Could add a whole new dimension to clay pigeon shooting.  'Clays' that shoot back

It may be bonkers but the flight transitions and dynamics were awesome and the camera work impressive given the difficulties

On the other hand I've always wondered what would happen if you tried to fire a shotgun under water.....  rubschin:

I seem to remember Mythbusters did that years ago with fairly unimpressive results...

Also The SlowMo guys have filmed different weapons fired underwater...

EDIT: Actually I seem to remember it was The Backyard Scientist and The SlowMo Guys...

I guess a lot would depend on whether the barrels were full of water. If so wouldn’t it create a huge back pressure?
Well, whatever nevermind

Yarp. You can certainly blow up a shotgun by accidentally blocking the barrel(s) and a quick Youtube search shows dipping the end of the barrel in water isn't really something you want to do!

Not sure if I have miss-remembered or the outcome is different when the entire gun is underwater. I remember them shooting other weapons (pistols, AK47, etc.) underwater with no ill-effects...
