    Default Good hunting!

    Hello to the members here.

    Often when I research a subject, this forum comes up. I figured it is about time to join and learn more and also to contribute in those areas where I can.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    Regards

    Gerard

    Welcome on board Gerard. Your experience sounds a little like mine. I mucked around reading things on this forum for a year or two before I joined.

    When I joined the collective wisdom of the entire AH community dropped a couple of points. I am sure your membership will raise it back up to where it was before I came on board.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Gerrit, every so often I have a look for bad experiences due to bullet failure. I have spent the last 30 or so years chasing such things down and eliminating them. Bullet failures would fall into two categories: Bullet design that makes it difficult to hit what one is shooting at and bullet failure once the bullet transitions from flight to submerged in the target.

    Also, the search is always on for persons or research institutions that are doing work in similar fields.

    this is a subject that can have one busy for some time (30 Years), as bullet failure has so may factors influencing it. even a very good bullet will have some extend of failure when hitting hard bone!!! please post some of your findings as this would make for interesting reading?

    Looking forward

    Gerrit, I am not going there. Many (so called) problems are deemed insoluble and, when one finds solutions and talk about it, those who deem the problem insoluble, turn to derision.

    This leads to name calling and, when someone makes fun of me, I make fun right back at them. It does not sit well with most moderators and leads to banning.

    welcome to Ah, and i think you must be referring to another site i have heard about that seems to have a bit of a reputation for people who know everything....or think they do , i think you will find that people on here are open to discussion and disagreement in a fairly laid back easy going way. it doesnt usually take all powerful supermoderator Brickburn to step in, as the populace usually tell the person who is getting a bit irate to wind his neck in and calm down...so go ahead and reveal your thinkings on the subject/s .

    The only part of that concern that will get my attention is the "derision". People want to debate, go to town and have fun. Agreeing to disagree is usually the mode for the more respectful folks here.


    Please share your research. I am interested in learning.

    Gerard,

    Are you going to tell the good folks on AH what you do for a living?

    Is that a Barnes Bullet in your avatar?

    Humor is an essential part of daily life and respect is always a given. It is good to remember that always.

    Mike, I was hoping not to tell as it may tread on some toes, grown men can be so sensitive at times. Just exchanging ideas and info would be good and, no, that is not a Barnes bullet in my avatar. Just feeling my way for the moment.

    At a social evening a bunny person asked what we did for a living. I replied that we are in fast moving consumables. The bunny person became very interested and wanted more info. I said that we had found a commodity that people bought with the express purpose of getting rid of it as fast as possible and, that we do not want to talk too much about it. It is a niche market, I said.
