I do realize that this is a difficult request and putting it here is realy a long shot... on the other hand I've always been told that there are no wrong questions and what you don't ask, you sure don't get...
I have a close friend who has terminal lung cancer and one of his wishes is to shoot his .50 BMG. Yes, you read that right: HIS .50 BMG! He bought that rifle 2 years ago (when I remember it correctly it's an austrian single shot, I think a Steyr, but I have to check this.)
But it's not easy to find a range in Belgium to shoot that thing. So he was already preparing to travel to Germany and/or to England as he got the message about his terminal disease. And that stupid cancer is going so fast that I don't expect him to be able to travel anymore.
We are already asking and pushing several contacts and as a result they would allow him his fun on a militairy range near our home, but only when he would use special ammunition, a kind of training rounds that only go for about 50 % of the normal distance of a .50 BMG. This training rounds are manufactured in Canada and our local army wouldn't (or couldn't) sell it to civilians. So with his license he can buy the normal ammo here locally, but not this 50 % reduced loads and the army only allows following:
so: does anyone know a way to get a box of that special ammunition here to Belgium? Even a few rounds would help. You would give a very special person a very special moment, a moment he's already waiting for for about 2 years and I'm afraid that we don't have much time anymore.
And he is equiped to reload the .50 BMG, so when it's easier to send such bullets and cases separately... but only from that special round (he already has everything to load for the .50 BMG, but not for that special round)
