    I missed the Thanksgiving Day special , it was the Top 10 ? We filmed 3 specials in the last month , hell , hard to keep up with them . I did hear one interesting tidbit from a new producer the other day . He was flipped out because us making a gun [that they where filming] was interfering with his filming schedule . Said he'd done all the reality shows , never ran into such bullshit . everybody else has a side crew that does that work for them . lol , ain't that some shit ? think we'll keep doing it our way some of the shit they film and the way they put it togather may irk me but at least it's an honest effort . oh yeah , some kid on this board was pissing about the way I talk to my "best" mechanic , dude , if you see this . They've never aired my best "mechanic" . he works over in the custom shop . Unless you meant Joe , and I really don't think I've ever spoken harsh to him . He's a increadibly talented and self motivated guy .

    Getting together a decent fire control system to ward off rocket attacks would be difficult to get working under a time crunch. Most systems today use a doppler radar with a very narrow beam width for pinpoint anti-inc, combined with a full spectrum surface search system (ala- 48 r). Because RPG attacks would be happening within 100 yards, a system like that wouldn't be very plausible on its own....supplemented by a drones or AWACS though.....who knows. Would just be a matter of getting POF location, make that data relative to the target and point the countermeasure in its general direction. Shit....a Thermal camera would make an RPG launch light up like a christmas tree and would make POF easy to ascertain.... An EMF variance detection system would be cool...Anyway...just musings. lol. we've developed target recognition software for urban/ground use in conjunction with our remote operating system [ still in R&D , we'll show it when we're ready] . Still , 800 -5000 pellet's flying into a crowd ain't going to be a pretty picture . No, probably not a pretty picture in that case...on the other hand, if they are standing within 20 yards of a vehicle that has an RPG flying its way they are probably seconds away from being a screaming alpha anyway. The applications for this system would be extremely useful in the air as well. Those 30 or so devgru guys that lost their lives to an RPG in that low flying, slow, navy ch47 last month would have appreciated it. Chaf / Flares won't stop a dumb fire..... 2000 pellets will. They may have to be specialized rounds though...Tungsten pellets maybe for more penetration. Now you're not just selling the system, you're also selling the rounds for it. Revenue, I love America. You make a good point . Like I say , I'll be at AUSA in Oct, , I have meetings scheduled with some interesting people . I'll see what they think , end of the day , unless someone at SOCOM Command wants to sponsor it , it ain't going to happen . Will

    it's fun as hell touching it off but like I said above , unless there's a serious interest[money] , the 12's dropped in favor of the 5.56 . The mag's did well , Joe has a rheostat type switch to control rpms , that's handy .

    That's definatly a thought . I'll be at the AUSA conference in Oct. , I'll see if there's any interest in it .

    I have to ask, where did you end up finding ammo for that thing? I can't imagine it is very easy to find...nor is it cheap lol. 80 rounds of HE, AP and TP...what fun. Do the guys that come in and do the ultrasound have other ways to NDI parts? Liquid Dye Penatrant or eddy curret testing? I would have been pretty nervous putting that thing back together and firing it after it had been cut up and in pieces for so long...the boys did a great job putting it back together again and very cool to see fire! Not always fun on your end is an understatement I'm sure, but we sure love to see Red Jackets hard work pay off on air sir. Charlie found a case of 100 for like $450.00ish . After it was x-ray'd , we had it stress relived and heat treated . Hey Will, I will be having the opportunity to shoot a Lahti and am trying to locate ammo for it. Would you be able to send some info my way? Love the show, keep up the good work! Thanks I don't have a source , Charlie went a Googleing .

    The motor just spun the three guns, The trigger guards were removed, and the triggers were actuated by a piece of metal that was angled as a ramp as the guns passed on the bottom side. From what I saw anyhow. That's what it was .
