Click to watch the original Pistols Underwater Video. The results of this experiment make me question how an why a blowback system works underwater vs. air.

How does a gas operated rifle work when filled with water?
I’ve already shot the second video. It’s awesome. I recommend subscribing. I put more brainpower into it the second time so you won’t be disapointed.

Like the music? Download it here:

The camera I used is the Phantom Miro 320S

I thought the footage of the underwater stuff was really good. I lowered the resolution a bit. It’s capable of full 1080p.

Feel free to ask me any questions in the comments. I bought the aquarium at a fireworks stand, so I couldn’t really get the specks on the glass before I bought it. That’s the way these things go I guess.

Tweet ideas to me @SmarterEveryDay

Instead of saving for my kids’ college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

If you REALLY liked it, feel free to pitch a few dollars towards their college fund by clicking here:

Warm Regards,
