        Ummmmmm I cant quote a page (no rule book here at the moment) but it
was (is!) actually stated in one of the E40k rule books that a person firing can
 elect to pass and then choose to fire in his turn (ie I shoot you pass I shoot
you pass I shoot you shoot) at any time later . Of course this could theoretically lead to the stupid situation of both players passing continuously till everyone gets bored and packs up...... This IS different to SM/TL (or how we played
it anyway) but it IS in the book (I had it pointed out to me in one game when
my opponent asked why didnt I pass at one stage.....Well I guess that was at
2am so he might have slipped one by me. Ill look for the reference tonight.)
And yes I did mean the latter of the 2 situations you presented :). This DOES
cut back skimmers a lot.....
