... you corroborate your observations by studying him at close range? Besides,
already it seems to me that certain unmistakable signs are visible; I mean that
strange physical phase which Dr. Lamour dwells on: the symmetry of feature and
limb, the curiously spiritual beauty. Do you not notice these? Or is my sight so dim
that I only imagine it?" "He is certainly symmetrical—and—in a certain way—
almost handsome in regard to features," she admitted, looking at Carden. "Poor,
poor boy!

(c) The tracer from the Bofors gun and Oerlikons was definitely seen to make
some attacking aircraft jink. The pom-poms, although they were seen to hit the
enemy, did not frighten him during his approach due to lack of tracer. (D) All close
range weapons should have at least 15 degrees of depression. 7. The Bofors
gun on the quarterdeck fired without a stoppage. The tracer is most effective and
it is considered that in KGV Class these guns should be mounted as follows: two

Point-blank, effectively. Which should be—all right. She'd be a high-deflection
target herself, while her gunners would be shooting from a comparatively stable
platform. 'Tony—open fire on the turn, range'll be two hundred, two-fifty yards. ...
Tracer coming the other way was multi-coloured, seeming to lift slowly then pick
up speed and scorch by in a flash: except that lot, a stream of it slashing
explosively down the starboard side, a stink like horses being shod that cleared

23,900 yards or more than twenty miles from the main force. The target was on a
westerly course, making about twenty knots. Rear Admiral F. E. M. Whiting, in the

Of course it does create a good deal of observational difficulty when the object of
interest is accompanied at such close range in the sky by one that is a hundred
times brighter. For that reason the faint star, <f> Piscium B, was initially observed
only at Palomar - that was in the days, now unfortunately past, when Jim Gunn
and I used to enjoy regular observing runs with the radial-velocity spectrometer
that we built in 1971 for the coude focus of the 200-inch reflector. With such a vast

The ammunition, now available in the United States, is sold as a self-defense
loading that is nonlethal except at close ranges. The 12 gauge shell has a
transparent hull closed by a plastic disk and contains 15 rubber pellets, a felt wad
, and a plastic over-the-powder wad. The pellets measure 8.4–8.5 mm in
diameter ... The 12 gauge tracer load was intended for use by skeet and trap
shooters so that they could see where the shot had gone. This round contains a

No sights were used, the gunner relying on tracers to mark the trajectory of his
rounds. In effect he was moving a hose of tracers. He relied on this visual aid to
bring the trajectory onto the target and to keep it there. Lewis gunners used
hosepiping because at very close range (500 yds and less) it was as efficient as
eyeshooting and required less skill. To support it, the usual proportion of tracers
was one to four rounds of ball in a Lewis gun. The key argument favouring high
muzzle ...
