Firearm aficionado Andrew Tuohy gave it a go with a .40 Glock 22 in his own pool. The video above was shot with Pentax WG-2 on the "high speed" video setting. It's been slowed down to 30fps for an added bad ass factor. (Watch for the bullet and casing to slow down and sink to the bottom at the end.) He also tinkered around with another submerged weapon—check out a picture of the .45 Kimber 1911 going off below.
