This looks nothing like what it looks like when James Bond does it.

McGovern1981: Nah, think about it, what would it be in the air that would make the barrel explode? I mean, the barrel is designed to withstand huge gas pressures, and if it doesn`t go when the much denser water gets expelled, why would an air pocket matter?

MMMmmmm not really think if there`s any air trapped in the barrel it will explode.

Myth Busters did a special on teh myth of firing a gun underwater...the exploding barrel myth is just that...a myth.

Firing a gun underwater works fine, but the water decreases the power of the shot exponentially. A .357 only has lethal power for something like 10 feet underwater.

Even cooler than when Bond does it. One of the instances of real life being even better than the movies.
