I once spent 2 extra days in the field looking for a lost bayonet and another 1 day looking for an M16 that some ass clown dropped out of a Black Hawk as we were heading back into Garrison. Both incidents were on the last day of a 30 day FTX.

Perhaps an Armalite AR-7.
One day while boating, I had a terrible accident. I had brought all of my guns in case we found a nice cove to disembark and do a little plinking. This is the only one that I was able to recover since it floats.

A floating gun does have a downside. This one was later lost when it fell into a fast river

How does it shoot? I held it once wasn't to crazy about the feel of it with the stock was I little too thick but that's just me ! Maybe it seems like a good choice that's if you had it already set up to shoot !

yes. bullets even fire just fine in a total vaccuum. guns do fire completely submerged but you run a big risk of blowing the barrel if you dont drain the water first.

I start having "abandonment issues" once I get out in the Gulf of Mexico.

I feel much better with my .44 Rem Mag.

Great for sharks, BGs, penetrating hulls below the waterline, etc.
