Okay, enough of this BS from the Somali pirates. Who wants to sign up for my para-military pirate hunting crew?
I'm also on the market for an old PT boat, anybody got one laying around?

I've been thinking GE mini-gun or Dillon Aero, but where do we get ALL the ammo? It'd nip that problem in the bud . We might need more than one PT boat, there operating over 1.1million square miles.There used to be a dozen or more PT boats in Portsmouth, Va..
Maybe a couple dillons on a VX-40, Randy can drive, we'll man the guns.

How about a 40' Navy attack cat? It has been on E-Bay repeatedly.

Good news Trey, the Marines are still looking for "A Few Good Men" so get on down to your local recruiter's office and tell him you want to "grease some skinny's!" Hoo Ahh!

And while waiting for your training dates, pick up a copy of Mark Bowden's Blackhawk Down.

And I've got to go with Karl on this one, don't bring a knife to a gun fight.

I think Blackwater is getting in on this game too.

I hate to bring up the irony, but before Somalia was "liberated from their radical religious governance" (Islamic Courts Union in '06), Sharia law banned piracy as being against the Koran. There was VERY little piracy in the region during that time period...

ROFLMAO Recommended movies: "Black Hawk Down", "We were soldiers once. . .and young", and two of my VERY favorites "Platoon" and "Full metal jacket".

FWIW- 11E20, RA14970244 (if you gotta ask, don't bother).

2)scuba gear
3)a few blocks of C4
4)and a cooler full of ice and liquor for when the show starts.

I think you should ask the gov't for a gun boat. I think I'd ask for the 62 and settle for the 48.

My son is in the Navy and being deployed to this area. Your enthusiasm reminded me of him. He started bugging them at the end of last year, taking the required classes and getting the security clearances so he was accepted and assigned to one of the attack boats. He is a helicopter mechanic (not sure what MOS that is). He is leaving sometime late summer or early fall to go and fight the pirates. His mother is scared for him but we are both proud as could be.

I think this is the tool they used to liberate the captain from the clutches of the pirates:

My guess would be something chambering a .308 caliber round ... I do believe your picture is of a Barret .50 caliber and that WILL stop a truck ... or light armoured vehicles.

Now what Trey needs for his "fast attack" boat is "Ma Duece" .... maybe a pair of twin "Ma Dueces" .... its hard to beat Mr John Browning's .50 caliber Machine Gun, +70 years of military service, and a range of +3000yds .....

.... no-one argues with "Ma"

Sadly, Pete, with the shabby state of veteran's benefits, it means a lot less than it once did....
