It's good to know my Glock can withstand that although I have no plans to treat it like that haha.

Gives me an idea for a question:

The incompressibility of fluids (specifically, blood) is what makes hollow-point ammo expand and lead to it's effectiveness in creating larger wound channels (versus full metal jacket ammo).

Water, being a fluid, is incompressible.

So.....if you fire a gun (any gun) with a hollow-point round, underwater, will the bullet begin to expand within the barrel? :confused:

Ya thankfully this is my buddy and his gun.. and afterwards he didn't even clean it! He said "Dude its a glock" laughed and threw it back in his gun bag! Made me cringe! Weeks later he finally cleaned it I think haha but ya it is nice to see what they can take:)

Also happysniper1 that's a good point. I am curious about what it would do with a hollow point now too

I wonder if anyone can verify this (from another, non-Glock, forum):

Glock 17s will fire underwater with a change of the spring cups. Other models have been fired underwater as well, but Glock states that only the model 17 is okay.
???

Found this also.

Before reading (and complaining!), note carefully that the people doing this test fired stock Glocks against tricked out M1911s. And the dry-land firing of the Glock criticized in the article is something I have never heard of before....do not know if (to make their product look better) the Glocks had all-factory parts (no aftermarket magazines) or even if the Glocks were cleaned before the test.

Makes no mention of barrel stoppages with the HP ammo fired underwater. Still, I wonder....

@Knuck:

Nice video. I have this video, too. Nice explanation of difference between hollow-point and jacketted ammo, but does not address ballistics underwater.

Still, it's a nice video :)

Your question gave me an idea. I wonder if there is a way to encapsulate a fluid in the hollow point of a bullet to increase reliability of expansion...

Saw a video one time, I think it was on YouTube. Guy was underwater in pool and shot his Glock. Gun fired, looked cool, but the bullet completely lost all of it's energy in about 4 feet and fell to the bottom of the pool.

The marine spring cups will fit any Glock model, and should work in any model too. I understand that it is no small feat to get them from Glock though, and as was previously posted the bullet is still only going to go a couple of feet regardless.
I've never understood the desire to do so much underwater shooting.
