Killer Footage Of Slow Motion Underwater Shooting

Richard Ryan does it for science and Shark Week:

The always interesting behind the scenes:

Yea I know about physics, but I still love how water takes a fired bullet and is like “Uh.. NO”…. slows it right down, and hits the bottom of the pool.

I say it all the time, but Richard Ryan knows his way around a slow motion camera that’s for sure.  A few times he references another slow motion underwater shooting video his friend made which I posted a few weeks ago which you should check out if you already haven’t.

I’m trying to figure out how someone in California can stay that white!  I thought I was white, but Richard’s lack of a tan in the pool footage makes me look like Wesley Snipes.  haha and I wear sunscreen too!  SPF 60 on the head and neck area, and SPF 30 on my arms and legs when I’m outside.  I even smell like all beachy like a girl… yea it’s a side effect which caught me off guard at first but now I just embrace it.  I’m old and I have a girlfriend (my not-so-humble-glad-not-forever-alone brag #Jessica #<3), why should I care about having a manly outdoor recreational smell?  You young single guys can get skin cancer and cook outside smelling like Tom Selleck trying to holla at shawty in the fly two-piece who grabbed her purse and went for her pepper spray as soon as the words “Boo, I think you and me should…” came out of your skeevy little mouth.  Note that I used “Tom Selleck” on purpose just to throw you a curve ball so you’d have to google or ask your dad about him.

Supercavitation ammo which he talks about at the end of the video sounds badass!

Richard is wearing the AR-15 Builders Club t-shirt and the Keep Calm And Carry One t-shirts from ENDO Apparel in the vids.

Thoughts?

So rad. Love those gas bubble implosions.

So much awesome in that first video. One of the most fascinating things to me was the little jets of gas that come out all over the gun, like the jet down out of the trigger hole onto the trigger finger, or the little halo of gas that comes out around the takedown pin. Also, the cavitation bubbles at the back of the slide, both from the hammer strike and from the sudden jerking movement of the rear sight.

The string of progressively smaller bubbles from the FMJ (instead of just a tube from the JHPs) was pretty awesome, too.

Wanna look like Richard Ryan? Easy! SPF100 (or SPF Jesus as I like to call it) before you walk out the door. Apply several times a day except on the back of your neck from hairline to collar so that you can display to everyone what level Redneck you are. Despite popular belief farmer’s tan is not an indicator of your level. It only qualifies as a measurement for the difference in your left arm from your right for all you truckers out there. Once you’re done with your day outdoors I like to wash all the chemicals and stink off my skin with the original formula of Irish Spring. Nothing cleans and whitens your skin like bleach in a bar!

This guy has great videos, it’s odd he doesnt seem to do well with subs/view counts.
