What would be a good side arm in a boat?
About to buy a boat and wanted to look into which pistol would be good on a boat thinking that there is a chance of the weapon getting wet?

If you're boating near Somalia this may be what you need!

A revolver. A S&W 627, 8 shot .357 magnum.

Anything is Stainless Steel or a Polymer/Stainless combo.

Personally I see no reason for a pistol if it's for boat carry and would go with a SS/Synthetic 12 Gauge Shot Gun like a Mossberg Mariner or similar.

Nothing ends an argument like a 12 Gauge!

Hipoint because you know as well as I do that if you take an expensive pistol out there it will be at the bottom in no time.

Plus I've heard that they make great anchors.

i would also suggest the Hi Point because of it's price. i would rather see a less than $200 Hi Point sink to the bottom of a lake than a very expensive pistol. spray it with a good gun oil and keep it in a zip lock bag for protection.

All this talk reminds me of that tragic FTF boating accident...oh the agony of all that hardware going to the bottom...:(

Glock or the sig navy model.

When i'm on a boat i usually carry my beretta 92fs, leashed to my belt just in case it should drop.
