    Re: flying "jib" with sliding gunter

    So, sort of a jib topsail but led aloft to the gaff peak instead of the masthead? Why not opt for taller mast, or a light top mast, and lead the flying jib halyard to that peak instead of the gaff...

    Re: I think I'll get a concealed carry permit

    A .38/.357 is more concealable, less expensive to shoot, and perfectly adequate for even the most tweaked out meth marauders. But that .44 will never leave you undergunned.
