I fear I am more Orwell than Teddy .. be that Nugent or Roosevelt.

Ray,

I've been known to catch the odd fish, kill and eat it as well. I can even understand people who hunt e.g deer to eat and I fully understand hunting for clothing, food and the like.

It is hunting purely for the supposed joy of killing that I cannot for the life of me understand.

I am a new guy and should probably keep my mouth shut....but what the heck. 1st off to the original question- I am new to sailing but when or if the time comes to go outside of our waters yes I will carry. That said it will be something of no great value incase it gets taken. Most likely a tarus judge effective for predatory animals both two and four legged. If i need something bigger im probably screwed any way. Although i would do my homework and follow the recieving countries rules ( unless they say no guns, then ill take my chances)As for hunters...well I are 1. We are not all bad. I have grown up hunting and fishing and we do not kill what we don't eat. My dad made sure that was a lesson not forgotten at an early age as did his. Personally I am just as happy with a doe as a monster buck. The doe typically tastes better but the horns are nice once in a while too. As for using a tazer for self defense....well some people especially on certain drugs are not effected much. As a Seabee we trained with them and unfortunately found out first hand what they do and don't do to you. Most of us me included dropped but a few did not. So yes I think they are useful in a pinch but donot replace a bullet. I hope I do not need either but if I do I prefer the option. At the very least a good bow will be with me never know when the chance to get my own dinner may come up.

I believe that I'd want to have something if I was sailing with my family in international waters.

I wouldn't hesitate for one single second to rid the world of a pirate.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't lose one single second of sleep over it either.

I carry a basic Taurus M92 9mm. I only have access to lakes so salt is not an issue but I think it would be generally a bad idea to expose it to a a marine environment. I think I would like to get the Model 870 Special Purpose Marine Magnum shotgun. Boating and skeet shooting in one trip! What fun! Well, at least I suspect it will be fun, See I just bought my first boat, a 85 US Yacht 25 and I'm going for my first sail in a couple of weeks.

I carry 2 AR15's, 2 Cobray M11-9 SMG's, and 2 Glock 9mm pistols, 2000 rounds of ammo and a 12 gauge pump shotgun... Im not a drug smuggler, trafficer or anything of the sort, I just dont want to be a victim like the members of Joe-Cool or the couple in Somolia, if I my wife and I go down, im gonna take a few with me, and make them regret their decision to prey on pleasure craft...

What is your intended route? The countries you are visiting should be notified of your impending arrival. Either to hold your weapons and ammo while you are there or in some cases to get a cell ready.
