I know it sounds stupid since they all have a BS of 2, but if you consider that they have a pretty good long range gun on an 8pt model, have mass numbers, get bad@$$ guns for cheap(Rokkit Launcha and Big Shoota), and mathematically have the same chance of hurting a marine as a gaurdsman does(IG:4s and 5s, Orks 5s and 4s), can hurt low AV vehicles with their basic weapon, and can actually take a beating unlike most IG and Tau.
Just asking experienced Ork players on the wisdom/stupidity of my argument up there.
Well you could always say your army are feral Orks (who have BS3). You could play them then like infantry heavy Imperial Guard. Seeing as BS3 and S4 statistically they would be better shots than IG. Worth a game or two to test it out.
Sickest shooting unit i've ever seen is Ork Bikers.
10 of 'em unload 30 twin-linked S5 shots a turn, can then assault, and do it all over again.

Well some people do very well with their badmoon armies which allows you to have 6 troop choices of flash gitz. 4 normal flash gitz with BS and the 1 nob with BS. thats 90 shots a turn at 36"
Thats pretty awesome. They can also take them as elites so you could have 135 shots per turn at 36". I was also thinking Blood Axes could be pretty shooty.
I have two units of flash gitz in my bad moon army Music. While I must admit that I don't win many battles. I do get 30 St5 36'' assault shots per turn. Thats without the 15 other boyz in my mob shooting with More Dakka shoota's. In anyones langauge thats a lot of shoots even when having to hit at 5+. In one game one mob of these has taken down an Avatar in one turn of shooting.
Remember with orks, it all counts in large amounts.

Shooty ork armies are 'least' expected, so the enemy would try to prevent you from hth, cuz tehy think that you are hth them like.. the usual orks.
Though you will find that nonetheless the enemy will shoot at you, as its the way to kill you.
Though orky shooting can have some goodies..
Looted basilisk will just compliment you.
load up on tons of big shootas, and you can do well
my friend big shootas has hurt many major things in my army. heh including killing my insane khorne daemon prince...
shooty orks are rare.. and pretty odd haha.
but you can go for it its possible.
FERAL ORKS IS THE ANSWER TO SHOOTY ORKS.
