That's impossible.. If you would read Spearboard more you would know that all those brands are clearly incompatible --- such a gun would explode, the moment the epoxy was applied..

That's what I thought also. I gathered up all the pieces and basically told 'em that they should all be happy to be a part of the great adventure of Spearfishing and that I expected nothing less than perfect behavior out of all of them. The speech must have made an impact because all parties have performed beautifully with no problems between them. Success!

I didn't think you could fit that many parts on a gun...oh the mfgr list was spread out over a couple guns
I'm real curious what you guys came up with...ant sneak pics?

Are these prototypes or are they going on the raffle table...the guns have to have good karma!

Re: Announcing "The Blue Wild" -- Feb 23 and 24, 2013!!!

I have been helping Sheri a little bit with publicity of the Blue Wild in the local media. I informed a friend at the Palm Beach Post Newspaper and introduced him to Sheri last week.

If any of you have friends in any form of media, especially radio and TV, please reach out to them. This last week is critical for getting the word out to the general public.

Here is a story from today's Miami Herald newspaper that Sheri landed:

http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/02/1...ylink=misearch

Sheri did the interview with the writer Sue directly. I also called Sue about the Blue Wild and told her about our big win last week in front of the FWC commission which she covers in this week's column.

Nah, I don't think she will.

Hey, Dan MacMahon can go as long as he wants. I know a lot of people want to hear what you have to say, Dan.

Some hard core European freedivers told me recently that they watched you and Ricky on a Speargun Hunter DVD and all of them were flabbergasted at your shots and skill and speed. Beaucoup respect.

See ya soon!

They sure are on point. Never seen so many stone shots in one dive. Fish don't move to far from the shot place. Hats off to those dudes. See ya'll at the expo guys.
