This is for some of the combat pilots that may be here. Tried to post this the other day and messed it up. Where did the term "Golden BB" originate? ie: to catch the Golden BB. Thanks Bill

Bill Bob
Golden BB (as in BB or Ball Bearing gun)This refers to any grossly inadequate weapon that nevertheless does critical damage to your plane - such as a ground-pounder with a rifle shooting at your plane and severing the fuel line.
Being down to the BB's is having only light machine-gun ammunition

Hope this helps
Regards
Dave
