Ive owned MANY & gave them all away ( not sold given)..

Thier comes a time one understands your mind is faster than a bullet & sharper than a knife.

Needless to say I have no fear in me & haven't for a long time . hopefully getting into the middle of the ocean might bring some back ...but I dout it

Now, now. I was of the opinon that this IS a sailing forum. This s not to be meant as a forum of digression into the keeping of firearms.
We cannot even have a discussion about 'em without some hostility.
Nuff said already.
We share a COMMON love...SAILING. not deadly force

All ranting and slights aside, no, I don't carry a gun aboard or ashore. I do own some and I'm well trained in their use.

Glock 9mm. I never leave home without it.

I do however leave it secured in my automobile when only going out for a day sail. If I am going out overnight or longer the Glock comes along as well.

I do NOT currently sail outside of U.S. waters. In the future if I am to venture further I will take a look at the laws of the foreign ports before making a decision. I have read that it is possible to convert a flare gun to shoot a regular 12 gauge shell and this may be what I do in the future.

I believe that people get out of life exactly what they are looking for. I personally don’t entertain the idea of trouble in my life that would ever require a firearm, and therefore I don’t own one.

So, we aren't allowed to respond to other posters in this thread?

Point

Sorry, I suppose I missed your point. In fact I'm still not sure I understand it. Sorry to be so thick headed.

rockDAWG,

The rantings of the USAian pro- and anti-RKBA factions, and the condescending lectures from those outside the U.S. aside: I would suggest you not consider it. You are correct in your observation that "times have changed," but the ways they've changed in the U.S. are the opposite of the ways they've changed in the rest of the world with respect to governments recognizing an individual right to self defense. If you get caught with a firearm in the vast majority of jurisdictions throughout the world outside the U.S.: The best you can probably hope for is they'll merely confiscate your firearm(s). As for inside the U.S.: Even that might be tricky. Most U.S. jurisdictions have prohibitions against carrying a concealed weapon, and having a loaded, ready-to-use firearm in your transportation is regarded by many jurisdictions as "carrying a concealed weapon."

Even if you were in U.S. waters, possessed a state-issued carry license, and that state's carry license was recognized and honoured by the jurisdiction you were in: Anything other than a concealed pistol might be a violation. (Michigan, where I live, issues Concealed Pistol Licenses," not concealed weapon licenses. The distinction is critical.) Note that violating U.S. state or federal weapons laws is often a felony.

Jim
