    The CGA has just released a new promotional video, which can be found on the home page at http://www.uscga.edu/

    It's called Choosing the USCGA and features numerous familiar faces including my son and several of his class, as well as a number in the Class of 2013. Great job producing this.:thumb:

    It was....we max out at 76mm, which was on the bow of the ship with the 25 mm.


    Used to impress me until I got a load of the 105mm, 40mm and 25mm on an AC-130 down in Florida. Now THAT is nasty.

    I agree! Good video! I also saw many familiar faces (& my daughter as a Swab from last year)

    I figured. It's one of the few guns of that size with such a low cyclic rate. But when it's self-mobile on a Bradley it's a handy tool for making all sorts of holes.
