Interesting Photo of the Day: Underwater Gunshot

Not many people get to experience what it looks like when a firearm is shot underneath water, and one enthusiast decided he had been deprived for too long. So Andrew Tuohy did what anyone with a Glock 22, a swimming pool, an underwater camera, and some courage would do–make a video of himself shooting the handgun underwater right in his own backyard.

I’m no firearms expert, but I can’t say that I would recommend anyone trying this themselves. Tuhoy’s Glock fired without fail, and the resulting video does look pretty cool, but Tuhoy says the force from firing the gun underwater made his chest feel as though it had been kicked in.

Tuhoy didn’t stop at the Glock 22 either, since that experiment went so well he also tried his luck with a  .45 Kimber 1911, photographing the event with his trusty Pentax Optio WG-2.
