some time ago (2 yrs maybe) there was a thread on some sailing forum (on this one, or SSCA, or Sailnet... my first guess is it was on Sailnet) but I don't recall
which one. It was a lengthy discussion on other weapon options other than guns
, which included as I recall how to use flare guns
, camelflouging shot gun shells for this purpose, etc
In light of the latest tragedy in Thailand
, and one who currently lives in NZ so am well aware of Peter Blake being dead likely because he carried a gun (pls no debate on that), this latest tragedy reminded me of that old thread.
I'm interested in learning
more about the Flare Gun option, or for that matter other options cruisers have used (other than guns and a machete). If anyone knows of the thread I am referring to, I would appreciate having a copy of it or be able to access it. I'm also intersted in learning
about other alternatives cruisers have had on board (again other than guns).
Again, and at the risk of repeating myself, I'm NOT AT ALL interested in starting another "guns-no guns" debate.
Thanks in advance.
