Before you watch the video, I want you to post your answer here. They are going to shoot a 44 magnum at a series of water balloons. Where will the bullet stop? Post your answer then watch the video.

depends on the size or amount of balloons,  water will cause alot of resistance, so if there is enought of it , one of the balloons should stop the bullet.

I read somewhere water pretty-much stops a bullets advancement. I have seen guys in Florida (YouTube) shoot their Glocks under water in their swimming pools. The bullets don't go too far. My guess is, (I'm copying UVA7's answer. I think he is right.) The larger the water balloon, the quicker the bullet stops.)

water is like a catapult in the sense it stops something going really fast then stops, I guess if there's u no ugh resistance, it will stop whatever , force meeting resistence= Stop, it's my thought even if I am wrong, look at when you're in a, swimming pool and you try and run, the volume and the weight of water will stop a bull et

waste of a good gun, I treat with respect , clean them everytime after I shoot, and lock them up, I wouldn't want to do this test, I love blowing up targets on land
