Man with a Net - S3-E7

Corrected entry: In this episode, Gilligan steals Beesley's flare gun and the castaways convince him to shoot it so they can be rescued, but it fails because the flares were taken out by Beesley. This episode indicates the castaways didn't have a flare gun of their own, yet in another episode (with the Mr. Howell impostor), the Professor gave Mr. Howell a working flare gun to use if he needed it. Why was This flare gun never used to be rescued?

Correction: In Season 1: Episode 3 "Voodoo Something to Me", the Skipper got everyone up each night to fire off a flare. Towards the end, Gilligan got the flare gun away from the chimp that had stolen it, and accidentally fired it into the supply hut where the rest of the flares were. This in turn set off all the flares. If one or two were spared, they'd be saved for a time there would be a sure chance of being seen.
