Rubber bullet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

37 mm British Army rubber bullet, as used in Northern Ireland

Rubber bullets (also called rubber baton rounds) are rubber or rubber-coated projectiles that can be fired from either standard firearms or dedicated riot guns. They are intended to be a non-lethal alternative to metal projectiles. Like other similar projectiles made from plasticwax, and wood, rubber bullets may be used for short range practice and animal control, but are most commonly associated with use in riot control and to disperse protests.[1][2][3] These types of projectiles are sometimes called baton rounds.[4] Rubber projectiles have largely been replaced by other materials as rubber tends to bounce uncontrollably.[5]
Such “kinetic impact munitions” are meant to cause pain but not serious injury. They are expected to produce contusions, abrasions, and hematomas.[6]However, they may cause bone fractures, injuries to internal organs, or death. In a study of injuries in 90 patients injured by rubber bullets, 2 died, 18 suffered permanent disabilities or deformities and 44 required hospital treatment after being fired upon with rubber bullets.[7]
Rubber bullets were invented by the British Ministry of Defence for use against rioters in Northern Ireland during The Troubles,[8] and were first used there in 1970.[9]

Riot control use[edit]

Two rounds of Fiocchi 12 gauge rubber buckshot

The rubber riot control bullet is part of a long line of development of non-lethal riot control cartridges that dates back to the use of short sections of broom handle fired at rioters in Singapore in the 1880s.[1] The Hong Kong police developed wooden baton rounds, but they were liable to splinter and cause wounds.
The British developed rubber rounds—the “Round, Anti-Riot, 1.5in Baton”—in 1970 for use against rioters in Northern Ireland.[10][11] A low power propelling charge gave them a muzzle velocity of about 60 m/s (200 ft/s) and maximum range of about 100 m (110 yd). The intended use is to fire at the ground so that the round bounces up and hits the target on the legs, causing pain but not injury.[12] From 1970 to 1975, about 55,000 rubber bullets were fired by the British Army in Northern Ireland.[9] Often they were fired directly at people from close range, which resulted in three people being killed and many more badly injured.[9]In 1975, they were replaced by plastic bullets. In Northern Ireland over 35 years (1970–2005), about 125,000 rubber and plastic bullets were fired—an average of ten per day—causing 17 deaths.[13]
The baton round was made available to British police forces outside Northern Ireland from 2001. In 2013 however, Ministry of Defence papers declassified from 1977 revealed it was aware rubber bullets were more dangerous than was publicly disclosed. The documents contained legal advice for the MoD to seek a settlement over a child who had been blinded in 1972, rather than go to court which would expose problems with the bullets and make it harder to fight future related cases. The papers stated that further tests would reveal serious problems with the bullets, including that they were tested “in a shorter time than was ideal”, that they “could be lethal” and that they “could and did cause serious injuries”.[14]
Israeli rubber bullets are produced in two main types. The older type, the standard rubber bullet, is a steel sphere coated in a thin layer of rubber, weighing 14 grams, while the new improved rubber bullet, introduced in 1989, is a rubber-coated metal cylinder 1.7 cm in diameter, weighing 15.4 grams.[15] Of the lethal injuries from this projectile, most are suffered to the head.[15]

Rubber-coated bullets used against protesters in Ni’lin, August 2013

Smaller rubber bullets are used in riot shotguns, and are available in a variety of types. One company, for example, makes both rubber buckshot rounds, containing 15 8.3mm diameter rubber balls per cartridge, and rubber baton rounds, containing a single 4.75 gram projectile.[16]

Self-defense use[edit]

In some countries non-lethal guns firing rubber projectiles may be used by civilians for self-defence.

  •  Kazakhstan – non-lethal gas pistols with the ability to fire ammunition with rubber bullets are permitted to civil population, and they are also allowed for private security guards
  •  Romania– rubber bullet guns are one of the few firearms that can be owned in the country by private individuals.
  •  Russia – since 1999, the use of non-lethal weapons in Russia is permitted to civil population, and it is also used by private security[17] and law control forces.[18] A variety of handguns (OSA, “Makarych“, HORHE, etc.) are carried with specially weakened construction and barrel with internal lugs, making use of full-power loads and/or firing hard projectiles impossible, while rubber bullets just compress when passing the lug and so may be fired. Most common calibers are 9 mm and 10 mm with muzzle velocity sometimes almost matching normal handguns and bullets as light as 0.7 g.
  •  Ukraine – non-lethal gas pistols with the ability to fire ammunition with rubber bullets are allowed for private security guards[19][20]

Recreational use[edit]

Rubber bullets, powered by only a primer, are usually used for short-range indoor target practice or training, generally with handguns. They are intended for only target shooting, unlike paintballs or airsoft pellets, which are intended for use on suitably protected live targets. Rubber bullets, if used with a suitable backstop, can be recovered undamaged after firing, and reused numerous times.[2][21]

Tragic News from Yesterday

THE BLOG

Santa Claus Shot and Killed in Home Invasion

Breaking News: Santa Claus, of unknown age, was shot and killed by home owner, Jack Koff, 41, for allegedly breaking into and entering his residence at 007 Patriarchy Lane without authorization. The deceased was found wearing a bright red cap and full-body microfiber suit with white piping around the collar, sleeves, and pant legs. He also sported a full white beard and bushy eyebrows.
Though no weapon was found at the scene, tossed near the bullet-riddled body was a large canvas bag filled with brightly colored wrapped packages. Police department evidence officials later discovered that the boxes were filled with children’s toys.
According to police Lieutenant Justin Tyme, “We have clear indication that Mr. Claus penetrated the home by shimmying down the chimney. We believe this because his clothing contained large amounts of ash and grime.”
Responding to reporters’ questions on the porch of his home, Koff stated that around 3:00 a.m. on the morning of December 25, while he and his wife and three lovely children were asleep on the second floor of their residence, he was startled out of a deep sleep by the apparent sounds of a pack of animals walking across the roof. Fearing a home invasion, Koff took his AK-47 rifle from his bedroom closet and walked slowly and silently down the stairs. As he reached the living room, he saw the image of an intruder exiting the fireplace.
“I took aim and fired a number of rounds into the guy,” said Koff. “I have three young kids, and I’m not going to let some pansy pervert come into my home.”
The town coroner, Helen A. Basket, determined that Clause died instantly with numerous bullet wounds to the head and upper back with one puncturing his heart. At a press conference held later in the day, Police Chief Reed Mylipps indicated that while the incident is still under investigation, at this point his department does not intend to press charges against Mr. Koff since it appears to be a case of justifiable homicide.
Claus leaves behind a wife, nine flying reindeer — one with a bright red nose — and a gaggle of elves. The coroner’s office shipped the body back to his home at the North Pole where Ms. Claus will bury him on New Year’s Day in a private ceremony.
This is the second incidence of the shooting deaths of home invaders on Patriarchy Lane in just the last three days. On Tuesday, home owner Lance Boyle killed M&M Red and M&M Green as they filled bowls around his house with what appeared to be sweet chocolate centers — some which included peanuts — surrounded by hard candy shells. Boyle splattered Red and Green’s little bodies on the walls and ceiling of his living and dining rooms leaving nothing for the coroner to autopsy.
Addressing the public during a nationally televised speech today, Wayne La Schmuck, spokesperson for the Nationalist Rifle Association, asserted:
“The justifiable shootings of Claus, and M&M Red and Green prove our point when we rightfully argue that ‘The only thing that blows away a bad dude with or without a gun is a good dude with a gun’!”
La Schmuck urged the relatively few home and apartment dwellers who have not already purchased at least one hand gun, one hunting rifle, and one semi-automatic firearm to run to the gun stores and buy them soon. He reminded parents that weapons not only save lives, but firearms also provide great ways to bond with their children.
“There’s nothing greater than pulverizing paper and clay targets on the shooting range with your kids on the weekends,” he said. “This is real quality time.”
The United States ranks number 1 of 178 countries researched in 2014 for the highest rate of firearms with 112.6 per 100 residents, with Serbia coming in a distant second at 69.7, Yemen third at 54.8, and Switzerland forth at 45.7. On “Black Friday” after Thanksgiving 2015, requests for firearms background checks reached historic proportions with over 185 thousand on this single day.
According to La Schmuck, “Keep up the great work America

1917 Remington “Enfield” of WWI Fame

Hopefully I will be wrong but I have heard that the Remington Company is in real trouble*.
But then they have been doing a so so job lately in my humble opinion. Especially since they have done a real number on the Rem. 700 & it’s trigger problem.

Remington Arms may be in big trouble

If you are a Remington fan, this may be of interest to you. Remington Arms may be in serious financial trouble.
There have been a series of long running law suits and poor management decisions concerning product changes and new product launches and the signs of that may be becoming apparent.
First it was the Model 700 trigger issue. At the root of this issue was the trigger mechanisms allowing the rifles to fire unexpectedly.
This class action lawsuit drug on for years. Remington began settling the bulk of the claims out of court last year without admitting any responsibility. This is estimated to have cost the company millions of dollars.
Next was the decision to buy Bushmaster and pull all the manufacturing of the rifle to Ilion, New York. The result just wasn’t the original Bushmaster rifle and they lost a lot of their market share. Remington tried to revitalize the rifle line with some new caliber offering, like the .30 Remington AR, but the shooting consumer did not accept it.
One of the company’s biggest blunders, in my opinion, was phasing out and dropping the iconic 1100 shotgun from their product lineup.
The 1100 shotgun was introduced in 1963. Over the years it has become an ultra-dependable design and had a very loyal following of hunters and shooters. It became the best-selling semi-auto shotgun in history with over four million sold.
Remington decided to “improve” things and dropped the 1100 and introduce the 11/87 and more recently the Versa Max.
Neither shotgun has lived up to the reputation of the 1100. The backlash from shooters/customers was immediate and harsh.
Remington got the Model 1100 back into its product lineup, but along the way, the company had been sold to a private equity firm, Cerberus Capital Management.
The classic make it cheaper logic was the order of the day and the 1100 is not the same shotgun it was.
Most recently Remington had a terrible launch of its new R51 model pistol.
It was supposed to be a re-introduction of their classic pistol made from 1918 to 1927.
The new model 51 was rushed to market and failed. There were so many problems that Remington stopped production and recalled all the pistols that had been produced.
A re-engineered version has just been released, but consumers are…pardon the pun…gun shy
It has been confirmed by multiple industry sources, that Remington Arms employees in Ilion, New York have been given word to prepare for a temporary work furlough, possibly through the rest of the year.
A furlough is typically a move a company makes that requires workers to take time off without pay, most likely in an effort to save money during a time of low sales.
Right now, the details are sketchy, even for employees, but one Remington worker reportedly told local WIBX 950AM Radio in Marcy New York, “We were told an official announcement with details will be coming in the next couple of days.”
The signs of something like this has been coming for months. Remington laid off 122 workers back in March, and another 60 last month.
Remington, which marked its 200th anniversary in 2016, seems to moving in the wrong direction!
These cuts/actions are not companywide and they should only affect workers at the Ilion location where they produce 700 series rifles, 870, and Versa Max shotguns.
Late last week, the Remington’s media relations department released a statement to WIBX Radio stating that any possible future layoffs would be due to soft firearm sales, along with supply and demand issues.
“The small arms industry is facing significant near term challenges related to slowing order velocity and high channel inventories; a dynamic from which Remington is not immune,” said Remington’s Media Relations Manager, Jessica Kallam.
OOPS! Grumpy
