I had forgotten that the F14 Tomcat has a Gatlin gun too. A cool movie to watch is Final Countdown. Where a modern aircraft carrier goes back in time. F14's vs Zero's. I don't know how the F14's flew so slow.

The A-10 Tank Killer has a very low stall speed to compensate for the sheer power of the Main gun... The plane is actually built around the primary weapon. It is a weapon of power to be sure.

If you have ever seen the aircraft mounted Howitzers fire, they push the craft sideways from the blast..... I saw a military video where a crew on just such a plane was trying to take out some insurgents... When one of them ran into a building they called it in and were given permission to blow up the building... It was an impressive blast.

Bedside gun is a Mossberg 590 A1 loaded with 1 Flash bang percussion, 1bean bag round, 00 buck, 3" rifled slug, and if I make it to the last round the whole house may go up....Dragons Breath.

Hornady Zombie Max in the HK Compact tactical, and same in the HK P2000sk 9mm and Ruger LC9.

My side of the bed has a full size M&P 40, Wifes side has a Taurus 38 Special Revolver, front door has a Taurus 40, back door has an AK & Browning A5, Wifes car & kitchen have Glock 9mm's. All have Hollow Points of some kind (except the A5, it'll rattle off 5 shots in a row of 00 Buck if my shoulder can take it )

Standard Corbon in everything. I don't want to have to worry about my back stop should a shooting scenario take place.
