I used to man one of the 50 cal stations on my ship. Always fun watching the water light up with tracers...

would think that would scare them a bit more than rounds way off out of the way ..

but I guess in an abundance of caution its better not to shoot too close

I don't remember how far our targets were off the boat - but impacts threw up a pretty large amount of water ...

turn music down :-(

did the 50s skip off of the water like a 22 will when shot at an angle?
maybe off a ship the angle would be too high to come back off the water
