composite 9mm glocks apart from being very hard to see on an xray machine are ideal in the SALT WATER ENVIRONMENT,originaly the idea came from south africa (armsco) for use by our special forces,the original design only the firing pin was steel......................

I can't see any relevance of this thread to cruising or boating. It seems pretty obvious, from its current trajectory, that it's going to consume an inordinate amount of moderator attention, and will soon be closed.

Our moderators have a great deal to contribute in terms of cruising knowledge and experience. Wasting their time with off-topic threads makes that knowledge and experience less available to the forum on issues that concern cruising.

Remember folks guns don't kill people .... moderators who are tired of gun threads kill people (and hey ... I've only been doing it for a couple of days)!

Perhaps I do see the relevance of the original post.

Each time I sail I run a gauntlet of those sworn to "protect and serve". Boarding to check my poo-poo pump out valve is locked. Boardings by Fish & Wildlife, local Sheriffs patrols, Local police, Homeland Security, Coast Guard - all wanting to know where I'm going, what I'm doing and check my "papers" ala 1939 Germany. All this in the "land of the free"......

Perhaps the relevance lies in the knee jerk reaction of governments to every incident by some miscreant mutt. More laws - more regulations - more surveillance - less personal dignity and freedom.

Hey Boatman61. Get ready to show your tired old bod to the X-ray machines and maybe get a good grope (sorry - no drink first or even a kiss) when you head back home. Remember what your Mum told you about always wearing clean underwear!!

Well I guess you managed to sneak the world sail in there so it wouldn't be entirely an unrelated political rant ... I don't know ... cutting it close.
