Somali Pirates Panic: US Marine Fires GAU 17 minigun from a UH 1Y Venom

I have no desire to hunt small game or shoot any animals but this looks like fun.

I’d go back into the Navy if they’d let me shoot Somali Pirates with these types of guns.

One problem though…..the only parts of my uniform that I can still get into after 50 years is my socks and the neckerchief.

It is not Pirates, it is an unmanned target drone used for training.

Gunner needs more training.
Couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn.

My guess is that was filmed late in September and they had excess ordinance they needed to "disperse" in order to ensure the new FY budget allowed for a complete restock. If you don't "spend it", you don't get it next year.

I support the military (Army Vet), but veterans all know how the system works...

Long ago, like about 200 years Marines were sent to fight Somali pirates. They sent them to hell.

That was back when the Marines were tasked with doing what they do best

I'm sure they'd issue you a new one, if you're a good shot or a good cook. Mike
