Thank you, someone's paying attention. I ment by "If I get caught w/o one, down I go." that if I don't have a chute, and can't land-without-boom in water, I'm a goner and down I go in flames. When I hit the dirt after a chute I usually head for the nearest friendly base, rarely do I attempt something sneaky on the offensive.
Ah, OK. didnt know what you meant by "Down I go"
