352 on my second try (thanks to Dave for the Pig hint).

Only got 199 the first time, but then again, I’m one of those Ivory Tower liberal “elites” so, maybe, I secretly want the Russians to win…

321, but I’m slow. Hey, the accordianist is playing “I’m a Lumberjack and I’m Okay” from Monty Python.

I somehow managed to get a negative score? -87!

I did do better the second time though, -84.

Progress!

344….Alan got 378?

Sheesh, shooting missiles is hard. Maybe I’ve underestimated Palin all along.

“Palin” has one “L”, not two. The game screen gets it right.

384 is the max. I got it with the wacom tablet, and the gun never fires a blank..

Phil, I think you’re right, 384 is the highest score you can receive. If you tap really fast on your Cintiq or Wacom tablet, it’s like a machine gun that never runs out of ammunition.

I’m officially sick of that Davy Crockett song.
