no---I always thought a gun would blow up under water. I guess its only rifles that you cant shoot underwater.

I wonder what kind of bullet they used. If it was a hollowpoint, did it expand as soon as it was out of the barrel and that's why there is a large air pocket right in front of the barrel.
