      This seems win win to me.


      Or package B, as a friend just called it, the "keeping it real package". Stash them in a container with some MREs and they stay in hiding until some pirates show up.

      It seems the government is currently saying, "While we're conducting this unspecified, unwarranted surveillance, we're totally thinking about how to not violate the 4th Amendment that we're currently violating. Because terrorism."

      If only you understood the dynamics for tucking the elbow, and how much it helps stabilize the stock.

      Then again, I used to get bitched at when I'd let my arm stick out just a little bit, so maybe I'm just taking it out on that guy.

      Every summer they would vacation in South America and sail their boat back to the states. Apparently there is an active pirate group in the area (who knew?). One year they were being followed by a boat, so the dad goes below and pulls out some kind of drum fed, automatic shotgun. He fires a few rounds in to the water ahead of the pursuing boat, and they veer off and head elsewhere. Or so I was told.

      Mother ****er was probably using USAS-12 with frag rounds. Way too over powered!!

      I've seen some private security contractors that just want a DD-214, and some level of fitness. Of course certain things like AB/AS qualified help, as well as some other training, but they don't seem to mind hiring people with just a DD-214.

      Watching that video was heartwarming experience.

      And I am finding the youtube comments hilarious. Particularly the skittles ones.

      Ironically I watched the Somali Pilot ordeal on the Military Channel a few minutes ago. Insanity that the three Navy Seals got off 3 simultaneous headshots from a carrier to a bobbing lifeboat.

      Anyways the whole time I was thinking that noone on the ship had a gun. In constant threat of hijacking and not one person has a gun on them. This ship does it right.

      I'm down. Regarding doing Maritime Security --- military contractors are like any other business, some good, some bad - some high speed, some low speed. Military experience would probably be enough for a gig like this.
