AFTE 2014 / Re: AFTE 2014 Hotel Booking-IMPORTANT
« Last post by Rick Wyant on April 22, 2014, 12:14:37 PM »
Hello!
This hotel thing has been a challenge. There are still rooms left at the Westin for the $152/night except Thursday. If you are required to get that rate, we have secured a few rooms at the Sheraton for $152+taxes (the prevailing gov rate). The Sheraton is three blocks from the Westin.  To block your rooms contact the Sheraton at 1 (888)  627-7056 and ask for the Association of Firearm Tool mark Examiners (AFTE) room block.  If you rather stay at the Westin for Thursday there is still rooms available at the $189+taxes rate.  These can be booked by clicking here https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/AFTE2

If you are feeling lazy, for $100 you can take a van from hotel to the woodinville wineries (full tour and samples included). The friends and family folks are doing that. Email them if interested. fam.afte2014@gmail.com

Traders Corner / Loaded handgun transport container
« Last post by Chris Monturo on April 18, 2014, 06:48:48 AM »
Precision Forensic Testing has designed a patent pending container for transporting loaded firearms from crime scenes to the laboratory.  The lining of the container is made from AR500 Steel (armor plate) and all corners are double welded with 80,000 PSI weld. 
 
The container utilizes standard cardboard gun boxes to ensure there is no cross contamination or loss of trace/biological evidence.
 
Protect yourself and those in the area of your crime scene.

We have all five headstamps in the database with pictures (next update).
As for the manufacturing we are working on it.
I got some information from the German side and Allan is working to the US side.
All this needs to be verified.
We will find it out....

Greetings

They call it their proprietary v-crown bullet, but it does have some HST features such as the knurled cannelure.
