    :D If I were to join the marines, I want to be a gunner in a helicopter, or a pilot.

    That was so cool!

    That should be a recruiting film. With the words "Marines. Blow Sh!t Up." at the end.

    Nothing like tracers and an extremely high rate of fire at night. Beautiful.

    The craziest thing about that video is that the shooting is by civilians. Mike Dillon, the owner of Dillon Precision and Dillon Aero, owns a few helicopters (the Huey and the MD500 Defender in the video are his) and MANY full-auto weapons. Dillon Aero is now a Gov't. contractor for parts and service on the GAU-series miniguns, so he's gotta test them someplace, right? Might as well have fun doing it...
    And I'll tell ya... watching that makes me miss being an aerial gunner even more. My final flight in the Corps was a day-into-night gunrun; I shot about 1500 rounds of 50-cal in the day, and about 2500 at night. On the final pass for the night, I had three cans left. So, I fired three 100-round bursts. :saweet: Hell of a way to end a career...

    I agree, except maybe the slogan should be Marines: Don't F*ck With Us

    Linked 7.62 is 1 tracer, 5 non-tracer. 50-cal is the same; I think 5.56 is the same too. It's pretty much the standard configuration for pre-linked ammo. But it is easy enough to re-link it to whatever you want - for example, when I was in training to become an aerial gunner, one of our instructors had us re-link our ammo to 1 tracer to 10 non-tracer for a night, low-light-level shoot. It helped to keep the night vision goggles from "blooming" due to too much light. Took about 1 1/2 hrs. for 4 gunners to do 2000 rounds...

    There's some other incredible footage at www.vampirebat.com in the 'war' section. But be warned, although some of it is amusing , some of it is not for the faint hearted. Seeing some Iraq soldiers being turned to soup by Apache fire may not be to everyones taste........oh no, what am I talking about...this is CK5!:)
