If they'd started doing this at the outset of the problem there'd be no problem.

#3 Can't really tell what's going on. Someone with more experience want to interpret the events of this video?
Gromky, small craft with pirates approaches vessel from the starboard side, Security personnel open fire, small craft impacts hull of larger vessel, (probably because driver is dead) security continues to fire at pirates in the water.
The second engagement, pirates seemed to veer away as they started taking fire. Couldn't really tell because the production values were poor. :-)
Some denizens of the deep got to eat well!
If they would start a TV reality show with this sort of fare, I'd start watching TV again.

#4 a Somali safari on the seas. I'd pay for a week or two. No limit, no catch-and-release

You have to be kidding. Do you think this was tv show or movie?

Are you as stupid as that statement makes you appear? It was high snark, passed right over your head.

#8 Love the shooting rest pads and canopy and optics, nice touch. Forgot the beer cooler unless a good fridge on the bridge.

#10 How come they aren't all dead? A bolt action rifle and head explosions in the scope!

#11 The only critique I have here is, next time, skip the warning shots.
