Do you carry firearms while cruising?
I don't even own a BB gun, but just wonder if any of you carry guns while cruising to unfamiliar ports?
What kind do you carry? handgun, shotgun, machine gun?
1. when cruising within U.S. water?
3. Around the world?
I have met a sailor who circumnavigated the world a few times in his 17 years living in his boat. He told me that he never carry firearms. He said guns bring more trouble with the local authority. But the time has changed. How to protect yourself and your love ones.
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
