Protecting the Prez

I came across this video after the Inauguration of President Barack Obama.  I know a lot of TV time was spent on the presidential limo, but I think what was in the Secret Service’s SUV surrounding the limo was more interesting.  In the Secret Service Units, there is a gun called the Dillon M134D Gatling Gun that fires about 3000 shots per minute.  I hope we never have to see it in action for real, but for those who like this sort of thing, the video above is pretty cool.  I’m just guessing they were using blanks, or that cameraman is made of bulletproof lead.

A side note, my redneck friend Erick said it is his dream to operate this gun while driving extremely fast down a dirt road and listening to AC/DC’s “Shoot To Thrill.”
