Re: Protection

Do a search. There have been dozens of discussions that go on endlessly, and none of them ever go anywhere.

Well... Maybe what I should say is that they all end up in the same place: Anti-gun types and pro-gun types sniping at each other in various childish and petty ways.

Re: Protection

If you've only seen one comment about guns on board, then you need to spend some time learning the fine art of "search".

Re: Protection

From the title of the thread "Protection" I thought this was going to be about condoms which might be more important in some ports than guns

Re: Protection

So here we go again, soon you will have about a zillion posts about the topic.

For your personal decision it's quite easy IMHO.
If you own a gun for your personal protection at home, you will need one on your boat, or else you will probably miss something.
If you don't own a gun for that matter today, it will not increase your personal safety but instead add endless hassle to clearing in and out of countries.

Just my opinion, don't shoot me!

I don't know, I think that horse has been so beaten, that even the zealous are a little tired, now if you get offensive and get one riled up

If one feels insecure enough in ones self to need a firearm.. go for it..
Just stop trying to shove em down the throats of us folks more secure and confident in ourselves...
You think the US of A is dangerous... try the NWFP where AK47's are de-riguer fashion... and tribesmen sit on hills waiting for passing targets...

Re: Protection

I sold my guns and had a surgical penile length and girth enhancement.
Now anyone is able to see my "carry and conceal" and get excited.

Best decision I have ever made.

Re: Protection

OK, I was willing to give the last guy the benefit of the doubt... but this is just too obviously a troll. Kind of wonder if it isn't the same guy.
