Do You Need a Bang Stick?



Somebody was asking about weaponry to stock a fictional cave near an atoll, and my old scuba-diving days came back. Spearguns are pretty nasty items out of water, especially the pneumatic ones that you load like a kid's rubber suction-tipped dart pistol.

But probably a lot of folks don't know about the bang-stick, designed for sharks and gators, but pretty interesting as an assassination tool out of the water, too ...

Bang!

Want to buy one?

But, wait! This model, for gators, because it is permanently welded onto a pole more than four feet long is not, as I read the statute, even considered a firearm by the BATF.

Hiking staff, anyone ... ?

Tom Clancy has his John Clark character use one to kill a drug dealer in 'Without Remorse'.
