Flare guns can easily fire 12 gauge shotgun shells(although not repeatedly or safely)..

Youtube is full of tips on this.

As far as archery goes.. For survival it sounds like a decent idea but for defense? Sounds like a way to get yourself into more trouble.

In all honesty if you haven't trained to use whatever you have and trained well its just a "piece of mind" thing.. The problem is the false sense of security.. Bear mace is shockingly effective even against an armed assailant.

Some people put a handgun in the boat, shoot it a bit and think they're covered not knowing that up against rifles/shotguns it lacks accuracy and firepower.

If you're thinking "pirates" they'll probably be very well armed.
