Ultimate Gun Thread

All these gun postings. OK who is going/planning to have/have not.

No discussion really needed as it is pretty established that whatever court you are in you aren't going to change. But I wonder if we should start being worried about what the boat anchored to us might have on board.

Guns don't kill people; people with guns kill people.

I think more people on this forum need to worry about dying from heart disease or liver damage than pirates. You can tell a lot about someone by the risks they entertain and the ones they ignore.

Big gun in my right hand and a massive double bacon cheeseburger in my left hand; all day, every day. Breakfast lunch & dinner!

Ditto!

But I do have an old Navy flare gun that takes 12 ga shells with light reloads for up close encounters. I wouldn't want to shoot off a hi powered projectile or flare inside a boat.

An armed society is a polite society. You need only fear my guns if you are breaking into my home (boat) or come to do harm to my friends and family.
