It first must be shot in New Zealand, searched after for hours, digged out from a sand pit, and only then it will become a paperweight... or a nice souvenir :lol:

Or the girls from America's Next Top Model, they stayed at a place about 5min drive from me :D

I'm still thinking of ways to track the projectile, perhaps I'll query another forum as well.

I was thinking about that and have come up with an idea, a small radio transmitter would be placed in the projectile and set to a known frequency. Then you would get a handheld radio and attach a pipe wrapped in aluminum foil to the end of the antenna with the open end pointing away from you and set the radio to that frequency and just follow the direction of the noise.

But what would said GPS chip do? It's not that simple... ;)

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

A cheaper GPS option was suggested in the long range thread, still a bit bulky and rtisky to be fired though.

The tracking options are very limited due to size and weight constrictions. A extra set of eye's and a metal detector may be in need. Paint it bright orange...
