One landmark in the history of American military rifles is the M1 or Garand Rifle of World War II and the Korean War. The M1 Rifle was important because it was the first semi-automatic rifle that was generally distributed to United States soldiers. “The M1 was a gas-operated, semi-automatic rifle that utilized an eight-round clip which gave United States forces a significant advantage in firepower and shot-to-shot response time over enemy infantrymen in battle”(Military.com team). American troops were able to fire at a faster rate than their opposition by using new semi-automatic guns. Another interesting rifle was the M16A4 which featured four picatinny rails which allow users to add attachments to the weapon.
Army artillery still played a vital role as well in combat operations. “The standard tactic of artillery support was to create a small military encampment known as a ‘fire base.’ Fire base locations were geographically selected to optimize its artillery fire, and be able to defend it in case of enemy attack.” (Miller, 2015). These fire bases were normally set on higher terrain to establish a 360 degree field of fire, increase protection from guerilla attacks, and provide the most effective coverage within the cannons
Drill Sergeant Ross told us that, we won’t get bullets until we proved that we could be trusted. This meant to stay focus and not do stupid shit with our guns, like chasing each other around the camp. After getting our weapons, we lined up and started to march through the fields to continue our physical training. Jesse was behind me, and as we marched he began to tell me about the AM-15. He told me that “this gun could easily shoot 240 bullets within 50 seconds with a round drum on top” whatever that meant.
There's an advantage in using dogs in the military because they are fast, they can get into places a human can not, and the K-9’s scent and hearing are impeccable. These dogs were also used prior to the current wars that the United States are involved in today. The first time dogs were ever used in war was in the first world war,”during World War I both sides used tens of thousands of dogs as messengers” (Michael Paterniti 1). At this time they did not have radio transmission so these messenger dogs helped different units communicate with one another to stay on the same page and warn others about what the enemy was doing. ”In
Not wearing a bulletproof vest means that if a police officer were to be shot by a robber, the bullet would penetrate through the skin, either staying inside or going through the body part, causing serious damage. Bulletproof vests, however, are strong enough to be able to absorb the impact of the bullet and can protect the wearer from small fragments that may come from explosives like grenades. Bulletproof vests can range in effectiveness depending on whether it is made from multiple layers of fibers and thread, to being made of Kevlar, which is a synthetic fiber that was developed by Stephanie Kwolek in 1965.

And due to it being so small due to its composite construction it made for a strong and accurate bow that could be used on the back of a horse easily. Targeted enemies could be easily hit at around 175 meters, by knowing this it allowed the Mongol army to figure out the best tactical distance for the mounted archers to engage with the enemy. Horse mounted archers main tactics would be “skirmishing; meaning they would approach, shoot, and then retreat before any effective response could be made.” (Strategikon, 1984). This was an extremely useful tactic as it enabled the horse archers to attack and withdraw before hardly any injuries or deaths could occur from an enemy due to them taking them by surprise.
Regardless, if Marie is carrying a gun to protect herself along with the required age, twenty-one and over, and her weapon is concealed, her reflexes have to be quick in order not to get shot. According to Admiral McRaven in the article “Texas Lawmakers Pass a Bill Allowing Guns at Colleges” he states, “I am a guy that loves my guns. I have all sorts of guns. I just do not think bringing guns on campus is going to make us any safer. If you have ever been shot at, which I have, then you have an appreciation for what a gun can do.”
A lot of people have guns in the United States so the logical reason is to teach them. Butch Jensen has a good point. If you are going to teach children gun safety, you should start with a lower caliber gun, like a BB gun or a .22 rifle
In many players eyes tackling need to be ban for the safety of our kids I the little league . The danger of concussions are very high in football, but helmet safety has reduces the risks of concussion. Helmets is one of the big deal in the 50s. “Awareness of this sporting context in particular can be surmised from a 1958 paper on helmet design, and concussive blows to the head as causes of chronic traumatic encephalopathy” (Casper). In the 50s there wasn’t may changes until over time on head traumatic.
Some ammunition will not slide on the feed ramp rather than sliding right into the chamber properly. Also when shooting any ammunition make sure that ou shoots plenty of it while getting used to it. One thing that I do with my concealed carry is I put, randomly, dummy rounds into my magazine. This helps with jerking while shooting and will also help with fixing a malfunction fast and appropriately. Another thing that I really liked that the man in the video says that when you are shooting make sure you are carrying ammo that you have been shooting on the range, and shoot a lot of it.
Ian Graham Period 4 10/28/16 Section 1 - Muskets Before the weapons we know now, muskets were a major weapon. Muskets were slow to load taking around 20 seconds to do so and often misfired. These guns had calibers ranging from .69 to .75 inches. Muskets usually fired anywhere from 80-100 yards but were inaccurate weapons but did the job. Muskets could be fitted with bayonets, a short dual sided blade meant for close combat.
The Profession of Arms is similar to other professions in that it produces expert work, and it requires years of study and practice before individuals within our profession are capable of expert work. However, lethality is inherent in what we do in the Profession of Arms, and we enjoy a significant level of autonomy that others do not. Those uniquely crucial pieces are what distinguish the Profession of Arms from all others. The American People trust us to provide security which society cannot provide for itself, and doing so ethically is what maintains that trust and that of our elected civilian leaders.
During the American Civil War, distinct types of field artillery were mass-produced to aid in the battles fought by the Union and Confederate soldiers. Field artillery are characterized as large guns that are designed to be mobile enough to be brought close to the front lines. The several types were, the 6-pounder Gun, 12-pounder Napoleon, 12-pounder Howitzer, 24-pounder Howitzer, 10-pounder Parrott rifle, 3-inch Ordnance Rifle, and the 20-pounder Parrott rifle. Despite the diverse names of artillery listed above, in Layman’s terms all are best known as cannons.
