It strikes me that if you were to "un-conceal" your firearm and wave it towards any oncoming boats that it would serve as a nice deterrent!
In Tobermory, we are diving in a National Park. Shore divers must fly the red and white dive flag by law. Boats can fly that or the Alpha flag by day. At night, charter boats (generally steel tugs) do use the red/white/red lights. I don't dive much anymore at night have discovered the joys of drinking heavily after 6:00, but when I do (dive at night), I just light up my flag with an anchor light... There's never more than one boat out anyway, so it's not a huge issue...
