Anybody wanna be a door gunner?

Ever thought about being a helicopter door gunner? The next time that you're in Las Vegas and you have a few extra bucks check these guys out.

My kind of fun man.

Granted, I never shot a SAW out the door, but getting paid to door gun is even better. Mostly.

I got paid to fire an M134 from the door of an MH47.

I believe I'll pass on this one.

Many times I recall thinking 'they are paying me money to do this'.

On the flip side I recall thinking at times "they're not paying me enough money to do this shit!"

I've turned down several gunnery sorties because I didn't want to have to clean the 60 afterwards.

Hmmm... that's pretty cool, as a gift. I'd give it to people who'd never have had the chance otherwise in a heartbeat.

I've often been curious as to how many people that have had to deal with the cleaning and maintenance, lugging them around, actually miss shooting them?

^Maybe it's because I gotten old but I actually enjoy sitting around with some buds and cleaning guns. Especially after a good day at the range.

LOL. For the hog hunt we talked about maybe trying to find a place to do it from a helo.

Would be fun - but I have a real hard time paying to shoot shit from an aircraft

Can we get a night run on Black Island on NVGs creating a wake. Sometimes they did not pay enough and sometimes it was "I cant believe I get paid to do this".

Itís fun when you do it now at your leisure, for some reason when it was a job it was not as much fun.

Most of us these days probably arenít cleaning through the finish either, to appease the pronoun people.
