Re: How do you keep your gun from floating away?

Arm in bands isn't bad, because then you've already got the bands handled for reloading, but I personally prefer to add handle/butt weights to make the gun negative without shafts.

Not great for freediving, but I don't think you do that much.

Then again, you did complain about your gun being too heavy... I suggest 40 push-ups every morning
And here I thought all those 12 ounce curls would help!

It's never been a problem for my other guns when an extra shaft is on them, but if I launch both shafts then the gun goes positive. My new gun is something I don't want to lose. I can understand the tangly tether, but I'm wondering if I might be able to figure something out that would work - will have to test it.
