.45 Caliber Handgun Underwater Shot
Andrew Tuohy of Vuurwapen Blog fired underwater a unmodified M1911. Check the movie for the slow motion vid of the shot.

UPDATE: 06/15/2014: This video was somehow retired from Youtube, so I found another one, even cooler for you! The The Slow Mo Guys fired two handguns underwater (a 9mm pistol and a revolver) and recorded the whole action at over 27,000 FPS (frames per second) with a specialist Phantom V1610 high-speed camera which can slow down the playback by 1,000 times when compared to real life.
