Oh boy, please no more baiting or debate on right or wrong about guns. You don't like guns, well then, you have posted your ignorance even though the spelling is correct. Don't start baiting people by calling them ignorant on account of some technical detail, that is called baiting. Baiting is just showing YOUR ignorance.

How many times did your family members use their "boat guns" to defend themselves from pirates, drug runners, or boat thieves? Seems to me like the best way to get killed is to grab a shotgun when being approached by a boat full of armed criminals.

Good thing that intelligence and responsibility are universal traits among gun owners -- otherwise it might make sense to mention the need to not leave it on board.
You obviously are just looking to be a jackass and controversial. You were successful in your endeavor ! You took my statements and twisted them to your anti agenda. But all can see, that your just a troll. This thread was and will continue to be on a good track of individual ideas and thoughts and it seems no one but you have had a problem with whats been said.

OP, thank you for your support and reply to my post. You made a great choice. Happy boating to the real contributors. I usually just ignore Trolls Seen someone mentioned an Uzi, now that would be great in keeping away multiple boarders !

GREAT QUOTE!!!

, if you are carrying a firearm for protection, you’d better be comfortable killing someone with it if the situation merits it.

Either way, good luck and best wishes with the endeavor.

so easy to state the obvious here...isnt it?...are you aware that thousands of times a year guns are used to thwart crimes without a shot being fired (cdc/fbi data...sorry, cnn doesnt report shit like this)...then there is the relevant quote "i guess if youre more comfortable being killed than possibly stopping an attack, injuring or killing someone else, then feel free to do just that."....

It would be great to see those stats Everyone uses anecdotal stories to prove good and bad. Usually it's all talk both ways it's a little harder for a non criminal to kill someone and I'm sure FBI stats back that up.

Again its opinions and guesses.

the big mistake is Bernard Goetz bragged about it.... look it up.

Despite Florida law that allows you to not only carry on a boat but you can open carry also. Fishing, Hunting or Camping. But I was stopped a couple of weeks ago by a Marine Federal agent. Asked if I had any weapons on board. No I said, never carry.

youre the anecdotal one..the stats are available if you really want to see them...just google the information and then join a conversation educated instead of with a captain obvious quote that only shows one side of the possible story...how many people do you think took a bullet while they were thinking "i wish i had a gun right now."?...

Back on track people.

This isn't a thread for those who do not like guns to come and state why they don't like them.

He asked what gun you carry on your boat. If you do not like them it is obvious that you do no carry one.

A simple none is enough.

The one boarding me will probably shit their pants.

However, let’s get back on track and answer the OP his question instead of posting shit chat, shall we?

I transferred an Uzi pistol for a guy a couple years ago - no thanks, is a clumsy, heavy brick.

Virtually everyone has an AR these days and they tuck away just oh so neatly.

So getting us out of the rat hole that we seem to have fallen into. OP, a pistol on board is great for relatively close distance protection. Most people are not going to fire a pistol with any accuracy beyond 15 - 20 yards. On the extreme, they will hit a target at 25 - 30 yards. Yes there are exception, but statistically if you are further away, a pistol will be of little use. A shotgun is a bit better with further range, but not much. I believe something like 40 yards if you are using buck shot, and a bit further for a slug. A traditional long gun will provide significantly longer range. So the question I would ask myself, what scenarios do I want the protection of a gun for? and based on the answer, I would lock into the style gun that meets these scenarios.


On a side, was at range Sunday with my 16 YO, man this kid can shoot. Two lanes over is a couple, they brought 7 or so hand guns. They have all of them on the back table, not the bench where they are supposed to be. I notice the woman is picking up various guns and moving the pile around. At one point she picks up a pistol with her pinky on the trigger. I notice there is a mag still in it and she is pointing the business end directly at my 16 YO. I quickly react, grabbing the business end and pointing towards the wall. Woman looks at me shocked, I try to explain the concern as I take the gun from her. I drop the mag, which was full, and clear the chamber. As the round goes air born the man comes over and starts yelling at me. I try to be nice, though I am pretty pissed off so I am sure I didn't come off so nice, and explain what just occurred. He is heated, so F-it. I go get one of the guys managing the facility. I didn't say anything, just asked him to check out people in lane 6. It took him all of 1 second to start swearing and moving quickly into the range. The couple was asked to pack and leave, but not until the manager disarmed each pistol, leaving the range with all their ammo first. Spoke with manager after, explained what happened before hand, he apologized as his team is supposed to be monitoring the range and ensuring these things don't happen. Scary how clueless people can be about proper handling of guns. No matter what, make sure you are properly trained.

Some Mexican fueled poo poo in a frangible plastic bag would be very effective, entertaining and affordable

You might want to look at the Tavor X95 .556 or .308 24" of fun!

Using a gun on a boat that is offshore is not going to improve your accuracy.
