Re: Have you speared another spearo?

Got my frist speargun in 1955; never have i come close to spearing another diver.

However, there was a guy, from Oregon i believe, at the Nationals' in ~1968 who reputedly shot TWO team mates, different guys, a year apart. Neither guy would dive with him again, DUH!!! He wasn't at the Nationals in 1970; either he didn't qualify or couldn't find anyone to dive with him.

Shunning works. imho after one spears another; time to retire the speargun and get a camera.

i wonder how the rates of speros & firearms accidents compare. We have lots fewer people speared; But there are Lots more firearms. Also, i wonder the rates of freediving vs bubbler spearings.
