He is a good article on guns on planes. He argues that it is a good idea(which we already know), but the better part is where he explains what would happen if a bullet did penetrate a plane. Check it out: [url]http://www.nationalreview.com/kopel/kopel091401.shtml[/url]

All the experts I've heard lately say the same thing. Bullet holes are way too small to have any more than a negligable effect on cabin pressure. That much leaks out of the plane anyway. About the B-17s- My father was in the Pacific and told me he saw B-17's with holes in them big enough "to fit a car into" that still flew.

B-17's weren't pressurized
