This is pretty nifty:

And then he makes these:

Anyways, I figure both the artists and gun enthusiasts here will both appreciate it. :)

That can't possibly be good for the gun. I'll be keeping mine out of the pool...but thanks for sharing.

Probably. But if I understand correctly, it's probably much more a job for an AK-47. :D

This is pretty nifty:

  He must load his own rounds with reduced powder, otherwise the overpressure from the water in the barrel would cause the barrel to explode.  Like with my AR15 and other guns all have a warning to completely wipe away gun oil from the chamber and barrel to prevent overpressure resulting in explosions.

The shorter barrel on a pistol would mitigate that some...but yeah, I'd be inclined to at least hope he would go that route. Otherwise with the repeated excessive stress placed on the chamber failure is definitely an option.

Yup. I have a little list. They won't be missed.  :Thmbsup: ;)

Addendum:

Just thinking out loud...once you're done with the 'marketing' video - why bother using a real gun at all? Just suspend the cartridge most of the way into the water and electrically fire it. Or fire it through just a rifled barrel the same way if it needs spin to get the proper effect. The barrel is already flooded using a real gun anyway. Rig up a floating block of some sort, load up ten shells at a time, and voila!...you have an assembly line going. :huh:

  A cartridge fired outside of a barrel results in the casing exploding like a grenade, and the bullet just falls straight down.  Throw a bullet in a fire and the casing is what's going to get you, not the bullet....
