Underwater Glock Fishing For Lionfish. You’ve Got To See This!

Take that lionfish!!!

I thought I had seen some creative ways to kill the invasive lionfish, but this video trumped it all.

Our friend Courtland Hunt (his son is the 4-year old fishing teacher that went viral in this video) teamed up with Airborne Arms to see if they could turn a Glock 9mm handgun into a lionfish killing machine in 100 feet of water.

Did it work?

Let’s just say our friend Alex Fogg (the Lionfish Killer) would be proud…

Here is a pic of Courtland about to take down a lionfish with his 9mm.

Not sure the cost of the ammo (they used lead-free, non-toxic ammo if any of you were worried about them pumping lead all over the ocean floor) is cost effective for most people compared to a speargun or sling, but pretty darn awesome footage!

Who would have thought a 9mm could shoot that well 100 feet underwater.

Pretty amazing.

Check out the video below!

To hear more about why Courtland wanted to try a handgun to shoot lionfish, check out his brief interview with our friends over at Outdoors360 here.

This is his answer as to why:

“People ask me “why?” and I say honestly, “I’m fascinated by guns, but tired of seeing videos on ‘how many watermelons, CD’s, or marshmallows can a bullet travel through. Those things have no applications for me, however, I can now tell you that if a shark (or watermelon) were to attack me at almost any depth that a Glock 9mm would surely protect me.”

Enjoy and do NOT try this at home folks.

Good job firing a glock underwater and making a video. Yay. Been common knowledge for years that they will indeed shoot underwater. The parts have been available to the public for years to do the modification which is simple. As a solution to killing lionfish…. for the same amount of money as buying a glock you can buy 6 spearguns, invite your friends along and kill 6 times as many. I forget….. what exactly does this accomplish?

Don’t think it’s about the money. I spend a bunch to kill paper at the range all the time. Just looks like fun. Bonus, you can’t eat the paper targets.

That gun will rot faster than farting after having burritos for dinner
