Ballistic Allsorts is, as the name implies, the compilation of an assortment of topics centred around the theme of the ballistics of small arms, with a separate chapter devoted to each such topic.
The author, Ian Thompson, would be well-known to most Australian shooters, probably by way of his continuing series, extending over more than a decade, of articles on 'Basic Ballistics' in the Australian Shooters Journal (more recently, the Australian Shooter) and other magazines.
With over half a century of professional, sports and competitive shooting behind him, Ian is well qualified to offer his readers this book. During his career as a ballistician, Ian has worked on trouble-shooting and product-improvement programmes for a variety of existing weapons systems and on research into possible future systems, as well as running the ballistic consultancy service, Baltec. This accumulation of experience, together with his lifelong interest in the 'hows, whys and whens' of shooting allows him to cover the field with an unusual depth of understanding.
