    Ahhhhh, yes, the days before gun mounts. I remember them well. Had to be very, very careful not to shoot your own rotors off. Never actually flew with a mount and don't know if I'd have liked the limitations. What an awesome job! Few people called it shotgun back then, that I remember. It was Door Gunner or just Gunner.
