The Navy ones as well as the one we had in our Rescue Truck in the fire department threw brass rods. I would hate to be on the receiving end of one of those brass rods...

We never used the one in the Rescue Truck, not sure what ever happened to it. In the Navy they were used regularly for underway replenishment, throwing the brass rod at another steel ship never seemed like that big of a deal watching it. I am sure for the guys on the receiving end it WAS a big deal :-)

I was a radarman, so I was only a spectator...
