Interior Ballistics

A firearm such as a rifle, pistol, or artillery piece fires a projectile as a result of the burning of its propellant, which usually is smokeless powder. When the powder is ignited, large quantities of gases are produced. These gases force the projectile through the barrel in much the same way that children blow peas from a pea-shooter. If the gas pressure is too small, the bullet or shell will not reach its target. If the pressure is too great the gun may blow up. Also, if the pressure changes with each shot, the velocity of the projectile will change and accuracy will be poor. How to regulate this pressure is one of the most important problems in interior ballistics.

Gunknife - Will | Ballistics | Scoop.it

Enter the Gunknife a lethal weapon for distance and hand to hand combat. Ever since the first gun was invented someone was designing a way to attach a blade to it. Rifles in war have had knives and swords attached to them so when you run out of bullets or just feel like stabbing the shit outta your enemy you have that option with the same weapon.

Ballistics Tube - Will

Ballistics Tube - Will | Ballistics | Scoop.it

North Carolina sheriff has new way of tracking firearms with forensic ballistics tube.

A newly purchased forensic ballistics tube allows deputies to safely fire a round to begin the tracking. The tube, a four-foot long metal casing filled with Kevlar fiber can stop rounds from an M-16.

The tube, which cost $3,000, was paid for by monies from concealed handgun permit fees, Sheriff Ed Brown said.

Demonstrating how the bullet catch chamber works Tuesday, Sheriff’s Capt. Pat Garvey fired a round from a .45-caliber Colt Defender pistol into tube. He then opened a side hatch on the tube and removed the bullet, which was marked by the unique rifling in the gun barrel.

Brown likened the grooves, called striations, to fingerprints. He said that each set of markings are unique to a certain firearm and can be matched by a ballistics expert.

Garvey said the bullet and its shell casing — which has identifiers of its own including extractor and firing pin marks — will be clearly marked as to which firearm they were fired from, and the identifying information will be entered into a national ballistics databank.

Ballistics - Devyn

The term ballistics refers to the
science of the travel of a projectile in flight. The flight path of a bullet
includes: travel down the barrel, path through the air, and path through
a target. The wounding potential of projectiles is a complex matter. (Fackler,
1996)
