Target Range Under Water (Dec, 1938)
Target Range Under Water
UNDERWATER target practice with rubber-band guns is a novel sport recently introduced in Florida. Donning water goggles, contestants dive below the surface with bamboo guns fitted at one end with heavy elastic bands that fire steel-tipped spears about three and a half feet long. After each shot, the contestant bobs up to the surface for a breath of air before returning to the underwater range. Remarkable accuracy is obtained with the curious spear guns, it is said.
