    IIRC This was settled twice previously. Shooter fired 6 shots. Six were required, the "or" between the 6+ is implied. Six targets are down.

     

    It's a long story why I remember; but, I was there when one of the events that resulted in the clarification occurred. 

     

    I will look for the threads; but, as I am no longer a TG and it has probably been archived, I doubt I will have any luck.

     


     I remember it having to do with assuming the shooters intent. 
     

  2. Everyone is assuming that the falling rifle is empty. What happens when it isn't?

     

    It is pretty well documented that if you slap the lever on a toggle link rifle closed there is a really good possibility that it the firing pin will have enough momentum to fire the cartridge.

     

    We have all seen rifles that have been re-staged with a round left in the gun.

  3. Sounds impressive but in reality air to air refueling didn't require a whole lot from the drone to make it work. Air to air refueling in the Navy places all the work on the receiving aircraft. The drone  just has to maintain the correct speed and altitude.

     

    An operator on the ship can easily perform all the necessary functions required of the Drone.  Heck with a little work the receiving aircraft could likely perform those as well. A low power data link could allow the receiving aircraft the ability to extend and retract the refueling drogue and start or stop the flow of fuel. Flying a programed track is something any drone can already do.

     

    The impressive part is getting a drone to consistently land on a carrier flight deck. Especially in bad weather with an unpredictable pitching deck.

  5. An amazing endeavor by the British during WWII to supply fuel to allied forces during the ground invasion of the continent.

    I was wondering if i could just put a hose bib outside the building and connect it to a hose bib on my house with a garden hose.  No reason that wouldn't pressurize the rest of the building.  But it's a little too far away and we definitely don't want a hose permanently strung across the driveway. 

     

    Sun shining on a garden hose full of water will make the water in the hose go bad 9 times out of 10.

  7. Long story but while on vacation long ago we rescued an orange Pomeranian on the way home. First day in the truck it would paw your arm when it had to pee.  The second stop of the day we walked the dog and then put it in the cab while I was refueling and the wife went to the bathroom. Went inside to pay and when I came out and approached the truck the dog started snarling and snapping like it had rabies. Waited for the wife and he did the same thing when she went up to the door. 

    Took off my shirt to use to corner the dog as the wife opened the door. As soon as the door opened the dog instantly stopped and started wagging its tail. 

    Guess the previous owner taught him that as he did it every time.

  8. For anyone thinking about crossing the Mississippi river at Memphis the I-40 bridge is still closed. 

    Currently late August is the best guess for it to reopen.

     

    All the traffic is being routed to the I-55 bridge.

    I wish I knew where that recipe was, when I was in the Navy. 

     

    The Navy was the only entity that could, and did, mess up Jell-O!!! 

     

    The best cooks we had, were Marine cooks, on the base I was on. 

     

    Best meals I routinely got in the Chow hall were midrats. Steak and eggs on occasion plus omelets cooked to order.

     

    When in C-School, I figured out that the best food was served the 3 days after payday. Lots of surf-n-turf, shrimp, steak. The closer to payday it got the worse the food.

     

    Shortly After I started dating the woman that was to be come my wife:wub:. Got hooked on her home cooking and the rest as they say is history.
