Default Guns on the boat

Saw someones post with a rattlesnake swimming thru the water, and I have caught some HUGE alligator snapping turtles on trot lines in east river. So with all these varmits anyone carry a gun ? I thought about it, but I know that the salt water would play hell on any gun I take.

I was thinking about gettingsome kindofwater proofplasitic case to keep one in. That's the same reason I don't want to take one of mine on the boat, I'm afraidI'll get salt water on it.

I carry my 40 cal. every where I go. Salt will not hurt it if(the gun)it is well oiled and cleaned. As far as shooting a snake in the water it would depend on where I was and what was around me. A paddle to the head would work just as well.

Carry a gun on your boat for your protection..... Not to kill a snake or any other creature just for fun!!!:nonono

i gotta agree, why in the heck would you shoot a rattlesnake? a stick, paddle, gaff, even a slingshot! i gotta admit i carry wherever i go, but firearms are a bit of an overkill for such small stuff. on the gator comment; they usually tend to stay as far away from you as they can, unless you going for a swim where you shouldn't be. in wich case, having firepower never hurts. them bicuit eaters got some silly tendencies.

almost always have a pistol on the boat. never know when pirates will try to get us. but i agree a paddle is well more than enough.

If your worried about corrosion the popular Remington 870 12guage shotgun comes in a corrosion resitant finish specifically for use on the water. Called the Marine Magnum.
