Backstay, never bought a suit, never went to Vegas
Ever sailed between Trinidad and Venezuela? Or between Grenada and Martinique? How about off the east coast of Kenya? Personally, I wouldn't want to have to shoot someone, but I'd feel better knowing that I could, if the situation arose. I do think I'd prefer a shotgun though.
It's like the windbreaker and baseball hat I always have in whatever vehicle I am driving at the moment. Usually an umbrella too, though I haven't actually used one in many years. Better to have it, and not need it, than need, and not have it......
