Thread: You never have a Mark 4 Spearfish Torpedo to hand when you need it...

  1. #1

    You never have a Mark 4 Spearfish Torpedo to hand when you need it...

    Pictures from an outing last week.

    Caveats - no intention of shooting ( I know - but better cleared up at the start ), just over our march, pictures were taken at distance with zoom so apologies for quality.

    Stalking quietly along, we ended up watching a stag - still apparently holding hinds, calmly walk by the Loch ( over our boundary, so not in pursuit ). For reasons best known to himself - it was a chilly day and I imagine the Loch was frigid - he chivvies the hinds into the Loch and they walk through it for several hundred yards - right beside a perfectly good ( and dry ) bank.

    I have some video - bit shaky - of a hind 'kneeing' its calf to hurry it up out of the water as they came out; so suspect the deer were fully aware of how cold the water was.

    Sat with client and just watched - along with a 'pythonesk' discussion as to whether the Spearfish Torpedo would be classed as 'designed to expand in a predictable manner'...

    Nope, it's varmint round designed to disintegrate not expand predictably.

    Obviously not perfect enough

    surely a javelin or sidewinder as theyre designed to expand near to the target .though i suspect the meat damage would border on mincemeat

    TB - you are just being silly now... whilst we've all had a Spearfish ( or for older members the Mk8 Tigerfish ) to hand from time to time; who on earth would be carrying a Sidewinder - its just plain wrong. Keep it real please.

    How far can you swim under water Andy?
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    Irrelevant question - whenever I'm in water stealth is impossible - the combined Norwegian and Japanese 'scientific' whaling fleet, Greenpeace and attendant press flotillas always give the game away...
