    Before this thread get censored, here's a couple of shots i took while waiting for a light to change. The woman walked in with the kiddies, and came out without them
    I'm guessing she was dropping them off to work,Kids don't realise how bad it was over 100 years ago when factories put kids to work instead of them being in school

    For sure. I see lot's of kids bar tending nowadays, sometimes they're even in managerial positions. I think If they're under 10 you have to get a waiver signed or something.

    ok, the water was very low and the hole was angled up at about 45 degrees(but rifle was well above the water). the hole was about 18 inches. i stuck it in about to the gas block. It will shot fine at any angle. Ammo was 75 grain tap.

    You NEVER us an AR on Beaver! If you watched the right television show (cartoons), you would know the Illudium Q-36 space demodulator is the only way to go!

    Why are you shooting your rifle pointed up?

    So can anyone explain why my piston ar will not shoot inside a hole. I assume it has to do with pressure but want to know specifics. Thanks

    You said you have shot an ar in a hole. How far in the hole was rifle? I have shot inside holes with a 10/22 no problems( like stick the whole gun in the hole and empty magazine) thanks. and I drink the piss out of some mountain dew voltage too.

    I'd put my money on the angle. When the bullet passes the gas port, the pressure builds. When the bullet exits the barrel, the pressure is released. The carrier does not start to move backwards until the bullet has left the barrel, so it's inertia (I think that's the word I'm looking for) at that point. I've fired my rifle in some odd places and never had this issue. I have heard of others having failures to lock back when firing down at extreme angles.

    The buffer and ammo will play a large part in this as well. 223 with an H2 will be more prone to this than 5.56 with an H buffer, for example.

    I could be wrong, but I can't see this being related to the hole itself. I've taped off my muzzle and used caps before without issue. Everything that needs to happen is happening before the bullet exits the barrel.

    BUT, the OP stated it shoots fine at that angle otherwise, so maybe I'm just plain wrong here....

    Try using a Glock. Wether you lost it in a tragic boating accident or cleaning it in the dishwasher, Ive been told they can shoot under water.

    That being said, a beaver in a hole shouldnt be an issue.

    Wait, I am totally confused. So you stuck the barrel of your AR underwater into a beaver dam entrance, and it won't cycle?

    Why on earth would you do something like that?
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Yes, it will (as will most) but will it cycle?

    My original comment was mostly sarcasm. As far as your question, the guy on the internet shooting multiple rounds through a Glock 17 at the bottom of a pool seemed convinced. So it HAS to be true right?

    Being serious now, I believe Glock does sell an "underwater" G17 but I think it is for police and military only. I swear I saw it on their page but its been a while.

    If so I may have to reconsider one of those!
