Ahoy there Shippers, Sitting in a nice warm office drinking a brew but deep inside dreaming of the Oggin, Monkeys fists and Rollin' 'Iches... Haha.. Right me-hearties what d'ye reckon to this. You're on upper deck as QM or B-mate. You're well armed with SA80 A2, Baton and 32 JSP Cards. 3 fat Portsmouth fans start walking up the Gangway. You issue the firm but friendly stop there guys. They continue to walk up and one shouts where's Big Billy he owes me a fiver! You reply with a weapon cock, a pipe for the RF (Response Force) and 'ROYAL NAVY STOP OR I'LL SHOOT' There's no way I'm going to take on 3 fat 8a5tards with 1 telescopic Baton! They reply with F off mate we're coming on board. Me and my oppo shout 2 more warnings and they are now 3 metres away from me. They do not look armed but i feel threatened. There's still no sign of the RF what should i do? Shoot one or more of them? Let them on board? Try go talk them down even though I've issued 3 warning or Should i have drawn my baton in the first place and let my oppo cock and issue warnings? Tough one this. If you reply to me please mention if you've done a SPO course, Cheers. Remember minimum force required but maximum effort to achieve your aim. My aim is to stop them getting on board the Ship. If it helps with your answer I'm over 6ft and I'm about 14 stone.
