According to the Associated Press, a Juneau man defended his boat from an intruder before dawn Thursday with a shotgun and little else.
Russell Peterson grabbed his shotgun, sprang out of bed and marched the intruder off the vessel - all while in the nude. Peterson says he saw a man in a black coat standing in his bedroom doorway aboard his boat docked in Aurora Harbor. Peterson says he used his sawed-off shotgun to march the man off his ship.
Peterson then called 911. After explaining the situation, Peterson told the dispatcher he needed to get off the phone so he could get his pants on.
Police say 27-year-old Clay Calabrese was jailed at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center on a charge of criminal trespass. Peterson says Calabrese lives on another boat at Aurora.
Spent many a night in a tent and sleeping bag in single-digit temperatures. That's the only way to do it.
Crawl in there with all your gear on, and you'll never warm up.
seems to me that you could significcently shorten the form factor of a shotgun by both shortening the barrell and casting as a bullpup.
If the chamber was in the stock to an exent, you could get a few less inches out of the overall length.
Hey, it's cold in Juneau.
Oh yeah. Worked for me.
I always try to fight naked.
Good thing he had a shotgun, because his short arm probably vanished the second it felt that 11 Nov, Alaskan air.
FReeper?? I guess I missed that part of the story.
Um, none of you guys are going to visit me in the middle of the night to make "friends", right?
Especially those with "weak" bladders...
Why would he be sleeping in the buck on a boat in November in Alaska. Is it that warm on boats?
I don't even want to go "there." I'm sure there are others who did. I'm scared to look. LOL That said, I'm sure glad that this guy had a shotgun to protect himself. ;o)
"He said he later found two cigarette butts and a puddle of urine on the deck"
How weirdo is this? A normal person would go over the side, off the dock or something. Very creepy.
Only if you want to sell them. You can saw off your own shotguns all day long if you want. Only to 18" of course and as long as the overall length remains greater than 26".
A bullpup has the chamber in the reiver, not the stock. You'd still be limited to the 26" overall length. Still it's been done for semi-auto shotguns, not much point with any break action, since they already are awfully short when the barrell is cut to 18". In fact most folks who run afoul of the 26" rule, with a "long enough" barrel, do so with break action single or double barrel, since on a pump or semi-auto the reciever adds much of the required extra 8" all by itself.
Although I have seen pumps designed for the "shorty" 12 gauge shells that are much shorter in the action than a standard model designed for 2 3/4' shells.
...this ones for killing and this one's for fun.
It was a 65 footer. That's a small house on the water.
so we cant use the "is that a _____ in your pocket or are you glad to see me"
Male, Naked outside, in November, in Alaska..
It would be hard to tell a male in that condition, you know, the shrinking phenomemon...
Shrinkage? what about Inversion!
