Members don't see this ad.
The word gets thrown around sdn enough, to use it is a sure enough way to a start flame throwing thread, so what is a gunner?
I asked my dad and this is what he said (being a vet and all that):

In war, gunners are offensive and defensive.
Gunners are a necessary part of a strategic offensive force, but not the ONLY part.
Gunners are productive in that they produce casualties among the enemy forces.

The negative connotation of "gunner" might have come from Joe McCarthy's nickname: Tailgunner Joe because he appeared to "gun down" people indiscriminately.

So lets get it on! Gunners, good or bad? A necessary evil? Or wouldn't want to go to med school without one in your pocket?

I believe there are already previous post on this selected topic? Just hit a search and look around. But if you don't feel like it, then you in fact are the opposite of a 'gunner'.
