My brother just asked me what would happen to a fish if one was to shoot it with a 10mm (G20 for me). I could not give him an answer to that. So I thought I would drop this line and see what I could catch. :whistling:

Doesn't really sound ethical to me. Kinda ****ed up. I think we all know what would happen if you use the mighty 10MM.

Yeah this is true, I tried to explain the ethics part but, to him, maiming **** is fun this is why he is not allowed near my guns.

For a shark getting near me while I was in the water I could see shooting the shark, but that's about it. Glock does have a kit for firing under water.

The maritime spring cups are hardly a "kit"... just a modified spring cup to prevent hydraulic striker spring lock... and its for the 9mm models only AFAIK. Also, I wouldn't be caught DEAD underwater around a 9mm OR a 10mm firing underwater. To each his own, I guess. hehe

For sharks they make what is called a BANG STICK, they come in different calibers. I don't think they have one in 10mm...but it would work if chambered for it.

Now many moons ago...we use to take a 22lr and light to shine for fish, we'd slip the barrel under the water and ease it up to the fish and fire, it would stun small fish like bass but larger fish like sheep head, flounder, redfish and others black drum we'd put the barrel almost on their head...blup! and scoop! Those were the days!:fishing:

if you shot a fish with a 10mm it would cause a malestrom and dredge up all the ship wrecks of yore....

I would not recommend firing a 10MM near a body of water, the concussion would cause a tsumani.

If your local laws allow it, I could see trying to shoot a big catfish or alligator gar that's not even 6 inches under the surface(while you're above the water), but even then you'd likely just be maiming it.

Whatever you do, don't fire a gun under water while any body part with vital organs is also in the water. The shockwave could tear your organs.

I shot a 10mm once at a Grey whale and this is the result:

No, if you wanna piss of PETA. Go to their HQ in a cow suit and eat a hamburger in front of the window. They don't like that.:rofl:

Most "Bang Sticks" are made in .44 Magnum. A good friend did the prototype work for Voit some 40 or so years ago. Prior to that, a 12 ga. slug was often used. But due to the higher operating pressures of the .44, it works better.
Since they are a "contact" weapon, the pressure of the ctg. & the gas generated actually do more damage than does the projectile. The projectile merely provides an opening for the gas to enter, althou it does do some damage.
This is why another version uses a CO2 ctg. like an airgun & a hollow needle. Blows a shark up like a beachball & destroys it's internal balance along with the organ damage.

Maybe the concussion would close it up? :tongueout:

Mythbuster's just did a show on shooting fish in a barrel I only caught the last couple of seconds so do not know what guns they were using but they blew the fish up pretty good...

I am missing this ethics thing on shooting a fish with a firearms do you catch them with a hook and drag them around in the water until you either release them or club them over the head or like me I have over the years shot hundreds of carp with a bow and arrow whats the difference?

I say go have fun just remember to aim for the refraction of the water or you'll miss... :cool:

Carp with bow was a family tradition on Father's Day for my dad & I until he retired to FL. Several times we had so many in the boat that we were in danger of swamping the Jon-Boat !
But they didn't die in vain, they went thru the compost grinder & my mom had the BEST roses in the 'hood !

They also did another show about shooting in the water and learned it is only lethal about 2 feet, even the 50 BMG exploded when it hit water.

But seriously don't shoot lead in a water supply. :upeyes: I am no tree hugger, but I am not stupid either.

That must have been one helluva shot, you fired in the ocean and ended up in the desert. I have a new found respect for the 10mm.

Actually that's what the ocean's floor looked like after all water had been either removed by the shock wave or evaporated by extremely high temperatures, nanoseconds before the explosion. The shooter only survived because he was Chuck Norris.

yeah its not as cool as it sounded nor is it appropriate. 10mm ammo is way to expensive to waste on fish.

The 10mm would definitely "part the water" and the fish would die from that.

Growing up in the Florida Panhandle, Panama City, we would just use a gig with a very bright underwater light at night. It is a much drier way to fish! :wow:

I always wanted to spear fish though.:supergrin:
