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

    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!
