I am planning a circumnavigation soon that will obviously take in many different country's. I am not a gun enthusiast and at this moment in time dont have a licence for one. However having heard of some of the horror stories that has become some sailors, I would like to have some sort of protection.
Obviously my first step would be to get a licence, but on what grounds would I apply for one?
And also are there countries that It would be illegal to carry such a weapon.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
