This video is totally awesome, it shows the power of the gattling gun used on the apache and hueys.

If you haven't seen the video "Thank You America" then check that video out also, it can get you choked up.
Not necessarily. In my former digs of Memphis, Tennessee, our Handgun carry permits most certainly did NOT allow the carry of a loaded longgun, shotgun or rifle, within the confines of one's vehicle.
To get an approximation of the GI carbines that I've carried in most of the personal vehicles I've owned since high school, I had to go to a shoulder-stocked C96 *broomhandle* Mauser...with a 20-round magazine, and several reloads of interesting ammo available.
Happily, that's not a consideration for me in my present locale, though potential distances hereabouts suggest a Garand or FAL as a better choice yet. But maybe I'll add a carbine anyway, just for old times place and to make up for the time lost while I was in the Dark Kingdom of Mordor. And the Tennessee Firearms Association is working to include longguns as suitable for carry by licensed persons.
check it out... this is cool

I believe that the gun in question is most definitely a long gun. Driving around Memphis, you needs one of those babies.
Probably. But there can be exceptions....
Those will do in a pinch.
Hah! GMC Professional Grade Engineering. Not more than you need. Just more than you're used to.
LOL! That's freaking brutal. I have heard pilots say that the whole plane shakes when the big 105 is fired.
I'm not as concerned about keeping such a discrete profile.
The newest version of the AC-130, the AC-130-U, has revived the old AC-119 designation of Spooky to differentiate it from the earlier and so far more common H-model C-130 gunships, known as Spectre
In addition to the 40mm cannon and 105mm cannon of the earlier -H models, Spooky also brings a 25mm gun to work, very useful for such targets as light vehicles less deserving of 40mm or a 105mm round, or for troops in the open. And so we are back again to the Chain Guns and Gatlings.
At around 200 million per copy, I don't expect we'll be seeing enourmous flocks of the AC-130 warbirds; there are around two dozen or so on duty last I looked. But they've preoved their worth time and time again, and you'll get reasoned arguments from a lot of groundpounders as to whether they're the most beautiful aircraft in the inventory, and the most helpful.
Why would anyone make videos of rocks?
They don't generally move around much.
It's good to advertise your intentions. That leaves it up to the competition to either get out of your way or get mowed down. Either way, it's their choice.
I should really GBP! (Google Before Posting)
Laz's Perfect Airforce would have about 250 of these puppies flying around.

Of course I would like to have a video of the first rock and roll artist.
Little David, he took a rock and rolled the giant!
While 1 in 5 is standard, I suspect that at least some of the belts in the video had more like 1 in 2 or even all tracers.
If you can live with a hand cranked version, rather than one with an electric or hydraulic motor, they don't even require you to pay the "machine gun" tax, since they aren't considered machine guns. The motorized ones are, and you have to pay the Unconstitutional tax. YMMV by state of course. You can even buy one in .22 Long Rifle, if you're worried about ammo costs. :)
Actually it did, more guns. And bigger guns too, depending on the version of PMD. But even the original gooney (C-47) version had several such Gatling's. Latter versions had 20mm instead of 7.62. Of course the latest decedent the AC-130, has the gatlings, plus 40mm "pompom" type guns, plus a 105mm howitzer in the tail, just for fun. :)
The Chain gun is a different variety of externally powered machine gun than the Gatling. Generally when folks say "machine gun" though, they mean some sort of self loader that is powdered by the recoil of or the gas bled off from the fired round.

Then you would have to link them yourself. More likely, the video was shot at the maximum rate of fire for the weapon. It just is incredibly fast. The tracers also leave a ghost trail that lingers so it seems like a solid line especially in the evening shots. Looks like R2507 at Yuma.
