    My brother just asked me what would happen to a fish if one was to shoot it with a 10mm (G20 for me). I could not give him an answer to that. So I thought I would drop this line and see what I could catch. :whistling:

    Doesn't really sound ethical to me. Kinda ****ed up. I think we all know what would happen if you use the mighty 10MM.

    Yeah this is true, I tried to explain the ethics part but, to him, maiming **** is fun this is why he is not allowed near my guns.

    For a shark getting near me while I was in the water I could see shooting the shark, but that's about it. Glock does have a kit for firing under water.

    The maritime spring cups are hardly a "kit"... just a modified spring cup to prevent hydraulic striker spring lock... and its for the 9mm models only AFAIK. Also, I wouldn't be caught DEAD underwater around a 9mm OR a 10mm firing underwater. To each his own, I guess. hehe

    For sharks they make what is called a BANG STICK, they come in different calibers. I don't think they have one in 10mm...but it would work if chambered for it.

    Now many moons ago...we use to take a 22lr and light to shine for fish, we'd slip the barrel under the water and ease it up to the fish and fire, it would stun small fish like bass but larger fish like sheep head, flounder, redfish and others black drum we'd put the barrel almost on their head...blup! and scoop! Those were the days!:fishing:

    if you shot a fish with a 10mm it would cause a malestrom and dredge up all the ship wrecks of yore....

    I would not recommend firing a 10MM near a body of water, the concussion would cause a tsumani.

    If your local laws allow it, I could see trying to shoot a big catfish or alligator gar that's not even 6 inches under the surface(while you're above the water), but even then you'd likely just be maiming it.

    Whatever you do, don't fire a gun under water while any body part with vital organs is also in the water. The shockwave could tear your organs.

    Most "Bang Sticks" are made in .44 Magnum. A good friend did the prototype work for Voit some 40 or so years ago. Prior to that, a 12 ga. slug was often used. But due to the higher operating pressures of the .44, it works better.
    Since they are a "contact" weapon, the pressure of the ctg. & the gas generated actually do more damage than does the projectile. The projectile merely provides an opening for the gas to enter, althou it does do some damage.
    This is why another version uses a CO2 ctg. like an airgun & a hollow needle. Blows a shark up like a beachball & destroys it's internal balance along with the organ damage.
