Here is the New Jersey firing her 16 inch main rifles. If you look close between the right fireball and the fire from the barrells you can see two projectiles!

Jets and boats and tanks are cool, but being an Infantryman, I like a little more hands on approach

I was flown to Ft AP Hill as a subject matter expert when the 126th needed training for their machine gunners.

If I were running the range I wouldn't have allowed the brass to pile up like this but it makes a great picture!
