Sadly I lost all my firearms during a home invasion of our cabin up north. Warning to all, Bigfoot is now armed!

Glad you guys made it out in one piece- and that will teach you for laughing at those of us that were on that horrible Cinco de Mayo boat excursion down South.

Fortunately I escaped with with my life. Luckily no hands were lost, there were 8 of us including the crew I did have to sit in the hot sun while waiting for rescue. But alas, sad sad day, my entire collection is lost as sea. I know I should be thankful that all my buddies made it back in one piece. But alll my gear, all my firearms are all in Davy Jones' Locker.

I'm ready to /wrist.
Dude! You are like the 3rd person I've heard say that boating accidents have taken their collections to the locker in the last year! I say go find Jack Sparrow and get them back! If nothing else, it would be an amusing trip!

All you people telling us these stories, do any of you insure you firearms? I know I don't carry all my stuff in one place at one time, call me paranoid if you wish, but I also have a fully insured arsenal! It costs next to nothing to get a personal articles policy to cover $10,000, I think it's like $135 a year. I know if I ever take on of mine on a boat I'll make sure my policy is up to date though, as it sounds like dead pirates are updating their stocks.

Yeah but Jack's ship is down there with all the guns! Hurricane Sandy got it.

No doubt a lot of gun owners were on board (with their entire gun collection) as they headed down the Atlantic Coast at the wrong time.

All the better. Jack's already gotten his ship back once....

I dunno, Jack's got to fight Davy Jones on his home "turf" for his Bounty!

You will always remember this as the day that Davy Jones "almost" caught Captain Jack Sparrow!
