    Where would I find maritime laws regarding firearms? What can I do inside 12 miles vs. outside? :dunno:

    I would imagine that once you're in international waters you can do whatever you want, but once you enter the territorial waters of another nation or state you must be in compliance with their laws.

    I was in a gun store last weekend and heard one of the salespeople tell that saw twice within the span of ten minutes. With feeling. I'm glad I wasn't looking at the guy - or the customer - when he was doing that routine ... I was having trouble keeping a straight face as it was.

    My question was more about whether I could blast off the back deck inside 12 miles or not. :o

    another of the sales guys was telling the same story as well. all in all, i'm not terribly impressed with bullet trap. BPS still has the best service, too bad they don't have the selection.

    most people don't keep their shotguns in condition 1. there is a lot of debate on the subject, feel the safety on most shottys are just trigger locks and don't protect at all against dropping. so storing in with the tube full, chamber empty is what would make the racking happen

    it is well know that ships traveling in the Caribbean will pickup "illegal" weapons for their travels when going to latin american countries, mad pirates yo.

    usually drop their shit into the bottom of the sea once they get close enough to US waters for coast guards to stop them
