MADISON - A former U.S. Navy supply officer pleaded guilty Tuesday to illegally possessing dozens of machine guns at his rural Chippewa County home. Federal prosecutors charged David Carmel, 32, of Gilman, with having 60 machine guns in June. He's also charged in federal court in New York with trying to sell weapon-mounted laser sights he allegedly stole from the military. Carmel faces up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 when he is sentenced Nov. 27 on the Wisconsin charge, although Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura Przybylinski Finn said he could get a lighter sentence in exchange for his guilty plea under federal sentencing guidelines. Carmel, dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit with his head shaven, told U.S. District Court Judge John C. Shabaz he understood his plea. He told the judge he's being treated for a mental illness, but was in control of his "faculties." "Yes, your honor, I am guilty," he said. Federal investigators learned about Carmel after discovering someone was trying to sell a destroyed rifle scope on eBay in April 2006. Laser scopes must be destroyed when they're no longer used under a Defense Department directive. They tracked the account to Carmel, and an undercover agent asked Carmel in May to take him shooting. Carmel was arrested shortly before he was to meet the agent at the Leinenkugel's Brewery. Federal agents discovered a cache of weapons on the 40 acres Carmel shares with his parents, including about 80 machine guns, a rocket launcher, artillery shells, dozens of grenades and a tank. Przybylinski Finn said prosecutors aren't sure where Carmel got the machine guns. But he served as a supply officer on the minesweeper USS Shrike and bought hundreds of unneeded laser sights, machine gun parts and night vision goggles for the ship, the New York complaint said. Carmel, a lieutenant, was relieved of his supply duties for misappropriating government property and misusing his authority. He left the Navy in 2005. Under the plea agreement, Carmel or a person he designates will be allowed to keep any weapons that are lawful. Carmel's attorney, Chris Kelly, said nothing in court besides agreeing with the judge. He didn't immediately return a message left at his office.

alternator would I need to power shields for forward, rear, and both sides?
If I can't blast them into oblivion, I need the shields for defense.
By the way, I seem to already have the cloaking device. :wootdnc:
