To all interested in the YPG Forensic Test Session;
This is just a reminder that the 2004 YPG Forensic Test session is fast approaching. Dec. 3rd is about 3 weeks. If you plan to attend at all you must have let Bill Morris know before Thanks Giving, if you are a new attendee or have moved or changed jobs, you have to have provided him with current security information by then. He will also need a list of firearms and ammunition from anyone bringing them onto the base by Nov. 23rd as well. AZMorris@AOL.com
If you are doing an experiment be sure you have all necessary information to me by Nov. 23rd as well. For those doing radar I will need: Caliber, Firearm, departure angle, ammo make, code #, lot #,bullet type, bullet weight (grains), bullet weight (grams), bullet diameter (mm), expected muzzle velocity and time of flight. I will also need to know what fixtures you will need constructed at YPG to make your experiment work so we can let the carpenters there know in advance. James.Roberts@mail.co.ventura.ca.us
If you are doing photo work I will need Caliber and firearm, type of test (ejection, ricochet, impact, etc.) as well as fixture info. We will be asking all Photo experimenters to try to cut their experiments to about 12 shots or less to allow as many people to work as possible. If we have additional time we will then go back to pick up additional shots for those that want them. We only have 1/2 the time to work this year and more requests for camera time than we can fit. Please have all of your equipment and materials ready and your plan to put them up ready as well, so that we can shorten setup time to a minimum.
