So what are the two Carribean Islands is it illegal to posses a fire arm and how does this relate to Cruisers who declare them?

Because we think that all people who do carry guns are making our lives out here in the real world less safe. Yep, the gun-toters could get us killed.

Holding a gun is like when someone is holding your short and curlies... you only think one thing.

Like I said You Have No Relance To This Thread you don't carry a gun! Maybe you should carry a gun to protect yourself from all us gun wackos. Have you ever seen an innocent person killed because they couldn't defend themselves? I have, it changes your view of the World!

Ah come on Martinini! If you want us to condon your right to bare arms. You gotta let us have free speech.
Anybody remember the percentage of gun incidences for different types of gun related deaths? I think the largest was suicide, then murder of people who know each other etc.

Carry a Gun on Board?
I plan to fly down to St Vincent next week, pick up a sailboat, and sail from St Vincent up to Florida. Is it wise to carry a pistol? I have read a few articles about vandels boarding at night, and or stealing, robbing and a few rapes in the southern Caribbean areas. I have not been able to find to much info online about the "laws" in the islands. I was surprised my "Cruising Guides" I bought to read, don't even mention the laws. Seems people are afraid to talk about the issue. What I gather is: You can carry a gun on board, but most countries don't want you to carry it on land. You have to "check it in" with customs when your flight arrives. When departing on sea, get it back. Then keep it onboard ( where you want it, the rest of the trip ). I am not looking for moral pros and cons. I would like to know the laws, and practical "real life" way to be safe. I know how to use a gun, and will not shoot myself in the foot.

Martinini, Its an open forum.
Im still of opinion that if you are going to carry firearms you need to shoot first.
And if one is so paranoid that you have to carry a gun on a sailboat, I think you have other issues that need to be dealt with./ Harry

To get back on track, I prefer to be armed but I don't leave the US. My choice is a shotgun. Dave

You put the last nail in the coffin. I've been going back and forth on what to do with three pistols I've accumulated along the way now that we're moving onto a boat. Tried to sell them here in La. but nobodies working right now and every ten year old already has a complete arsenal. I decided to give them as presents to people who have really helped me out getting my boat together. Two of the pistols were given to me by lawyer friends who were moving back east and thought I might need them, so giving them as presents seems OK.

I must say that in the 40 years I've owned guns I've had a lot of fun with them blasting away at the moon in drunken drug crazed stupors, but as self defense they were useless. I did shoot my TV at the behest of my lovely wife some 30 years ago and I chased off some jerk that was trying to score drugs at 4 AM, but that hardly constitutes self defense.

No, I tried to avoid argument, at least in that "regulations" post.
It may have been the regulations themselves, or just good sense [] that convinced you.
What’s “om padi padi” mean?
