Free download Chemical Analysis of Firearms, Ammunition, and Gunshot Residue (2nd edition) authored by James Smyth Wallace in pdf.
There are numerous detailed books on firearms available for enthusiasts, the vast majority of the books concentrating on the physical aspects of firearms. Very little has been published on the chemical aspects of firearms and ammunition, and what has been published is sparse and fragmented in the literature. One of the reasons for this is that manufacturers are reluctant to release in-depth details about their products for obvious commercial reasons.
The first part of the book is an attempt to amalgamate such chemical information as is available in the literature into one publication and also to summarize the history of firearms and ammunition that is of particular relevance to the development of modern firearms and ammunition (Chapters 2 through 15).
The remainder of the book details chemical aspects of forensic firearms casework, with particular emphasis on the detection of gunshot residues (GSR)/firearm discharge residues (FDR)/cartridge discharge residues (CDR) on a suspect’s skin and clothing surfaces. The development of an analytical method to routinely examine samples from terrorist suspects for both firearms and explosives residues is described.
Sources include gun books, textbooks, gun magazines, scientific papers, technical reports, manufacturer’s literature, newspaper articles, private communications, personal observations, and research conducted by author.
