You can be stable today, but not so tomorrow. There's a lot of future. It's best you start accounting for it now.
Being "boarded" isn't an excuse to require firearms. Gaining proximity required to initate a docking alignment without our express intent should be difficult. Should this magically occur then the act of pressurising the airlock can be mitigated by venting their atmosphere directly into space, forcing them to abort the attempt or suffocate. It's kind to do this before they enter the airlock but we could wait until after. Opening the airlock without the pressure level will likely detach their ship and most likely wreck it. Assuming none of this occurs, and they don't get the bends due to the air mix difference, then as they cross the threshold they are concentrated and easily dealt with, compressed in such a fashion execution is rediculously simple but as something moves past the airlock it can get cable tied. A few dozen people can realistically defend against thousands, and realistically take no injuries in the process.
All without a single firearm, and expecting the "enemy" to have them.
