Watch: Glock Fishing for Lionfish

This is cool. But turn off the sound before you play the video.

Using a pistol to slay fish is pretty awesome. And slaying lionfish–an edible invasive species that multiplies quickly, devours native fish, and has few if any natural predators–is always a great idea.

This video demonstrates the effectiveness of using a handgun with an adapter to kill these fish, which are then gathered up, taken home, and eaten.

Lead-free ammo is used, and the hunters/fishermen lure the fish away from reefs so their bullets don’t damage the coral.

Very nice.
