Pass the spuds

Got propane? If not, deodorant or hairspray will work. Ammo is pretty flexible too. Check this out.

Disassembed, it could pass for a (large) manual bilge pump.

How about a soda to go with those fries? Video showing 20 oz soda bottles going thru 3/4 inch plywood like it was paper. http://spudtech.com/movies/asf/megalauncher6.mpg

Cool, I'd forgotten about ISG's (Improvised Spud Guns)! Attach a little laser pointer and at 50 yards it looks enought like a RPG launcher that most unarmed pirates would probably opt to reciprocate bearings!

I know we opted not to carry that Taurus, thinking a normal revolver loaded with "snake shot" would be a lot better than the Judge. It is almost as much of a flop as the Patriot pistol, which was a handgun made to fire the .223 or 5.56mm NATO round. It looked cool with lots of flame coming out every which way but would malfunction after 1 or maybe 2 rounds. I wouldn't plan on reloading, since rimless cartridges and revolver type extractors have never gotten along well. At least with a revolver you will get all 5 rounds going downrange. Since those countries that ban firearms are Draconian about ammunition as well this one you are going to be left with an expensive flare gun.

Very interesting tread on a very important question !
Anyway, to add a line of thought :
I remember reading a few years ago about a frenchie who rigg a scuba tank to a pvc pipe to throw some molotoff cocktails at incoming pirates !!
I am pretty sure that our american friends with their unparrallel knack with weapons will find us something in this line of thought
After all most cruising yacht have scuba tanks on board and they are not yet designed as weapons
So something using scuba tanks compressed air to throw a lethal projectile ??
Up to your drawing board
