Instructions for correctly loading a roller speargun
A photographed guide for correct loading – recommended for average long rifles, since loading is easier with short rifles, although the principles are the same.
Before we begin, here are four things you should never do:
Do not load the gun out of the water!
Do not aim the loaded gun at people!
You have to load the gun when the safety is on!
Consider a loaded and locked, as if it is not with the safety on!
Load spearfishing speargun
Sit comfortably in the water and find a good grip on the handle of the rifle with your left hand as you prepare to load.
With your right hand, grasp the right rubber band as you push with your left hand.
Keep your right hand straight and push the butt of the rifle against your chest with your left hand.
When the rifle handle is firmly pressed against your chest, release it and use the left hand now available to grasp the left rubber band.
With both hands, pull the rubber bands back toward the arrow slot, and use the chest as a counter force.
Insert the wishbone into the slot and the rifle is ready to fire.
