    I've seen Quad .50s in action on some US base camp I had occasion to visit in Vietnam circa 1968-69. Very impressive light show when "Charlie's in the wire".

    I'm still waiting for a laser cannon to install under the bonnet of my car to use on the mongrels who crowd in and block intersections in front of me.
