I think that might depend on the accuracy the pirates have. They're on a smaller boat that is subject to the rolling of the sea. If they're attacking a cruise ship or container ship, those things don't do the "rock and roll" an uncompensated small boat does. Plus, if you're firing on the pirates, they're going to be a little
excited and nervous about those incoming rounds. That, alone, would be enough to throw off their aim.
Kudos to the Italians for having the moxie to employ a private security force to protect their ass
