Robert Walker has been involved in firearms examination for nearly two decades. He has been qualified as an expert in firearms, among other subjects, in the State of Florida’s 20th Judicial Circuit and in the Federal Middle District of Florida. During his tenure, Robert has taught courses such as crime scene investigation and forensic photography at various colleges. He is an active police academy instructor, teaching investigative subject matter and also serving as a range officer. He routinely presents lectures related to firearms and shooting investigation to trade organizations, law enforcement agencies, and in the university setting.

At a time when crime scene television shows are all the rage amongst the civilian population, knowledge of firearm forensics is of paramount importance to crime scene analysts, police detectives, and attorneys for both the prosecution and the defense. Cartridges and Firearm Identification brings together a unique, multidisciplined approach to questions that arise regarding ammunition and firearms within the context of investigation. Supplying essential practical information about firearms and ammunition in a clear, easy-to-follow format, this volume:

  • Defines and depicts photographically all varieties of firearms
  • Presents investigative concerns of firearms evidence from the perspectives of evidence preservation and safe handling procedures
  • Introduces readers to the standards of measurement used to classify ammunition, including the significance of names, adjectives, and other descriptors used in conjunction with ammunition cartridges
  • Categorizes and identifies ammunition head stamps from cartridges produced around the world
  • Provides ammunition manufacturing practices for dozens of nations

The text offers a methodology for the identification of unknown firearms as well as ammunition of questioned identity. The author explains the terminology and describes each group of firearms and the aspects that identify the weaponry—including property marks, proof marks, and patent dates. Lavishly illustrated, this comprehensive reference includes case studies to support the text, making it a premier reference for all those responsible for the complicated task of investigating firearms and cartridges.
