    A very impressive gun. So impressive, you need an A-10 to haul it around!

    That's where these pics were taken. The Barry Goldwater Range, just south of Gila Bend.

    Heard they're retiring the warthogs. Shame! There's just some unique character about them that makes a statement, kinda like the original Jeep Wrangler makes a statement, but with a lot less ammo.

    As an active duty Infantryman in the 80's I was very, very glad we had these bad boys!
