POTD: Cooling Down a Glock in the Stream

    The Picture Of Today is a Glock 17 taking a refreshing swim, to keep it cool.

    Haven’t we all been there? Shooting a firearm so hot you get burn marks if you touch it? Still we want to keep on shooting.

    The pistol is a Glock 17, Generation 4. It has the Aimpoint ACRO (not sure if the P1 or the C1 model) as well as a Surefire X300 weapon light mounted.

    For an Aimpoint to take a swim is a bit unusual, but if you read the specifications it should be up for it.

    ‘The pistol was shot until it was too hot, so I gave it a swim in a nearby stream.

    I have full confidence that the pistol and the Aimpont sight survives this treatment

    The slide is stock and the barrel is brand new, hence the color differences

    To be honest, I think my Glock is the only firearm I have that I would dare to submerge like this. What about you?

    Which firearms of yours would you dare to submerge (note: not talking about any boating accidents here)?
