Default I FINALLY DID IT

Well I have lived here for 5 years now (although I spend way more time in Iraq) and fish as much as anyone, but I just kept readin about clay-doh and all his undersea adventures and I just couldn't take it anymore.....sooo I just went over to Bos'n house(fellow PFF) and bought all his dive gear. I can't wait to get wet. I was certified in high school which was 15 yrs ago but I only did my cert dive, never anything else, so I am going to go down to MBT and take a recert class and a nitrox class as soon as I can! I now have a TON of dive gear but I am missing one thing a spear gun so if anyone has a speargun they would like to get rid of please let me know. I just spent all my extra cash so it would have to be a trade but I have ALOT of gear that I would be willing to trade as well as some rod and reels or a bass guitar and amp or ??? Anyway I can't wait to meet some of you guys and actually see all the spots I regurally fish:letsdrink

I have a Mares phneumatic that is collecting dust. You are welcome to take it and make a trade offer. It is still functional, but does need some cleaning since it hasn't been used in a while. It may need a tip. I will dig it out tomorrow and post a pic.

Instead of using rubber bands, it uses an air charged cylinder. it looks like a pistol with an 18" spear. I have used it about 10 times and have never recharged it. I have shot several AJs in the 20 - 30 lb range. Also snapper and trigger. It is an older model to the one at this address.

Are you Spectre or U-Boat?

Were you able to check out the web site on the gun? Mine is an older model of that one but no holster. I usually just snap hook it on when not in use. Let me know if you are interested, and we will work it out. I hate to see it just laying around when it could be killing something. Also if you would like to try it on a couple of dives, you are welcome.



PM sent.

Sweet job flyboy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:toast

Yer gonna love it man!!! Look foward to you getting out with all of us soon!!

By the way, that wasnt a nemo shot on that cuda, well, it was, shot him straight thru the gill plate, but it took brandy sinkin another shaft in him, then after about 3 minutes of him trying to eat everybody in the water with BOTH our shafts, fishinfl finally dealt the death blow with a 44 magnum powerhead!

YOur gonna lose all focus on life once you shoot your first fish...everything else just doesnt seem to be quite as important.:doh
