Re: Gun question

Tape the end of the barrel shut, and squirt a lot of WD 40 in the bore, then close the breach, when storing a gun on board, to eliminate corrosion in the bore.

and you can sail on a nice quiet protected lake instead of the ocean where its SOOOOO much more dangerous.

gun question

if you are beyond a states territorial sea and you pose no harm to any US Flag Vessel and do not interfere with import/export or military operations your in the clear. Just use common sense and use radar if you have it to look for possible vessels in the area.

Human nature. Sure is fun to argue when you're right, though, which is also human nature.

The idea it "leaches into the environment" is the very thing I did the math on, so throw that out unless you've got better math. The only valid point you have, and it's a point I've already conceded, is that lead released from guns might make it into the food chain by some critter eating it. That's why I use steel shot in shotguns. I asked you if there were any fish that eat .22 bullets, and didn't hear any response, so unless you can dig one up this case is closed.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I founded my company in 2009 and work quite hard, and I'm the most talented person I've ever met at what I do. But it doesn't take up 40 hours of my week, because of the economy, which leaves enough time to throw some numbers together about (rofl) "lead from bullets leaching into the environment, ten miles off shore."

You still have a lame argument and haven't done well supporting it. I'll let you continue to support my position.

Agreed, lead host is not legal for waterfowl anymore.

The issue of lead shot ingestion is one primarily in non-eutrophic lakes, and specifically on hard bottomed, sandy ones. In eutrophic lakes, lead shot quickly sinks into the substrate, and continues to sink.

The blanket elimination of lead shot was made to ensure a consistent enforcement regime. I am aware of at least one jurisdiction whose biologists had no concerns with lead shot, due to virtually all water bodies in that jurisdiction being eutrophic.

Elimination of lead shot is a good thing, I am just saying that there are circumstances where it is not a concern.
