    Back in the day when I was teaching Jar Heads to disassemble the Hispano Suiza 20mm there was a recoil spring that could kill you if you were not very careful. I never had a vidieo camera but could have won AFHV filming the Marines who ignored my advise! Punched a hole in a wall locker door on one occasion!

      I do not recommend it. You will NEVER get it back together and when I say it has a tough spring...I mean it is tough!!

        I like the wind up radio's and have one for the house. For my every day carry bag in the car I carry the 2x AA battery powered Gundig World Radio shortwave receiver. The radio is slightly larger than a pack of cards but has one feature I find indespensible a radio alarm that turns on the radio at a pre-set station. I think I paid $20 for it but can't find a link for it to share with everyone though there are some fancier ones now that are $40+ on the site. It also has a 12v adapter port/plug but I haven't tested that.

        For me the danger of outlasting the AA's I carry is balanced by my knowledge that if I haven't made it home by the time they run out I'm probably not going to make it any way. I have standardized on the AA battery for everything but my home gear that uses the cr123's.
