    But just think of all the powder measures that we wouldn't have to buy. We could just use a tweezer, or perhaps even our fingers. Kinda like loading Pyrodex pellets in a muzzle loader.

    Of course, since it doesn't seem to have a flash suppressor, I guess it would be legal to own in NJ or CA or any of the other people's republics.

    Maybe I should have used the word pellet.

    I'm sitting here trying to remember if one of thse pellets would fit in a .45 casing....... But it's been well over 20 years and I just can't remember.

    So, instead of a powder measure, we get a tweeser and a knife.

    BTW..in pic 1....Please NOTICE the 2300 pound 16 inchers on their way to making a 150 Dia x 50-75 Ft deep crater.. somewhere .within a 23 mile effective range. ..(my Brother "called the shots" for the New Jersey (BB62) while with the USMC "on tour" in "Downtown Beruit" in 1984......He always said,"Bob, picture this, imagine lobbing a Volkswagen Beetle, 23 miles with pinpoint accuracy" and disintigrating the area when it hits. Not to mention the SCREACHING SOUND the rounds make as they proceed overhead, onto their target!! NOW....How can you NOT LOVE firepower like that!!

    However, as my brother the Submariner will tell you, it may be big, but it's still a target!
    It' a target..BUT.with 16 to 24 inches or armor in her hull.......would take a pretty good hit to sink, or just get through that plate..

    Shucks Bob - you're on a roll this evening

    I had seen that one and IIRC it provoked much contraversey. No mistake tho - that platform is totally awesome.

    Mean to add - every time they get major hits, a young sounding guy says something - always about same but can't work out what it is!! Almost a shout but not quite.
