I was talking with my roommate a few days ago, and he told me that he plans to sail around the world someday in a 16th century-type ship, accompanied by a small crew. The trip would take a little over a year.
Anyway, we got to talking about how he would probably be sailing through some very unfriendly waters (pirates, terrorists, etc.), and he mentioned that he would definitely want to be armed. He said he'd bring some rifles, but I don't think he knows much about firearms, at least not as much as me.
So my question is: if you were to go sailing for an extended period of time, what type of firearms would you bring along with you? Keep in mind that you'll be stopping in various ports around the world to resupply your ship. Would the conditions of being at sea (saltwater, wind, etc.) affect your decision on what type of guns to carry?
Just thought that would be an interesting scenario. Any thoughts?
Off the top of my head, I'd say:
- A couple of ARs and AKs (they use ammo common around the world)
- A pump shotgun
- A 1911 in .45 ACP (of course
- A .50 cal Berret 82A1 rifle (serious stopping power)
