It’s a week since I received a copy of “Range Officers Hand Book” and since that time I am nearly at the half way mark. I’m amazed at the at the number of subjects you have covered making it one of the most informative books to be added to my collection. It must have taken you a considerable amount of time and experience to publish the book with information not available in other popular Gunsmith manuals. I would recommend the book to “Range Officers” and anyone interested in the sport of target shooting and hunting.

Some, hopefully will read it cover to cover, others will pick a heading out of the Contents pages and read a chapter or two, but no matter how much you know about shooting, reference material is always needed, as even people who rate as genius cannot retain everything. The real ability is being able to find out quickly and easily. You can check that you have the correct terminology, in the Glossary, check the Index and go straight to the right page. This book can be used as an information tool for a lifetime of shooting.

Accurate Firearm Design

What is a Semi-Automatic Firearm?
We must now concern ourselves with what makes a semi-automatic action function, that is, what makes it reload itself automatically without our having to operate a lever, bolt, or sliding forearm, or pull the trigger or cock the hammer of a revolver.
There are many types of automatic arms. First let us dispose of the machine gun or fully automatic weapon. With such weapons, as long as the trigger is held back, the mechanism continues to load and fire the cartridges as long as any remain in the feed system, and the bullets leave the muzzle at a rate of from about 300 to 2800 per minute, depending upon the design of the mechanism. However, most of these mechanisms, except as applied to lightweight ‘Assault rifles, or sub- machine guns sometimes known as Machine Carbines would be obviously impractical to be held by the average shooter at the shoulder or in the hand, because of the effect of recoil often and quickly repeated.
Forget what you have seen in the movies with the hero running about firing his Vickers or M60 from the hip. Only one authenticated event of a soldier using a Browning machine gun in his hands during World War Two, he did receive a medal and a lot of burns, but the Japs were getting close. Usually if held in the hand the muzzle will recoil upward at every shot, and the shooter cannot recover from the recoil of one shot before another is fired. Thus with every shot the muzzle will rise more and more until the firearm is firing almost vertical, and finally it can tear itself loose from the shooter’s hands. So of the machine guns class only a Bren and the BAR Browning are classed for shoulder or hand use, proper machine guns are used on a mount.
The only types of automatic mechanisms which we will discuss here are those known as the semi-automatic, auto-loading, or self-loading, where the mechanism automatically extracts and ejects the fired case, and loads another cartridge from the magazine into the chamber, making the weapon instantly ready to fire another cartridge practically as soon as the preceding cartridge has been discharged, but does not fire it. To fire, the trigger must be released, then pulled and squeezed for each and every shot. Repeated shots may be fired as fast as the trigger can be pulled, possibly five times a second, but here too recoil would have its effect, and in practice the shooter has to recover from the disturbing effect of recoil and regain his aim before he can again fire an effective shot. So the rapidity of effective fire is limited to about one round every two seconds, of course to the extent of the capacity of the magazine. The magazines of existing semi-automatic small arms usually contain from two to forty rounds, depending on the design. For long sustained rapid fire the speed with which the magazine can be recharged is also of vital importance from the military viewpoint.
The power to operate an automatic breech action must obviously be self contained within the firearm, and comes from either the push of the recoil or the expansion of the powder gases.
Finally, before we proceed to consider the various types of self loading mechanisms we must state one principle which applies with all automatic arms which use powder as the propellant. As we have seen with manually operated arms in the preceding chapter, the breech block or bolt must be tightly locked on the head of the cartridge before the firearm is fired. This manifestly does not apply with automatic firearms. Instead we must apply the principle: The breech bolt or block must never open beyond a point determined by the mechanism design until the chamber pressure from the load just fired has dropped to a safe limit. Otherwise powder gas would rush back into the mechanism or into the shooter’s face with disastrous results.

Thoughts for the Week

MR CHRIS FOLEY MP INDEPENDENT  STATE MEMBER FOR MARYBOROUGH, Received These Answers Recently From the Police Minister.  
“The following question was tabled at Queensland Parliament by Chris Foley MP, State Member for Maryborough, on Thursday, 7 October 2010. In accordance with the Sessional Orders, an answer was provided by the Minister for Police, Corrective Services and Emergency Services on Tuesday 9 November 2010. QUESTION ON NOTICE
No 2024 MR FOLEY ASKED THE MINISTER FOR POLICE, CORRECTIVE SERVICES AND EMERGENCY  SERVICES (MR ROBERTS)—
With reference to handguns and knives used in crimes in Queensland for the last financial year—
(1) How many handguns were found to be owned by identifiable, registered gun owners?
(2) How many knives were used in crimes during the same period?”
ANSWER: By Police Minister Roberts
The Bligh Government supports the national legislative framework for weapons regulation and continues to ensure that Queensland legislation balances the safety and expectations of the community, the enforcement requirements of the Queensland Police Service, and, of course, the rights of lawful weapons industry stakeholders. In 2007, this Government commenced a wide-ranging review of the Weapons Act 1990 with a view to maintaining this balance. This review is ongoing and has to date included frequent consultation with peak industry representatives and an invitation to the general public to provide feedback on the draft Bill. It is anticipated a Bill will be introduced to Parliament next year. With specific reference to part (1) of the member’s question, I am advised it is not possible for the Queensland Police Service to provide all the information requested due to the limitations of the Service’s current computer Weapons Licensing System (WLS). This system resides on the Queensland Police Service mainframe which is due to be decommissioned in March 2011. The Queensland Police Service is investing in the development and introduction of a new contemporary Weapons Licensing Management system (WLMS) which is expected to be fully implemented during 2011. The integrated system will include the Queensland Police Records and Information Management Exchange system (QPRIME), customer relations management and electronic document records management systems. It will streamline processes and provide efficiency of service to licence holders, firearm dealers and shooting clubs, including the ability to complete some transactions on-line. The system will also enable an improved recording and reporting of weapons related information.
I am advised that during the calendar years 2009 and 2010 (to date) 38 concealable firearm licence holders have had their concealable firearm licences revoked due to behaviour or circumstances. These include convictions for weapons and other criminal offences, acts of domestic violence and for the breach of licence conditions. Searches of police systems have revealed that for the 2008/09 financial year there were 317 reported offences involving a handgun and 4,008 reported offences involving a knife as the most serious weapon type. For the period 1 July 2009 to 31 March 2010, there were 317 reported offences involving a handgun and 3,197 reported offences involving a knife. The final 2009/10 statistics are currently unavailable as they are being collated for publication in the Annual Statistical Review due for release in November 2010.
The following table shows the numbers of reported offences involving a handgun and knife in Queensland in 2008/09.
Reported Broad Offence Categories by most serious Weapon Type, Queensland, 2008/09

Offence 2008/09                       Handgun                    Knife
Offences Against the Person           149                       1,699
Offences Against Property                39                         389
Other Offences                                   129                       1,920

It does not affect the Police and it does not affect the Crims, only You the Firearm Owner will be the VICTIMS.

I responded with the following.
To David Smith Chief of Staff,  Office of the Minister for Police

police@ministerial.qld.gov.au From Mr Owen , 24 Mc Mahon Rd, Gympie, Queensland 4570.
Dear Mr Smith,

Why Punish without Crime?

Could you please explain your line, “ensure that Queensland legislation balances the safety and expectations of the community,” Surely if it was, you would be able to easily show why your past punishment of the most responsible citizens in our community, licensed shooters has resulted in Queensland being a safer place.
You should be easily able to show that your governments weapons control, licensing system, registration system, compulsory inspections, compulsory attendance, pay through the nose for permits, wait for 17 weeks for a permit, import/export restrictions, boot in the door, search without warrant, are making our communities secure and safer.

You cannot do that, in fact reality is the reverse, all you have achieved is an ever growing increase in crime, you are leaving the people defenceless, being burnt like a candle from both ends, police on one side crims on the other almost working in concert. We the people are your prey, we pay the police at the front door with out taxes and pay at the backdoor for our licences and permits. While the Police sit on the peoples computers, checking the registrations instead of being on foot in our streets we are being preyed on by the criminals, who have the free reign to strike with impunity. Crime increases and then instead of curing the problem you spend millions on producing even more impositions on the harmless. Punishing the innocent an giving free reign to the Criminals.
You will say, that this is not true.

However, on the 9th of November 2010 your Minister for Police provided an answer to Question on Notice, from Chris Foley MP where he states all the rubbish about community safety, ignoring the dismal record of his department in firearm safety, Police shootings, Police losing their hand guns, Police selling their hand guns, Police guns that go missing off the register and having to have a permanent Commission costing the taxpayer millions a year, exposing Police Crime and Corruption. He ignores the Crime of the Police, those he sets to punish and force the most respectable and responsible citizens in our community, those with the best unblemished records.
Your Minister also ignored the question he was supposedly answering.
“With reference to handguns and knives used in crimes in Queensland for the last financial year-
Your Minister answer was “ I am advised that it is not possible for the Queensland Police Service to provide all the information requested due to the limitations of the Services current computer.” In fact he has no answer at all for the first part of the question.
He seems to have no comprehension of the difference between offences, namely, criminal offences and regulatory offences. As the question specifically used the word Crime we would expect an answer in the same vain but his statement covers regulation.
Regulations which will affect the 38 concealable licensed holders who would had their licenses revoked due to changed circumstance, such as moving and having either no club or no safe security, or not been able to keep up with the compulsory Range attendance, due to closure by the State, or health and economic reasons. Not convictions of a crime just a letter to say hand in your property and you now don’t comply with our orders. As to answering how many Crimes by identifiable registered gun owners, he does not answer the question, so we can safely presume that there has not been one conviction. That would be an answer he did not want to give so he avoids it.

Now that is known, could you please ask the Minister, Why continue with an exercise in futility, why spend all those millions of dollars, millions of Police man hours, millions of hours of the publics endeavour, why punish without crime? As they punish the good people and ignore the real crime. If his goal was truly Public Safety he would be more justified in registering table knifes. Now that is apparent to all, the Minister has to be asked.
Why Punish Competitive Target Shooters Even Further With His Draft Legislation.
Why spend more millions on computers instead of putting more police on the beat, on foot protecting our lives and homes.
Is it because the police would rather spend there days sitting behind a computer than filling the role they were originally intended to carry out?
Please do not just answer with another blurb, send some facts to justify your actions against us, or go away and leave us alone, we would be safer without you.
Yours Sincerely
Ron Owen J.P. (Qual)

(If they really wanted to stop knife robberies they could easily allow shop keepers with a Licence to carry a handgun and to use it. Once a few robbers got shot there would be an immediate reduction in the Knife Robberies statistics.)

UNDERSTANDING RELOADING AMMUNITION

Powder Manufacture, Double Based Powder  Continued From Edition 47.

Coming from the dehydration press, blocks of nitrocellulose go directly to a “block breaker” house where they are torn apart. Blocks are placed in a copper barrel fitted with myriad teeth on its inner surfaces. Operators retreat to a barricade when the machine is started. The barrel rotates and the block tumbles over the teeth, which tear in into small pieces. The pieces fall through openings in the barrel into a fibre container below. Nitrocellulose is dangerous material, and fires are not uncommon during this process.
When sufficient shredded nitrocelluluose is accumulated, it is transferred to a weighing station and weighed out into proper premix charges. The charges are then moved to the premix area. There the additional dry ingredients are waiting in precise, prepared amounts to fit one premix charge.
Next comes the nitroglycerine. It is delivered only on call from a special storage area located a safe distance from other operations. Special, carefully levelled, elevated wood walkways are built to facilitate nitro movement. The heavy planks are fastened with copper and non-sparking nails and hardware. Nitro is delivered to premix in an “Angel Buggy.” a rubber tired wooden hand cart fitted with four small compartments. Each compartment carries 25 lbs. of nitroglycerine mixed with approximately 18 lbs. of acetone, which as mentioned early, desensitizes the nitro. The ‘gentleman’ pushing this cart several hundred yards over the elevated walk needn’t worry about hospital bills (or even funeral expenses) if he makes a mistake. I’m sure he would be gentle.  One bump, and his worries are over, permanently. I hope these blokes are well paid. Some foot traffic also moves on the walks, but when confronted with a man and his Angel Buggy, both glaring white, everyone steps off, mud and rain be damned.
Why four compartments in the buggy? First, they reduce the nitro slopping about, certainly desirable, then, each compartment contains the nitro charge for one premix bowl.
The nitrocellulose and dry ingredients are first placed in the mixer. Because of its shape, it is called a “figure-eight bowl.” They are generally oval in shape, constricted in the centre. Each half contains a Sigma blade and the two rotate in opposite directions, feeding the powder mix continuously from one bowl to the other and back in a figure-eight pattern.
The charge is mixed dry for a few minutes, then the nitroglycerine-acetone solvent is fed in slowly while the blades are turning. Gradual feed of the nitro mix is necessary to prevent lumping of the complete mix, just as you must add liquid slowly to flour if you want a smooth mixture. Premix continues for a flexible period of five to ten minutes after solvent addition. The operator must judge when incorporation of dry ingredients and solvent has progressed to the proper degree. No matter how carefully the mixing is done, some small lumps may form. They are undesirable and result in waste, but since they will be screened out later they do not constitute a serious problem.
The premixer is unloaded by means of wood shovels into fibre containers which are then trucked to the ingredients house near the final mix area. In winter the mix must be kept warm. Nitroglycerine is not sensitive while frozen, but once frozen and thawed becomes hypersensitive and will blow up with no more excuse than an ill-tempered wife.
Several premix charges are combined to form a final mix charge. Depending on the powder to be produced, additional ingredients may be added at this point. The charge is placed in the mixer and leveled. At this point a specified amount of alcohol is measured into the charge. Since the acetone will have evaporated from the mix since its addition at premix, the mixer operator must judge when more is needed and add it as required. Only experience qualifies a man for these dangerous jobs.
The mixer is closed and sealed, the cover being fitted with breakaway devise to release pressure in the event of a flash fire. The mixer is then run for about two hours in what is known as “warm mix.” Mix temperature builds up to about 115° and the powder will be soft and gummy. To allow uniform graining later, it must now be cooled, so refrigerant is pumped into the mixer jacket. Mixing continues under refrigeration until the temperature drops to the mid-eighties. Mixing must also continue until the consistency of the powder is correct. Again this is another operator judgement.
Upon completion of mixing, the powder is removed from the mixer and is ready for blocking, a very dangerous process. The mix is placed in the same type vertical press described earlier, then operators retire behind barricades. Pressure is built up gradually to over 3,000 psi and held there very briefly. This converts the rubbery powder to a solid, compact block ready for graining. Note that there is no pre-blocking or macaroni press operation as with single base powders.
Graining of double base powders is carried on in practically the same manner as for single base types. Dies and presses are the same, but the cylinder contains a constriction to prevent the powder heel from being withdrawn when the ram is raised for recharging. Since the heel remains in the cylinder, it is covered with acetone when the press is not operating. Cutting of the strands into individual kernels proceeds as outlined earlier. Drying is much the same, but the water dry process is eliminated. Coating, graphiting, blending and packaging remain the same.
With so many lengthy operations involved in powder production, the question of total manufacturing time arises. Processes are continuous and interlocking and the output of any one stage is regulated to meet the demands of subsequent ones. During accelerated wartime production, single base small arms powder, progresses from the linter delivery to final packing in as little as fifteen days. This may seem like a long time, but represents a vast reduction from the peace time process when time is not such an issue. The bulk of this time is consumed in purifying and drying the green powder.
So far we’ve concerned ourselves only with the traditional extruded-grain (kernel) powder. This type has been standard since the earliest days of smokeless powder. Many European powder mills produce essentially the same formula powders in flake form. To achieve the typical square or diamond flake, the powder is not grained as outlined here, but rolled into thin sheets. These sheets are then sliced into flakes of desired size and shape by sophisticated automatic cutting machines. Thickness and size of the flakes govern burning speed in the same manner as do kernel and perforation size in grained powders. Manufacturing time for flake powders does not vary significantly from the process above.
