What gun should I have on my boat?

Recommended Posts

This place needs a little more cross- board interaction. We all tend to hide in our own area of the forums.  The Sailing board guys endlessly discussing saving sailing and rules, The cruising anarchy gang hanging out with Bob Perry and ragging on Rimus and the AC anarchy guys making new sock puppets to call each other cunts. So since Greta got a carbon neutral trip over to PA, i thought we could drag a few over here for a look. So all you PA dwellers put some pants on, give the window one last lick and come on over...

What is the best gun to take cruising? I mainly want it in case of a Zombie Apocalypse, for shooting fish in a barrel and to pick up chicks.

Thoughts?

I have a muzzle-loading cannon that fires golf balls.

Far better use for them than what the idiots who think golf is a sport put them to.

Good point - but what if I get really drunk and someone pisses me off? How do I stop myself wasting the mother fucker?

Is that what they call a 'shorn-off'? I don't want to shot any sheep - just people I don't like.

I have a big bungy cord slingshot that shoots condoms full of water and eggs, but it takes a while to set up.

I have always wanted to say 'Go ahead punk, make my day' and then watch their head disappear in a pink mist. I probably shouldn't mention that fantasy when I am getting my permit, hey.

No, you already have a job that you like. No need to join the Qld Police Force just to be a member of that particular fantasy club.

Alternatively a condom filled with rasperry jelly and a good aim could be a good simulation. Practice on jet skiers and RQYS shiny white boats...

You could always go with two flare guns. Threaten to burn their boat. If they laugh at you, threaten to burn both of the boats. Imagine some nutter aiming flare guns at two boats and he’s standing on one of them!

That's right, you sail in Queensland.

Well the choice is then informed by the target species.

Whaling gun, then?

Better reinforce the bow before you fit one though.

BTW are you *sure* about the 'thick hide' bit? From comments here I'd have said that their skulls were the thick bit. By all accounts the hide thickness can be measured in single digit microns... the muppets.

Start with I am not a “gun guy”.  
 

I got a 20 gauge pump for cruising on my personal boat.  The sound of a pump shotgun loading a round, is something that gets your attention.  After getting it, I rarely bring it aboard.  Why?
 

The first issue is once you go international, the weapon can be a PITA.  Be sure to check the rules where you are going.   Second, if I use it, and someone gets hurt or killed- no matter what happens- I am likely visit the jail for at least a few days until it gets sorted out.  Whereas the non-lethal escalations are going to leave a lot of marks on the deceased.   Bright light to disorientate(handheld spot), fire extinguisher that is in the cabin (my 33 has 3) - you get the idea.  Candidly, if they board with a weapon (rare event) hell bent to kill me, odds of survival are small.  As a former street collector for ConEd I also rely on my ability to bullshit my way out.

On deliveries, weapons are banned from my boats.

 

sorry for the thread drift

There are going to be some surprises when they try and reload.  The lass with the AK47 and shotgun cartridges is at a particular disadvantage.

2 of them are obviously not shooters. They are fingering their triggers and that could end up in a premature discharge.

Remember this place is for entertainment and not actual fact. Kind of like our media, It’s a joke. You just happen to be the only person from Texas I could use that one on and I was hoping you’d skip this thread, so don’t take it so personally. 
 

incidentally, the joke is that the Russians during WWII asked their allies the US for condoms to help reduce STD’s. The US responded with all the extra large condoms they could produce and labeled them Texas Mediums. That’s why the Russians hate us now:D

ok, if you notice I have been avoiding this place especially PA as I just realized it did nothing but antagonize people and further the polarization we are currently experiencing.  It's hard to ignore LB threads as he is both entertaining and and an insulting cunt at the same time which is why I wandered in here.  I may have over-reacted to the joke thus reaffirming my decision to back away - I seem to have developed a cult following of shit stirrers with short sticks (not you, not going there).

The video that LB captioned in PA of the Hitler bunker scene is a classic and the best ever in PA and dare I say in all of SA.  I have thick skin, wouldn't have survived all those years in that cess pool and mostly lurked in SA and CA and a couple of others, I find the rules questions interesting and informative and have learned a lot about boats - including from you - beyond just how to make them go faster which has been my sailing focus. When I let you know who know that I reported him I did not expect the petty shit stirring responses from so many SA'ers. oh well.  I had been spending way too much time here so became a good excuse to step back. 

It's all good.

If you want a long gun, semi-auto Ruger Mini 14 in Stainless is a good choice.  I have one with a 20 round magazine, that I registered with the State just before they became banned.  It's the shortest of all of my long guns.  For a handgun, I don't know.  I've had my CCW for 8 years now, and yet to purchase one.  Friends like their Glocks.

You’re not the only one who has had folks flicked. I asked Scot for some help last year and this place is all the better for it. Dark Knight didn’t do anything so bad that the Mods have locked his IP out.  Missed the thread and the content and I’m sure he’s towing the line now.

And I’m here to escape a kind of depressing time in my life so I’m just throwing confetti grenades...

Like Joe Dirt said “Keep on keeping on” and don’t ever believe that blue ice isn’t a gift from heaven- or a 747.

Also a good way of giving away your position and possible intent...... leading to you getting shot! 
 

The racking shotgun myth needs to be put to bed, it’s possibly one of the dumbest things you can do in a situation with armed aggressors.

But it works great for clearing hookers and junkies off the front door step in the city! Especially when they look up and see the end is hacksawed off for maximum dispersion at close range.

Not too bad thanks Mad, not as noticeable as the scars from the edge of the scope, age old problem of being a skinny fella :)

We had an AJ down at the range one day acting like a tool, so we gave him a few full rounds, which admittedly are a bit scary. First round gave him concussion, the next round opened a 3" long split between his eyes. At the time we were all rolling about laughing hysterically, not very cool in hindsight. But arrogant Army Jerks annoy me, so meh...he got what he deserved.

We had a black powder competition once where you got to make your own cannon. Mine blew up at firing, and I looked like a cartoon caricature , black powder burns all over my face. I wasn't the one rolling about laughing that time, but everyone else found it funny....
