I dont ever see the need for that unless i was a law enforcement officer chasing a bad guy and we ended up in a pond or pool and we wrestled in the water and he pulled a knife, but then again id probably have my knife too

Almost all modern guns will shoot underwater at least once. It seems the last time I said those exact words, c3 chimed in with a whole damn list of guns specifically designed to shoot underwater reliably and regularly.

The photo is from a man's photo journal of jewelry and sculptures and what nots, doo dads, and geegaws that he makes from expanded hollow point ammo that he fires under water (one single shot at a time) to get the fullest and most symmetrical expansion.

There's a video and picture article here on FTF of him using different guns and calibers, and of the different things he makes from the expended ammo.
