Default Cheap

Cheap and reliable, whether a shotgun or handgun. If firearms are like the sunglasses we've owned, they don't float and deep murky water makes recovery impossible!

Firearms enthusiasts have long searched for a way to purchase guns and gun accessories affordably. Many people are now discovering that a gun auction, often referred to as penny gun auctions can multiply their purchasing power safely, quickly and affordably. Whether you’re in the market for a Tauras Judge, Ruger LCP, scope or other firearms accessories and tactical equipment you can now obtain these items from firearms penny auctions. The firearms auction arena is allowing the middleclass, blue collared man to purchase firearms and firearms add-ons at a fraction of the retail cost.

Default That was our choice.

Thank goodness it never had to be displayed. It was a very quiet trip running just outside the Intercoastal. I'm confident, if you ever had to show a "riot gun" to a threatening boat, the perps would immediately understand the significance of the potential firepower and look elsewhere for an easier target.

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!

On a related topic, be careful WHERE you carry a firearm on a boat. Where I use to boat, I could be happily/legally carrying in Pennsylvania, only to cross over into New Jersey waters and be in big trouble if discovered by NJ Five-O.

Another plus for the Ruger family of revolvers is that they can be broke completely down in a few moments with just a screw driver. If I drop my beloved Smiths into a body of water cleaning and drying them is much harder.

I have no love for Glocks bit their simplicity and corrosion resistance would give them top nod in the auto pistol category.

Does FTF stand for "Failed To Float" ?

This may seem ludicrous to my fellow forum chums but up here in Ma. I mostly freshwater bass fish on small cranberry reservoirs and farm ponds and carry a little .38 derringer in my front pocket.
You can thank me later for the laughs.
