Problem Barrels We are pleased to announce an expansion to our services; we now have the capability to offer our new borescope barrel investigation using high-tech video and digital imaging processes. The precision borescope allows us to evaluate the condition of a bore for scratches, pits, corrosion or other anomalies. We have used them for checking the quality of a just-cut chamber, the concentricity of a throat with bore, and the concentricity of lands with grooves. It reveals whether a chambering reamer cut cleanly or smeared the "down stream" edge of a land. A borescope can reveal the degree of bullet jacket or moly fouling in your barrel and where it occurs earliest. It also discloses which cleaners work with the least effort and which ones do the best job. 20 Most Inspirational Quotes by Steve Jobs Oct 6, 2011 The world lost a visionary yesterday.

How to Create a Captivating Presentation “Creativity” isn’t the first word you’d associate with the average business presentation. The phrase “Death by PowerPoint” has been a cliché for years, but sadly the same clichés are being perpetuated day in day out – slides “designed” using hideous templates, crawling with bullet points and paragraphs in tiny fonts, which presenters then read out in a monotone (turning their backs to the audience), using interchangeable meaningless corporate jargon.

Maybe, like many creatives, you are slightly shy by nature, at your most comfortable when seated at your desk or alone in the studio with your work. As an introverted poet, I can relate. But I managed to transform myself from someone who was terrified of standing up in front of an audience to an in-demand public speaker and workshop leader.

Apple iOS 5 Mobile Review It seems like every time a major software revision comes along, it’s described as the “biggest ever.” In the case of iOS 5, though, that might not be hyperbole—there’s hardly a part of Apple’s mobile operating system that isn’t altered in some way by the latest update. Don’t think that this is just change for change’s sake, however. By and large, iOS 5’s changes are for the better, spackling a number of shortcomings and gaps in functionality that have existed since day one. Tempting as it may be to dub iOS 5 the “Snow Leopard” of iOS, though, it’s clear there’s a lot more to this than simply filling gaps. iOS 5 marks the first major revision of iOS to be simultaneously released for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

In fact, the software seems to be able to record – and send to third parties – just about everything a user does on their phone.
