Product Description

While gun design has undergone only minimal change over the centuries, investigative tools surrounding firearm use have grown significantly in sophistication. Now in its third edition, Firearms, the Law, and Forensic Ballistics has been updated to reflect recently published research and new technology developed since the last volume. Beginning with a discussion of the development of arms and ammunition from the fourteenth century to the present day, this book examines:

  • Firearms laws around the world, including legal challenges raised in the U.S. by the Daubert decision
  • Firearms manufacturing processes, the mechanisms of various firearms, and the linking of a particular bullet or spent cartridge with a suspected weapon
  • The origins and development of new science in firearms, including controversies, pioneers, and an exposé of the "quack" purveyors of pseudo-science
  • Internal, external, and terminal (wound) ballistics
  • The nature, composition, and analytical detection of discharge residue left on a suspect
  • The role of the ballistics expert at all stages of a case, ranging from the scene of the shooting incident, the post mortem examinations, the examination and testing of exhibits at the laboratory, and the presentation of evidence in court
  • Recently introduced computer search techniques applied to captured and digitally stored images of marks left on fired bullets and spent cartridge cases
  • Manual microscopic comparison work and computer-based searches on digital images of bullet and cartridge case marks to determine if a particular weapon has been fired in previous cases

Written by an expert with more than 50 years of experience using and handling firearms, this text is enhanced with nearly 250 illustrations, making it a premier guide to the fundamentals of firearms and related evidentiary considerations.

Product Description

This book was written to interest the reader in gun design. The gun industry needs and is due for the next big breakthrough. Every 100 years seems to bring the next big development in firearms technology. In the 1600’s the wheel lock was developed and heralded the first use of firearms. In the 1700’s came the flintlock musket. In the 1800’s came the percussion cap and later in the century the thin brass shell to carry the powder, ball ammunition, and primer was perfected. While the 20th century has seen the invention of liquid propellant, caseless ammunition, and the gyrojet, the thin brass shell has been hard to beat and is still the dominant way to feed ammunition to the firearms of today. We are due for the next big advance, but from where will it come? This book was written to interest the reader on the simplicity and the hidden complexity that good gun designs exhibit and prompt the imagination of the reader to investigate the field of firearms design further. Reading this book will give the reader: • Three ways to calculate the round per minute level of a .45 caliber submachine gun using the M1A1 Thompson Submachine gun as an example and gives sample excel spreadsheets to allow the reader to experiment with different design conditions. • The full technical data package of a reverse engineered M1A1 Thompson Submachine gun. The drawings are shown as individual operation process sheets showing the dimensions for each separate cut on an individual drawing. • The cycle of operations of the M1A1 with illustrations. • The analysis and sample calculations to design an oval magazine spring. This book is unique as it is not a picture book of firearms, a combat guide on how to use them, nor discusses their maintenance or care. It does expose the engineering that can go behind a gun design project. This book not only gives the reader the drawings for a gun but also explains the engineering and dynamics behind it.
