    Oh, how far we have come from the days of the old M-79 "blooper" guns.

    Nothing like chucking 40 Mike Mike's out at a rate of 350 rounds per minute. Now that's some righteous firepower!

    Actually, the M79 is still seeing some (very limited) use. Also, the 40mm rounds for the Mk19 are NOT interchangeable with the 40mm rounds for the M203/M79...and the Mk 19 has been around in some version since the Vietnam era.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I loved the M79. Accurate, simple, and robust. Great with flechette rounds too!

    We had flechette rounds for our 106 recoilless rifle in 1970, but never needed to use them. There must have been hundreds of those little needles in that round. I really wanted to see what a test fire of the flechette would look like on the river. The LT, "No and I don't want to hear about this again." So he didn't, until today.

    Yeah, I understand early version of MK 19's were popular mounted on the brown water Navy's PBR's in the rivers and delta.

    Never had opportunity to see one in use. Our CH-46's just had side hatch mounted M-60's
