American Shooting Journal: Underwater Guns

    If you previously watched on how water can deflect bullets in the D-Day post last week, one should know that merely a few feet of water is enough to slow a conventional bullet down from lethal to an annoying bump. As such, its an interesting question on how divers can engage in projectile-based combat.

    Both the Americans and Russians have been working on underwater guns for some time, having gone through multiple iterations. In the first of a series of articles focusing on these contraptions, American Shooting Journal looks at the latest handguns, including the H&K P11 (you did know that H&K made an electrically fired underwater handgun, right?)PHOTO-3-Heckler-and-Koch-P11-Underwater-Pistol-1024x433
