Repelling boarders

Finally we see what a few guys with AR rifles can do when pirates try to board their vessel. It's a frickin' turkey shoot.




They even gave the pirates the courtesy of warning shots and they still tried to take the ship. Just after the 2 minute mark you can hear incoming rounds from other pirates.

Yaknow, the shipping companies could make extra coins if they chartered "pirate hunts." I'm sure some shooters would be quite happy to travel on board with the possibility of bagging some pirate.

I bet they would pay to go on a pirate hunting safari. Hmmmmm. . . the untapped market in maritime hunting trips sounds like I need to invest in a used cargo ship.

LOL, you're NOT the first one with that idea... Just sayin... :-)

Hard to see what is going on in that video, but I'm glad the crew was allowed to be armed.

Just have to watch out for the RPG's.
Aside from that, how could those little skiffs hope to take on a ship that size with an armed crew?

what kind of ship was that? those guys were pretty well kitted out for a cargo vessel. Nice to see that a few well armed people kept the ship safe.
