    I used to scuba dive as a teenager. I had speargun that propeled the spear with two large loops of surgical type tubing. One day I decided to shoot it in the back yard so I filled up a 5lb. coffee can with dirt and set it on the picnic table .
    The spear had about 15 feet of line attached to it and about two feet of shock absorbing tubing.

    I fired it and missed the can. I watched, unable to move, as the spear hit the end of the line and stretched out the shock tubing and flipped around and came wizzing by my head missing me by about two inches.
