Re: Guns on a Boat, Yes or No?

Minor nit-pick, but unless it's changed the Barrett is a semi-auto, not a bolt.

Well then just don't go there......oh wait you have a job to do. hmmmmm guess the "just avoid the pirates" plan won't work for you. Remember to try not to hurt any poor fishermen who was forced into a life of crime. Best of luck and don't forget to make sure your white flag is very clean so it can be seen from a distance.

You can purchase it both ways. The bolt action is considerably less expensive but more commonly found in the civilian market due to the smaller price tag.

Re: Guns on a Boat, Yes or No?

One I shot on the range in Korea was a semi-auto, I think all the Military ones are.
Rangers were on the range and I showed them around the helicopter, they let me shoot their Barrett, it's not normally a weapon an aviation unit has.

Ever seen a Mark 19? Now that is an interesting weapon

The Barrett 82 is semi-auto firing the .50 BMG, the Barrett 99 in .50 BMG is the bolt action model that the Coast Guard uses.

This is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Thank you HopCar

On a more serious note I wouldn't recommend anything that can poke holes in your hull unless you have decided to hunt krill.

Re: Guns on a Boat, Yes or No?

For my part I am concerned that Weavis has an unhealthy attraction to turtles...likely I might find my right to deep fry turtles infringed if his view was to become law! Further it is clear to me that Atoll never gets in trouble over his guns because when arriving in port he always has lovely women on hand to charm officials. On the other hand the rest of us would likely end up like the US Marine rotting in jail for trying to declare his weapons in n Mexico.

Re: Guns on a Boat, Yes or No?

A Barrett? Who'd want a little toy like a .50 caliber Barrett when the toy store has such better options...like the GAU-8 Avenger, the 30 millimeter (that'd be ~1.20 caliber if you wanted to count that way) hydraulic "Gatling" gun from the Warthog?

Or, a handy Phalanx turret, borrowed from one of those bigger gray boats?

You know, like the gunners on the battleships used to say, if there's enough target left to do a damage assessment on, you shoulda used a bigger gun. Much less paperwork to file that way.

Re: Guns on a Boat, Yes or No?

A gun that fires turtles would be highly effective, even at a very modest muzzle velocity.

Perhaps a separate forum for the carrying of Turtles on board complete with a naked woman holding a turtle.

Though I think it was initially Tortises he was advocating.

Tortoises can be used in place of clay pigeons if trap shooting is your thing.....

Tortoise shmortis..just cause they are bigger doesn't make them more important! Best of all if you chose to throw them over board rather than declare them or eat them, they will just paddle along on their own. Try that with a tortoise.

How about harvesting up some turtle chips.

Now where is that fryer on a boat thread?
