did any of you catch it.

It's the one where they shoot at the scuba tank with a rifle.

Can an exploding scuba tank kill a great white ?

I haven't seen too many of those, but the ones I have seen have been good. The first one that comes to mind is when they left the dead pig in the car to see if they could get the smell out and sell the car. Could you imagine opening the doors after that dead pig had been in a sealed car for that long? UGH! :Lin:

If you could get the tank to explode, I’m sure it would.
Problem is, they proved you can’t get an oxygen tank to explode by shooting it.
They shot two filled tanks, one aiming at the end of the tank and the other at the side, and both times the bullet poked a hole in the tank and the tank took off like a rocket but never exploded.

Be honest now, the tank exploded in the last test. The one where they wired a bunch of C4 to the side and detonated it.

Catch a rerun, it was a good show.

True they did, but the myth they were busting is that shooting one with a rifle would do it like in “Jaws”.
They used the C4 ‘cause they like blow’n chit up.
Can you blame’em? ;)
