FOR 160 - Introduction to Firearm Identification and Ballistics

Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring
This course prepares students in current laboratory techniques and analytical procedures used in the identification of firearms. While the course involves both practical training and classroom instruction, it is not a marksmanship course, and students will not be trained in the firing of weapons. The course highlights firearm safety, operability testing techniques, and scientific methodologies utilized in modern laboratories for identifying firearms. The primary focus of this course is the examination of the unique characteristics transferred from firearms to bullets and cartridge case evidence. Computerized ballistics and its relationship to criminal investigations are studied.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
FOR 100  or permission of instructor. No liberal arts credit.
