Hitch up a trailer full of infantry ammo to a truck and it will be pulling lead as well.

Somehow though, I think he wants something else.....

I don't know, but I been told, it's hard to run with a weight of gold.
I don't know, but it's been said, it's just as hard with a weight of lead.

Basically the same as deflection shooting.

Its not 'pulling led', its 'pulling leed' by the way in case anyone is confused at the same English spelling of lead and lead. (pronounced led and leed) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

it means the opposite of pushing lead, something that is much harder apparantly.

Also the same one that invented silent "w"'s. If you don't pronounce it in "write", then why can't you write "wbiology?" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Ah, this is completely OT, sorry. I will stop now

Keeping your piper in front of the bandit is pulling leed. Deflection shooting as Xiolablue said.

"Pulling lead" is what the base M.O. is usually doing after I land.

Hmm...I always thought that 'pulling lead' is what you are doing when you are in the lead position of a break-away (as in bicycle racing). If you ever were seriously into bicycle road racing, that phase's meaning makes total sense. I'm suprised to see it used here.

Do you mean 'leading' your target? If so, then what you do is place your gunsight ahead of the target, so your bullets and target will arrive in the same place at the same time.

I thought it was "pulling aluminum". Or is it "alu-MIN-ium".

Herbs or Erbs...

Tyres or Tars...

I'm so confused... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

"Pulling Lead" as I understand it is what the dental hygenist does after she is finished with the X-rays and she removes it from on top of your chest. They usually hang it up behind the door.
