I recently exchanged email with a contributor on this board who made the point that the topic of ballistics seems to be divisive. I had to agree. I don't know why it is, but discussions about ballistics seem to devolve into yelling matches more than any other topic. It is such a shame. Recently we had a ballistics thread going that was just getting interesting. A point of dispute had arisen between two individuals who seem to have quite a background in ballistics. I was thinking, "Good deal. I think I'm going to be learning something here." Then, everything went to hell and the thread was closed. I'm sure that a lot of people here, me included, are not experts in ballistics, but are very interested in the subject matter. There are those of you out there who have a wealth of theoretical and practical knowledge to share but who would just as soon not debate whether your mother had canine origins. So, as purely a matter of self-interest, could I encourage those involved in the latest dustup communicate with one another in private email to make sure there are no hard feelings? I, for one, really enjoy the contributions every single person involved in that thread has made to date. I sure hope we haven't lost the participation of anyone on this board.
