Those films are interesting to watch, but I don't trust ANYTHING that relies on Timpken bearings after all the failed bearings I've replaced over the years. :D Don't like heights very much, either.

Thanks Art. I didn't notice the barrel tracking the targets. It'd seem that the gun was stationary and aimed by using the aircraft to do the aiming.

Maybe, maybe not?

These guys are free holding the rifles. Not missing much either.

I have had several chances to shoot hogs from a chopper. Problem is the owners don't want to go back out to pick up the dead animals, they just want to let them lay.

While I know the feral hogs are super destructive, I just can't justify shooting them and letting them lay when there are people who will eat the meat.

Don't flame me for my position, calling me anti hunter. I just feel that animals I shoot while hunting should be eaten. I shoot deer and hogs, butcher and put the meat in the freezer.

It looks like a hoot no doubt about it, trouble is I would be heaving more than bullets......:barf:
