    Yep my M&P 15 TS (with 20 pmags), M&P 15-22(with 6 mags) and Glock 23 (with 6 mags) all went overboard last summer while boating. I hope my Sig/Sauer P225 and M&P Shield don't end up going overboard in the future....

    I have a Scout Sniper Platoon Leader (SSGT) that would dive for it.

    He has experience since one of his team did not C-clip the weapon onto the RIB when doing a training Op in shallow (though rough water) in the SF Bay. Weapon was recovered after much 'Brow Beating' happened. He and the team decided that cold water dive Ops were better than the paperwork and NJP (Article 13 for you Doggies) that would have happened, had it not been returned to the Armory.

    There is a longer and interesting yarn associated with this particular training Op that I will share in person, but not on the internet. It involves many famous CA politicians........................ Not here though!

    Oh,,,,,,,,your weapon,,,,,,I see,,,,,,,, Darn, its gone forever! LOL

    Is there any possible way that you could rent a trained dolphin to attempt to retrieve it or do you think it is gone for good?

    Unfortunately due to the cash for clunkers impact on the Eco system all the fresh water dolphins are no more. I did see an article on a deep diving Labrador maybe I'll give that a shot.
