    That's beautiful man. :wipestear:

    Military people should be thanking the US taxpayer for providing advanced weapons systems that keep them alive and winning.

    Was 4-F for the draft back in 72 due to extreme near-sightedness and bad hearing. Have always been regretful for not being able to serve. Props to all who did.

    Is that an M110 gun in your avatar, an artillery piece so accurate that when you say, "Repeat one round" the round makes the first hole bigger?

    My apologies :D

    I should've looked at the single engine tailpipe too.

    I am not responsible for any accurate postings after 2300 :D
