Ever wonder what it looks like when you fire a gun underwater? Firearm enthusiast Andrew Tuohy of VuurwapenBlog recently decided to find out. Taking his .40 Glock 22 into his swimming pool, he captured some high speed videos of himself firing a round using an ordinary Pentax Optio WG-2 waterproof compact camera (which has a 120fps movie recording mode). The photograph above is a still taken from one of the videos.

Water really knocks the crap out of the muzzle velocity.

The video shows the bullet traveling so slow you can't believe it. I think it is all in real time.

The bullet really spins as it exits the chamber — I didn’t know that before.

I know people that carry a glock while diving for sharks. Apparently it shoots fine but it only works for one shot because of the water.

There’s a ring or something you can swap out which will allow multiple shots.

I hope his head was out of the water, so his eardrums didn’t blow-out.

Mythbusters did an episode on this showing that movie scenes of shooting into the water and killing people who were submerged was just about impossible.

Looks like the pistol has a left hand twist. I don’t think that’s common.

The video as you scroll down on the website at the link was really interesting. Thanks for posting this.

Thought the fish tank video at the bottom of the link was very cool comparing a revolver with Glock.

I remember. Even with a 50 Cal sniper rifle any thing more than a foot or two underwater would likely be unharmed by the projectile.

Other than the obvious - like a computer program that hunts down and kills spammers - probably the one thing that would drastically improve my Quality of Internet Browsing would be a Firefox add-on that automatically removed the music from any video uploaded to YouTube or Facebook and etc.

Glock 22s have right hand polygonal twist.

Amen! I'm so sick of videos that are about a sound- be it a gun, or airplane or whatever, that have music over the top of the sounds that frickin video's all about!

Bang sticks are better. They are a 3 to 4 foot stick with a shotgun shell or .357 cal shell at the end. You punch the shark with it and it goes off. Gives you a little more distance from the shark.

Yes...exactly that.

You find a “MUST SEE A-10 BOMBING RUN IN IRAQ!!!!!!!!!” video and start watching it only to find some 13 year-old wanna-be-movie-producer dumbass has dubbed “Screaming Babies, Sounds of Anarchy 666!” over it, making the whole damn thing unwatchable.

Why did the title come out that way? The title at the source didn't have all
of the letters capitalized. And what's with the "->" after every word?
