This will really stop the pirates

I can't imagine how this would fail to stop most pirates.* Imagine the surprise when they board, and get 300 gallons of MACE dumped in their face! I guess once they figure it out they might don gas masks, but till then, look out.............Arctic Traveller

I'm still looking for an operating 20 mm cannon with ammunition.* With that, I won't have to worry which way the wind is blowing.* (Intelligent pirates will approach you from upwind.)

RE: This will really stop the pirates

I see another sailing yacht has been seized by Somali pirates. This yacht was on a 7 year odyssey. Why do some boaters* not get the *message? My sense is braving storms and braving perilous waters merged as a concept.

Sunchaser,
I agree. SV Quest with 4 Americans on board. Even though they were 275 miles offshore they were still seized.

RE: This will really stop the pirates

The Islamic world has always been a great place to be a pirate, what with the enthusiasm for returning to the idyllic 12th century so many yearn for.* When I make a complete list of the places I want to visit in a boat, Somalia ranks right below Death Valley.

Wow. *A 410 handgun. *I had a 410/22 over-under rifle, but the 410 shell had a bit of kick. *In a handgun....I dunno about holding the kick, but the sound would be convincing.

RE: This will really stop the pirates

It's a 2 handed piece. I've fired it off handed; the recoil is about like a .45 magnum, and my hand comes up over my head single handing. It is an impressive piece.

Wow, and who said Americans never invent anything anymore....

I'm getting one of those and taking it to Handguns, Whiskey and Hardball night at the Mariners.

Remember that when you take the boat up into Canada that they don't allow the Personal protection Pepper Spray. Be sure that it is labeled as Bear Protection Spray. The Shot Gun shouldn't be any problem though. Jeff, I think that about three gallons of the Bear Spray otta cover the Traveler.

A *slug from a 45 *will *after all *:-

Pick you up.


Turn you round.


Knock you back 6 feet.


Change your mind.


Send you on your way.


Oh ! *& makes allot of noise.

You watch too many movies.* If the above was true, the same would happen to the shooter (for every action, there is an equal and opposite action).

It is time to change the subject over to bilge pumps.

Boy, I don't know if any respecting pirate would be deterred by being threatened with having bilge water pumped on them.* Unless perhaps you swung it over your head on its cord whilst making grimacing faces.*

However, defending yourself with soft fruits and vegetables is also an option, as this video shows:

Those are pretty common in Texas. There is a cool derringer if you want even smaller, that has a .45 on one barrel and a .410 in the other. Couple that with some creative loads...
