    I've seen portable ultrasound machines used to clean electronic components, jewelery, machine parts etc. Its like a metalic basin set on top of a vibrating ultra sound machine, and these objects can be dipped in water, solvents or even gasoline. Using this machine helps save time and energy since the ultrasound combined with a solvent penetrate the whole surface of any object Therefore can it be used for cleaning guns too ? Or at least field stripped guns ?

  • Is a maul worth an extra $50 compared to an axe for splitting wood?

    Best answer: While a splitting maul comes in wonderfully handy for some pieces of heavy wood unless you're a big powerful Lumberjack man that can handle that splitting maul for a big quantity of wood it's going to wear the average person out real quick sometimes it's better to get a good quality axe with a good... show more
    Best answer: While a splitting maul comes in wonderfully handy for some pieces of heavy wood unless you're a big powerful Lumberjack man that can handle that splitting maul for a big quantity of wood it's going to wear the average person out real quick sometimes it's better to get a good quality axe with a good weight to it

    Rather than to get a splitting maul which is so heavy that it wears you out just pick it up

    The only way to really find out is to go pick up the mall and to pick up the axe and see if you want to be swinging that mall all day long or if you would do better with the axe.

    Me I would get a good quality axe and a cheap splitting maul from Home Depot or Lowe's for when I run across a really large chunk of wood

  • Where is the best place to aim when hunting squirrels with blowguns?

    Best answer: I'd try to blind it first. Shoot it in the eyeball, then you can hunt it with a real advantage.

  • Will practicing with an air rifle make me better for a real firearm as I am joining armed response unit in the U.K?

    Best answer: I spent decades teaching 12-17 year olds how to shoot, we used 22 rimfire rifles. Any experience is good experience - however - practice does not make perfect unless you find someone to mentor you. Buy a small note book and keep track of your scores.

    Best answer: I spent decades teaching 12-17 year olds how to shoot, we used 22 rimfire rifles. Any experience is good experience - however - practice does not make perfect unless you find someone to mentor you. Buy a small note book and keep track of your scores. You should see them move up quickly at first and then raise slower. Eventually your scores will flat line - assuming you are not shooting a piece of junk air gun, the reason for not getting better will be you. This flat line will be your 'cue' to start taking it more serious. Develop a routine - wear the same comfortable clothing, look for any distraction and remove them, tighten or lighten the sling, try different color safety glasses, etc. Best to find someone better than you to give you pointers - failing that - there are tons of articles and books online you can read about competition shooting........for some folks, just skipping morning coffee can make a difference. Go online and find out when the next matches are in your area and attend - you can learn allot by watching others. Pay attention to everything - range commands, what folks do to prepare, and especially how they get into firing positon. After you have watched a match, if you can enter the next matches - do it! Jump right in!!!

    Something you need to consider though. When I was a military instructor - the hardest thing was getting people to rid themselves of bad habits - like flinch, anticipation. I expect the army is used to taking in green troops and training them in a time proven way. I cant image any bad habbits you could get from an air rifle, however, as you meet people at the range, dont let someone hand you anything bigger than you feel comfortable with.

    Good luck

  • What's mm on a fishing reel?

    What's mm on a fishing reel?

    Best answer: It is showing you the length of line that you should use for various line sizes in both English and Metric. The English chart uses the lb. test of the line and the Metric chart uses line diameter instead. mm is the abbreviation for millimeters.

    sorry if nomenclature is wrong. but do you know that thing from the movies? one person is pointing what i assume is called a shotgun to another person. then the person being threatened says something that pisses off the other person, and the person holding the gun does the thing where they push a part of the gun forward and then back, making a sequence of intimidating sounds. but i mean, the person was already presumably pointing a gun that was ready to fire before. i assume the manufacturer didn't just include that feature for intimidation, so what is it for?

    Best answer: No person with common sense and basic knowledge of firearms would consider ANY AR in ANY caliber an assault rifle.

    First, consider that military rifles used for assault tactics today have the ability to fire multiple rounds with a single pull of the trigger (i.e., supports burst or fully automatic fire). No commercially sold ARs support that ability, nor can they legally be modified to do so, nor would such modification easily performed except by an experienced gunsmith with components that are not readily available.

    Second, consider that "assault" is an adjective that describes how the rifle is being used and by definition a "hunting" rifle (keyword "hunting") is not being purchased or used for assaulting.

    Of course, I should also mention that the .300 BLK caliber was not invented for the purposes of hunting. It was invented to as a military rifle caliber that provided superior ballistics to the 7.62x39mm in supersonic loads AND could used effectively in suppressed PDWs using subsonic loads. It doesn't matter why it was invented by how it is being used. Many common calibers, such as the .30-06 Springfield, where first invented for military firearms, but have found common use for recreational and hunting activities; and many rifle designs have been being exchanged between civilian and military uses for over 200 years. The American Long Rifles used to good effect in the revolutionary Battles of Saratoga were civilian rifles owned by their marksman shooters.

    When it comes down it, don't believe the labels that are applied to things simply elicit an emotional response and motivate a political action.
