Anyone ever watch this? I was watching it the other night and they proved that if you shoot a 9mm into 7-8 feet of water, it will be lethal. They then tried the same thing with a civil war rifle and it was lethal at 4-5 feet of water. then they used a .50 cal, .243 and I think a .30-.06 and all three couldn't penetrate more than 10 inches of water. when the bullet would hit the water, it would separate into a bunch of pieces. So the most lethal weapon...the 9mm. At least under the water.

i watch it some times but i never seen that one.
ive seen the one where they prove the theory of throwing money off the empire state building and it killing someone wrong

It was because it reaches a termimal speed, right? And once it reaches that, it can't go any faster and the speed isn't fast enought kill? Or was it some other reason?

it was because it was so high that once it reached a certain point on the tower like one of the decks the wind would push it back towards the building eventually accomplishing nothing lol

I think they originally suspected Terminal Velocity. I can see the wind issue. I still would not want to be hit by it on the noggin. You could still poke your eye out!
