Unfortunately, this video doesn’t contain the money shot. But we can assume that the lack of reports on Mr. Sampson’s untimely demise indicates that the Canadian-born Australian (how anti-gun rights is that?) is alive and well. What do you expect from a guy who did a solo ascent on Everest? As for underwater ballistics . . .
I’d like to point out that there are plenty of underwater guns. Guns that fire flechettes rather than bullets. And then there’s this stuff [via Wikipedia.org]:
The Multi-Environment Ammunition (MEA) series supercavitating rifle ammunition, developed and marketed by DSG [Norway’s Defence & Security Group] is anticipated to be useful for certain special operations, including underwater warfare . . .
The ballistic characteristics of MEA series ammunition allows the user to fire at an underwater target from above the water, or an above-the-water target from underwater, or from underwater at a target which is also underwater.
This ammunition allows the user to fire from above the surface into the water at a very low angle of incidence—in some cases as low as two degrees—without ricochet. After entering the water, the bullet will continue its original trajectory. The user when aiming the gun needs to compensate for the refractive index of the water (roughly 1.333 for fresh water at 20 °C).
MEA series supercavitating ammunition is currently available in the following calibers:
5.56×45mm NATO (accurate range of 15 meters underwater)
7.62×51mm NATO (accurate range of 25 meters underwater)
12.7x99mm NATO (.50 BMG, accurate range of 60 meters underwater)
Super Sniper Tactical
FWIW Ursula was killed above water by the prow of a ship. Here’s hoping the sequel will show up on IMFDB.
Or someone remakes Thunderball with cooler guns.
