Re: Canadian Navy Practices Catch and Release With PiratesMay 8th, 2009
You have to stop them before they board. A shotgun is a good defense tool but by the time the pirates are within range it may already be too late. A .50 cal volley across the bow as a warning, if they still wish to engage I say launch a couple of five inchers into the skiffs and let the sharks take care of the evidence.
try that in the face of a few loads of buckshot.
BTW, the cruise ship that last week successfully repeled pirate borders did so with an Israeli security team......armed only with pistols.
yes I have a new job in Security........
