    Shooting a gun underwater

    One video of a guy testing a Glock 22 in a pool and the other tests a revolver and SR40 in a homemade plexiglass container. He test fires into some trees which I hope contains a backstop.

    I watched some torture test videos of a guy sitting in a tractor tire, laid over, and filled with water, shooting various handguns at the sidewall of said tire, which was about three feet from the gun...and his satchel. Handguns are next to useless underwater, unless you fire damn near point blank, which is why I never understood Glock making such a big deal about their guns firing under such conditions...even though you usually end up having to manually work the slide to get the striker to reset. Pump action handgun...lethal at up to 12 inches. Didn't we move past that tech a few centuries ago?

    I know ... I'm going to get one .... I called my commie state senator who voted for PA13-3 (my states lovely, unconstitutional omnibus bill) and said I need her help to get a AR lower (a Colt AR lower) so I can finish the crossbow.

    Oddly enough, no response. I'll be at her office tomorrow ... and I will pitch a bbiitch!

    I have a recurve and compound bow ... but the AR version might be better for dead accuracy in comparison.

    I'm surprised they did not make this in a smaller more compact and portable version ... I maybe able to modify it to make it so.

    150 # draw ... accurate to 100-150 yds .... add a night vision scope (even a cheap 1st or 2nd gen) and you have an awesome system. A good one for preppers.

    Just brought a six point cross bow only shot it out to 40 yards.

    Place 3 shots into the same hole off a rest. I have rifles that won't do that.

    I need to shoot it at longer ranges for the fun of it.
