I was on our Ship's Self-Defense Force and Security Alert Teams as Scout/Sniper, so, I drew an M-14E2 from the ship's armory. Trying to hit those barrels with select fire for the first time was quite an eye opening experience. I practically had to learn to shoot all over again. Definitely one of the best gun lessons I have ever had.

We were tasked to sit off the coast of Nicaragua and observe the Noriega takeover. After getting a big US flag (painted metal sheet) tacked on the sides and 4 M2 mounts welded to the deck, we left NS Rodman and headed for our station. On the way the deck apes rigged a sled to be towed by the gig (long rope), We had a blast
getting familiar with the Ma deuce.

May 1979 to March 2007... Avionics Tech turned Naval Aviator (Pilot) I don't miss the Navy, not one bit, I miss the people. Not all of them mind you, but a lot of them! Spent most all of my "career" in the E-2/C-2 community. 3000+ flight hours and 400+ traps and cats, it was an "E-ticket ride" the whole way!

On the Ingersoll we used an inflatable square we affectionately called the "Killer Tomato" for target practice for our 5-inch 54's. Since the rounds we used would not completely destroy the target we would get closer and use the 50 cal's on the bridge wings to finish them off.

If that was not fun enough, in preparation for a deployment to the Persian Gulf we had a MK 38, 25mm chain gun set up on the starboard quarterdeck. Talk about fun to shoot and deadly accurate.
