    You do a good job of balancing looking at and respecting firearms, while also geeking out over the science behind them.

      Firearms are used as a hobby, sport, hunting, and fun...just because you see them as a danger doesnt mean others feel the same way.
      Knives, Arrows, Darts, Javelin, Chemicals, all have had their similar history in the use to primarily kill people...but only Firearms hold the same stigma today....when's the last time you shot a firearm for fun or been at a range with other people enjoying them? Maybe exposing yourself to their better side will help you grow out of the "scary" thoughts about them.....its the people that use them that is the variable, not the object.

      Ive never felt more safe then being at a range surrounded by people with firearms that have demonstrated they know how to handle them effectively and everyone has the same equal playing field. Places like Gun Free Zones have statistically been proven to be the most dangerous places in the world because only the people with intent to do harm to others have that advantage and they look to use it while others are helpless and defenseless.

      People like you need to understand that the people around you are not terrorists looking to mutilate everyone else, there are less than a handful of those types of people and they are the ones always plastered on the news...statistics dont fare well when looking negatively on firearms because most people that own them respect them and buy them to protect themselves and their loved ones. Whats worse is people are more scared of firearms than doctors but doctors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the USA and firearms are at the bottom of charts, almost everything around you kills more people per year than all firearms combined.

      @gsurfer04 Correct. And they are still important! I would rather have good and bad guys with firearms, rather than only bad guys with them. So, it is okay to be a firearm owner!

      You should check out thermal defense solutions for their 3d printed suppressors. Their company was formed based off of the Navy's specwar study into silencers, the Navy failed because the machinery to make the suppressors wasn't available. TDS is making them with said machinery and holy s**** is the process fascinating

        Can anyone elaborate on this, i wonder at what point does something come invisible under a microscope for example when they zoom into something so many times and still find factories of many things at which point does it become nothing because it so much more easier to accept something getting bigger and bigger which becomes easier to see. Anyone ??

            I like the little disclaimer in the beginning. A firearm is a tool. (Or, a hammer is a weapon) It depends on the hands wielding it.

            Haha i just realized that is basically the same as all the other comments. peace

              How can particles of propellant exit ahead of the bullet? Doesn't the bullet make a tight fit in the barrel and a gas proof seal? Does it happen in the supressor? Thanks for posting.

                          I am a long range rifle shooter and have always found the transonic boundary and how much affect it has on accuracy very interesting. I would love to see it in real time with your camera work. Don’t know how it could be possible.

                                  Hey. Stop apologizing for thinking weapons are cool. They are objects, neither good nor bad. They are used for good and bad EVERY DAY. They are cool, and they are useful and they have a place in civilized society.

                                    You remind me of Eric Holder saying how gun owners need to be brainwashed to feel guilt for being gun owners much like the way smokers feel guilt for smoking.

                                        Destin, you are not using guns in any bad way. For you, they are a fun and fascinating toy and hobby device, which you treat with respect and discipline. There's nobody to criticize you other than some confused people that don't know you.
                                        Keep doing what you do!

                                            for some reason whenever i see someone interested by guns i imagine cavemen interested in fire but this wasn't as bad because it lacked the macho attitude that usually erupts from gun fire.

                                                Is it possible that the powder and gasses escape ahead of the bullet due to setback of the bullet from the rifling of the barrel?
