Re: Not your average gun thread...

Maybe he's from the south. Knew a southern boy once that had an old boat in his back yard that his mom told him to get rid of so they could clean up the backyard. He took it out to the river and shot it. Maybe this guy was just trying to clean up a little.

Re: Not your average gun thread...

Oh and hands down the best gun to shoot a boat with is a Ma Deuce. Any military bubbas will know what and why that is.

Re: Not your average gun thread...

An M2 would be a very good gun to shoot a boat with. The problem is the nanny state we live in makes it hard to buy Ma Deuce.
Another good option would be a good sixed cannon. All it takes is money to buy them. Perfectly legal to own. They make really big holes. What's not to like?

Re: Not your average gun thread...

The people who shot fish inside the boat were clearly tourists. I don't know if all the fish died, but at least one tourist did. We always save our cheap vodka for drinking and trading with the Russians for bad cigarettes. I tried drinking the vodka and peeing on the fish, but that didn't work. We have a saying for people who try to shoot a bear with a .357, file off the front sight so it doesn't hurt so much when he shoves it where the sun don't shine. Of course if you just shoot your partner in the knee so that you can get away you are okay. No boats were actually hurt in the making of this post.

My .357 is loaded with snake shot to repel unwanted boarders of the legged and non-legged variety, hopefully without sinking the boat and avoiding a homicide charge. Foresight is also 20-20. Don't file it off jes yet.


I'm willing to go out on a limb and predict a .357 can modify a mean monkey's mien.

Not that .357 is a great bear round, just the biggest one she's comfortable with.

Wouldn't it be smarter to shoot the shark while it's in the water alongside, instead of blasting things on deck with a sawed off? I guess it does get style points...
Wowsa... I posted and jetted yesterday leaving some ambiguous leads ... time to clarify!!!

The 410 was a short barrel with slug loads... Used on 100 to 500 lb (rare) range... ONLY used over the side... fish would be flying gaffed and tail tied... heads dispatched while tied this way...

You witness a crime.
You all laugh and joke about it.

Wow. What a f u'd world.
I dunno.... All I can say is what I saw... Guy in a sportcoat n slacks lettin' off a full load down by the waterfront behind a bunch of boats, and calmly walking off without a care of who did or did not see his piece...

Crabby... Mako and Thresher very tasty... Others for fight only... which is NOT my favorite part...

My Kimber 1911 is made from 416 stainless, but just as one of the other posters said, barrel and internals, no. The slide has some rust from being on the boat.
cheoah... too big.. too nasty... still in the water...

Dunno yet! Monkey is easily agitated... Nature of the boy... I will poke around the area when I get there... Ask the owner if he heard anything about it...

Re: Not your average gun thread...

Contemplated pre-meditated boaticide once. A local marina removed a large old derelict boat from its slip and achored it, unattended, to windward of me just before some foul weather moved in. I was watching her during the night. I had a 12 gauge loaded with slugs close at hand. My plan was to put a few rounds at the water line if she headed my way. She was poorly built glass over ply so my hope was the slugs would open up nice big holes and she would go aground (shallow anchorage) before she reached me.

I was a bit disappointed that she didn't drag. :-(

Guy comes into your yard, waves a gun around like a banana, firing it off threatening YOU and YOUR BOAT?

Guy did that in my neck of MD, the crabs would be fatter, and I would be out of Old Bay.
