As for the meteor that flew over Chelyabinsk in Russia this morning...

I'm sure you've all seen videos of this spectacular event; the meteor was the size of a 10 ton truck... and another asteroid is passing very close to Earth this Friday evening, the size of a small swimming pool. Here are some Photoshop responses from Russian sources regarding the first event:

"Simpler is better... So I'll prepare an instrument or an apparatus for a picture then just go for it. If I'm lucky it works out the first time, but often the initial test tells me how the idea will actually look or be rendered."

Andrew Tuohy did not use an extremely rare Russian designed firearm to make his underwater videos like you suggest. He used ordinary handguns (Glock and a 1911) commonly available in the U.S. and Europe.
