So I'm suppose to be impressed by a gazillion ton armor plated AMERICAN made tool of war; firing it's long guns in practice.....gasp....(inhale sharply....nostrils flaring...)

Depending on when and where that video was shot there is a good chance I was in the area. We were part of a couple of Firexes with the Missouri heading from Southern California to Seattle for Sea Fair. It's impressive on video but when you can actually hear and feel the concussion from 2000+ yards astern it is unbelievable.

Where I used to work, we had the lathe that those barrels were turned on. It had been shipped to Houston from Pittsburgh when the Mesta Machine Co, went bankrupt. We had to cut about 20' off the bed of the lathe to fit it in the building (which was 120' lg.). The lathe was originally built right before WWII to machine steel mill rolls, which is what it was still doing when I left in 1992. Man, that was one monster lathe.
