Re: Shot gun used; Matt Rutherford glad he had it

I'd prefer to be a "happy child" and hope everything turns out copacetic.

Maybe in your part of the world where you are used to guns going off.
If you popped one of in my neighbourhood there would be 3 people on the street that probably would drop dead from fright.
Not to mention a swarm of coppers wanting to put down the mad man with a gun..

Plus as has been mentioned before, if they were actually armed boarders, they would have shot the **** out of shotgun boy and his boat.

Do you still claim shooting into the air puts no one at risk?

but in this case no one was physically harmed. Both boats were likely frightened, so it's fair play.
Yeah, cause guns and shootin **** is fun
Remind me never to sail anywhere near you.
You sound like a dangerous man.

One of the pre-requisites for becoming a moderator is the gift of clairvoyancy. That's how we knew, even before you did, that this thread was going to go bad, and that members would start hurling personal and nationalistic insults at each other...

That's why we lit the flame button, and you even promised to be nice before you posted here. Jeesh, some folks just never listen.

Sorry folks, thread closed.
