It would have to include minivans, bro trucks, front-wheel drive Cadillacs, and white vans with ladder racks also.

Joe, Using the gun to take out a stack of Prii would be prefect.

Have a good one.

Y'know, there have been times when I was so frustrated while working on one vehicle or other that I'd have been pleased as punch if there was some place I could tow it & have that thing run it over a few times. As punishment, of course . . . :twisted:

The other day while going through some of my late Dad's stuff I came across his tank mechanic certificate from the fifth armored division. He worked on M-47's and M-48's.

I do not know if it still exists today, but I drove a Russian T55 tank some years ago (around 2005 IIRC), as a "Rent-A-Tank". The place was about 40 miles north of Kyiv, Ukraine and was on an (former Soviet) old military tank training course. They even had explosions along the course to throw mud and water at your tank, water crossings, and similar tasks. I think the explosion things were like semi-fake, a real explosion but the gunk was blasted out of something resembling a "blank starter pistol", only bigger. It was a total blast (pun intended) to drive the course and did not cost much.

Maybe someone knows if this "Rent-A-Tank" thing still exists? Dunno. (I don't mean around Donetsk and Lugansk, either...)

I drove and fired M60A3 when I was going through ROTC training. Gunner! Sabot! Tank! Fire! Only thing I was ever allowed to drive over was empty oil drums. But they were really flat afterwards. . .

Cheers,

Dan K.
