Oh, please... please, please let me praise you by using this visage as a reference for a character in my book series? He's a wise, but strict commanding officer, and I've been searching for months for a man that looked the part to reference to no avail. This is such a strikingly wonderful picture that I'm inspired!
OMG, I am so happy and appreciative! I will list you in my credits and show you the finished product--though it might not be finished for a couple of years You have no idea how thankful I am. Most people say 'no' without a thought.
You could mill a receiver that fits over the shell and locks into the chamber the same way the slot is on the tank turret. If it was a strong enough metal it should work. Then again it may explode in your hands. Also recoil would be a problem....
Come to think of it though, a heat round fired from a man-portable version would make you the ultimate sniper. Now my head is spinning with the possibilities lol
