YouTuber places guns in concrete to see if they will still fire

The results may surprise you.

The U.S. special forces have developed bullets that can travel underwater, but what about in concrete?

YouTuber Edwin Sarkissian decided to explore this question. He actually stated in his video that his grandfather was doing renovations and four of his guns landed exactly in the middle of four buckets filled with concrete.

Although we find this a little hard to believe, we still could not help but watch the rest of the video. The four pistols used for this scary experiment each had three rounds in them and they were each set up on wooden beams.

The next part was more complicated as Sarkissian had to take a distance from the guns in case they fired backward. After all, such an experiment has never been tried before meaning no one knows how the guns will respond.

As such, Sarkissian went far away enough from the concrete-covered guns that he could not possibly be hurt and pulled a string attached to the trigger to activate the gun and test the outcome. 

What happened next? Were the results the same for each gun? Did any of the weapons manage to pierce through the thick concrete? Did any of them fire backward destroying the weapon in the process? This video answers all these questions and more.
