What quirk of nature and life has made them so still astounds the all-knowing psychiatry crowd, but live they do and more often than not, they are the backbone of several necessary military functions and nearly all lab functions, as active parts of the high tech crowd. They are becoming more and more recluse as the technologies of science give them such opportunity- active members of the internet, but loners, hiding away with their CAD programs, and whiling away their hours in empty tool rooms.Some, like the author, simply get so absorbed in the project material that they have no interest in any other thing.
This is how it has been for many, many years. The realizations that have come from this dedication have been very rewarding experiences. They are here for the awakening of that unusual spirit that marvels as have I for so very long at that phenomenon on the end of a gun barrel, or diesel exhaust pipe. I own every work I could find on the subject of silencing, and for the satisfaction of my interest in history and design development, I have mostly wasted my time and money!
It is my intention that you should not have done so. But please, do not look herein to find advanced formulas of math and scionic studies. My experiences and those of kindred souls are of the School of Empiric Sciences. The hands on school of trial and error that studies everything that comes to those hands and eyes with wonder, and says, Why? - and then goes to the shop to find out.Needless to say, the rage of governments is always hot on the heels of such inventive genius as we, and as so it is necessary to caution the wise and the less-than-wise as well, that there have come to be restrictions in the exercise of this scientific liberty.
Therefore, you are warned that this book can only be studied for the sole purpose of titillation, and academic concern. In other words, should you actually intend to construct a functioning silencer for a firearm, you must be duly licensed or you may find yourself in the presence of some stern individuals bearing badges, cards of authorization, and the force of arms who, for the most part, do not share your enthusiasm!
Theirs is the enthusiasm of numbers that tell the world and their leaders that this is now a safer place because they have stopped your inventive curiosity. Indeed, they wholeheartedly believe that if you make something like this, your only intent can be to use it in some foul and despicable manner that threatens the welfare of all. After all, the history of man well proves that his tendency to regress is stronger than his interest in his own evolution. All are willing to see the dark side, but not one single positive aspect!
At this time of writing, there is great division in the land developed largely from the failure of the ever propagandizing media that makes its living filling the minds of the people with mis-information, due to its own lack of understanding or interest in the simpler facts about arms. We, the people are about to be disarmed, if only on paper, by an ungrateful and small but powerful group that has little or no memory of the men and the arms that gave them the freedom to go so far as to destroy those heroic efforts.But, all patriots know: THE PRICE OF LIBERTY IS ETERNAL VIGILANCE!(Abridged due to character count restrictions)Most Sincerely,~ Justice Ironwulf
