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.
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.
