    Forget that... $1000 for a homemade tuna spear gun made out of a pressure washer wand? I'd say that has to be a joke, but it really does appear to be a valid CL entry. Including the cheap foam case, my mind is only able to tally up about $100 worth of parts and a few hours out in the garage to build one. But definately not something to use on a halibut at boat side. I can't imagine that firing off a compressed air spear gun out of the water is going to be very healthy for those nearby.

    WE had one of those with a lazar scope on it back in the 1980's. It was deadly. A cable connects the metal shaft to the dart. The Lazar doesn't refract in water, so if you paint a tuna or swordfish with the lazar, the fish is dead. Killed many a swordfish, tuna and mako shark with just such a device. Ours was mounted on a mini 14 stock. Halibut however are really not that hard to kill and there would no need for that or a harpoon, in my opinion.
