag guys disappear. but it was a specialty weapon, it was usually used by the biggest guys in the platoon.

I have to say, from US military literature (like Tim O'Brian) it seems that the M-60 was typically carried by big guys, too.

I had another thought about the M-60. Walt does think things through and do research, there is a reason he drove to Vermont for that gun.


think of all the meetings that take place in the middle of the desert where they pull their cars up to a spot. if one were to set a meeting in a spot like that, that has a very slight hill 200 meters or so away and then set up in a prone position with an M60 before the other car pulled up, that would be a perfect use for a light machine gun.

I think this is right on target, as it were. But I also suspect it may involve a firing solenoid and a remote control...

This makes a lot of sense. Walt is the last man standing, then succumbs to cancer.

If there is a Saul Goodman spinoff, I seriously hope Bill Burr and Lavell Crawford are involved. Those guys are hilarious.

The moment Skyler asked "...does Marie know?" I thought they're gonna kill Hank.

All fuckign episode I just wanted one of them to say to hank, "what money do you think paid for your rehab?" and to see that look on hank's face realizing he's able to walk because of the dirty blood money he's so rustled over.

I'm not normally interested in women's shoes, but Lydia's are really stunning. My gf informed me that they are Louboutins.
