Guns? Hunters?

Does anyone have restricted or unrestricted weapons onboard and if so, what did you do to pacify the gun legislation?

I am starting to wonder if there are more inside jokes on the number of gun threads than there are actual gun threads. To me it seems just as annoying.

Re: Guns? Hunters?

Just the title should have stopped the thread in its tracks - guns AND Hunters! Leaving out Rocnas was just plain amateurish.

That was my first thought, but I think he means "hunters" as in "people who hunt."

Otherwise, yes, a proper troll would have asked, "If I use a Rocna to anchor my Hunter, how many guns should I have on board?"

Googling legal stuff is kind of annoying. It's easier to ask people who might have experience.

Probably most of the moderators. These threads demand significantly more attention than the "What's the best bedding compound to use on bronze portholes" threads.

Guns should only be brought aboard boats with canoe sterns, as they are the only ones stable enough to shoot from accurately.

Consult the charts!

H34 = .22 long
H37 = .38 special
H410 = .357 magnum
H466 = .45 acp
H49 = .44 magnum

I'd recommend anchor sizes as well, but that gets kinda controversial.

Don - I think all Hunters should have guns aboard, glue guns.
