Nah, that only applies when you have a bobble head Jesus glued to the thing.

I'd be bitter too if somebody gave me a machine gun with no ammo...

I think anon nailed it.

BTW - anybody I.D.'ed the firearm? Friend and I have been debating and it's tough to tell from the angle (is the barrel really short or is just depth distortion)?

Looks to me like a "Jimpy" - what we Brits call a general Purpose Machine Gun" - the standard service MG. It's normally fired from a bipod (shown folded backwards under the barrel) but can be tripod or vehicle mounted as needed.

Belt fed (of course) with a detatchable butt for those times when it isn't needed (as shown in the picture) with a quick change barrel for the sustained fire role.

A good bit of kit.
