I find it amazing that the bad guys can be armed but the victims can not.
Just like here at home.

I suspect a few well placed .50 cal. mounts would discourage a few pirates.

Hey Sid;
You are right. But on my LST 465 we had a 3in./50 on our fan tail. It would make a bigger hole in the pirates.

Ys, but a whole gaggle of 40's makes a lot of holes and throw in a tracer or two just for effect. I think this would send a strong message.

Chris or Bob Pointer to this duty.. they'd have WAY too much fun....

We'd need more serious gunners... Sid and Rocky for example.
