Counterpoint: A redneck with a squirt gun could shoot down your euro-trash.
My dear misguided Mr. Paginini, you lament the fact that Jack Bauer shot down one of your paper mache helicopters with a handgun. We sympathize. Really, we do. Unfortunately, the problem resides in neither your design nor your technology; it lies in your "We Love The World" Mission Statement.
"American Eurocopter?" Please. The only reason for such a title is to capitalize off the popularity of The Discovery Channel's American Chopper. And Mikey is not amused. Any joint venture between our country and some goose-stepping morons, spaghetti-eating Romeos, or wine-sipping, beret-wearing prima donnas is doomed to failure. Did you think for one minute that your Old World thinking would be any match for New Age American ammunition. I think you overestimate your chances.
Mr. Paginini - if that is your real name - when you want a versatile killing machine that won't break apart like a cookie in Kirstie Alley's chubby little digits, may I suggest you buy 100% American? When was the last time you saw Airwolf shot down?

Point: Jack Bauer could not have shot down one of our AS 350 Ecureuil Helicopters with a handgun.
