i was at FT HOOD 3 days before that P.O.S. went on the shooting spree years back . I was so amazed at the mind numming amount of armor was in one place every road we drove out for miles on both sides was a sea of concrete and tan equipemnt ! I use to wonder if we had enough stuff and just between Hooks and Hood I sleep soundly !

At 17 gal/hour one might as well fuel it with the tears of underprivileged children.
Besides the fact that most of us won’t get near one not to mention own it.
.
But we can dream about having one.
Maybe just the ability to sit inside of a cute little tank...

It was pretty outstanding just having a very old M60 at Freedom Park in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hatches were welded shut and kids climbed all over it. There was a NCANG F86 Sabre Jet, a coal fired steam train (Gaineseville-Midland 301), an old steam engine, and two very old fire trucks - with hand cranks through the bumper.

Back when there was concrete to fall on - or rocks to fall on.
No fancy frills to break your fall!
