Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Snapshot I'd be happy to if some one would show me to the Officers Club or JOPA. I'm afraid I still get lost on board. In fact I pretty much only know my way from my fraking state room to the wardroom and hanger.

Well said EnsTypewriter. I totrally agree our cockpits are not the place for added weapons, for we ourselves become one in control with our Vipers to defeat the enemy of all Humanity. 

Don't forget how Starbuck while out of her Viper chose to carry a sidearm on each hip. I am all for our pilots arming themselves with the longarm of their choosing. Feel free to add whatever weapons your proficient with to your kit.

I also beleive as you do in respect to the Gods and to the use of our ejection controls. Although in my career, I have had the need to use them so I could live to fight another day. 

While I was in charge of the squadron, I commanded and urged my pilots to spend additional time on the firing range. So they could in an instant protect those around them as well as themselves. However, it is an honorable thing to never have to use force, unless it is against the Cylons.

I hope to see you at the target range and once in a while at the ships lounge.

Good Hunting Ensign, I feel you may be typing a memo soon!!!

SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!

Comment by ENS James "Typewriter" Thompson on April 5, 2019 at 9:17pm

Major Reamer, if I may be so bold, while I appreciate the thought I do belive a second side arm may interfere operations within the cockpit. However I definitely would not resist a select fire pistol and would happily stow a few extended mags into my survival and expeditionary kits. Perhaps a standard carbine conversion platform would be able to fit well into said kits.

I will say I pray to the gods that I never have to touch the black and yellow handles, and only use my side arm(s) on the firing range.

Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on April 5, 2019 at 8:57pm

Captain Hitman, I recomend that Ens Typewriter carry two sidearms instead of one and find him some extended mags. Also have the armorer convert his sidearms to selective fire so he can be ready to recycle......or should I say type.

Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on April 5, 2019 at 8:45pm

Ens. Typewriter sounds great to me! Your call sign could be a code name to fill the toasters full of lead and send the type written report to the CO. 

Comment by ENS James "Typewriter" Thompson on April 5, 2019 at 8:18pm

Captain, Thank you for the warm reception.  I look forward to flying with you all.

Major, I rather like "Typewriter" as my call sign. I hope you don't mind if I use it.

I'll see the rest of you on the flight deck. Good hunting gentlemen.

So say we all.
