    Ok.. So safety railing must be lowered before gun can fire? Were they just shooting at water? Why not a pallet with something sticking up? I understand in some areas they find half submerged vend boxes that fell off freighters in storms.
    I could make some killer moving targets. Remote boat, pulling pontoon like target holder... $1.3 million a copy (plus batteries, remotes, upgrades... ) of course.

    Having been a weapons officer on a "real" ship, nuclear systems fore and aft, long range SAMs and a rapid fire 5"/54, I consider the 57mm a wimp and the LCS ships are sadly underarmed. Don

    The 57 is OK, the ship just needs to use the right ammo. :supergrin:
