  3. That looks great for shooting downward or maybe even horiz.....but how do you line-up the sights for the upward shot?

  4. Did you know that Clark Gable went to England with the 351st Bombardment Group i8n '43? Did some time at a waist-gunner position. Made a movie, which is on You Tube, titled Air Combat.
