Read e-book online Handbook of Knots PDF

By Des Pawson

Хорошо сделанная аглийская книга о веревочных узлах. Морские, рыболовные и хозяйственные узлы разжеваны в этой книге до мелочей. Цветные фотографии, расставленные в поступательном порядке, помогут связать узел любой сложности, человеку вообще не знакомому с английским языком. Книга попала мне в руки, когда я учился на шкипера, и очень понравилась, надеюсь, и вам она доставит столько же удовольствия!

But relying upon any mechanical system to the extent of ignoring the muzzles is a ticket to catastrophe. Control of the muzzles is control of safety. In some ways, a hammer gun is safer than a hammerless. You can tell at a glance whether a hammer gun is cocked; with a hammerless gun, you have to assume that it's cocked any time the action is closed.

That doesn't in itself mean they're unsafe with nitro cartridges. Some others were originally nitro-proofed, but similarly, that doesn't mean they're safe to shoot now.
