Glock 21 buried 2 years. Works fine.

Two years after burying his Glock 21, this guy digs it up, washes it off with water and, without any lube, fires 500 rounds of .45 ACP through it. Not bad.

    Carl, I wanted to add as long as the muzzle didn't sweep anybody, he isn't breaking one of the four firearm safety rules.

    Most people that does destructive tests own more then one brand of firearms. In fact I wouldn't be surprise they own a large number of firearms in their collection.
