We used to fire them at a target that was pulled behind a Tudor and had success at it, but any modern day fighter jet could have blown us out of the water in a heartbeat. It would be like an nhl team vs a peewee team.
I beleive it - our Navy used to be pretty good in the mid 20th century, no? I can't wait till crooked mouth is gone... hopefully Martin will put some channel the gun registration money into the armed forces!
