Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door, goes the old saying. Use a Glock to hunt lionfish and you have the makings of a viral video.
First there were nets, then spears. Now lionfish hunters elsewhere are using guns and robots to kill their prey.

It’s been on Youtube less than a week and it already has more than a half million views.
The DOE said it’s not something they’d like to see on our islands.

Also, the chemicals from the gunpowder residue could be problematic in a sensitive marine environment.
It is illegal to posses a firearm in the Cayman Islands without a license.
