Testing to see if you can fire a flare gun underwater (VIDEO)

Sure, Glocks, grenades, and M80s all work while submerged, but what about a good ol’ 12 gauge flare gun?

Taping an Orion Alerter single-shot break action flare launcher to a dumbbell and tossing it into a 10-gallon fish aquarium — no fish were harmed in this video — Edwin Sarkissian gets to work with one of the only California-legal pistols still on the market.

The bad news is (spoiler alert) they can’t make it happen unless the frame is above water, and then the aerial flare, which needs oxygen, doesn’t really do anything.
