The Close in Defence System on an Australian Navy Ship just back from the Persian Gulf. A 25mm gattling gun.

    Falko - going Freud on us eh? What does that say for me. I'm usually the only female on the range, and usually have the longest barrel.

    Next time Dirk go shooting with the American women. We're better. Won me a Gold Cup .45 in a shoot out match. Stupid guy for betting against me. Those Texans are tough rivals though.

    when i was over there i went to shoot some times with some germans ... so i didn't have much contact with american shooters ... well ... except an old guy who shot skeet ... and this one was pretty good (i think 24 in training or so) ... he looked ... hm ... very average ... but i heard he was high ranking in state championship ...

    so you might imagine: i thought of other things than the right expressions ... ;-)))

    but: i still like the expression very much ...

    In the United States, mostly all gun owners refer to the muzzle end of the gun, as the "business end"
    It's a standard expression, and very effective. :-)

    Thanks for your words guys.
    Had friends on the crew, which helped.
    Still couldn't fit it in my pocket :-)

    "business end" ... what a nice expression ... :-)

    I wouldn't want to be standing looking at the business end of it. Great shot Wayne.
