Firearms.  Started with Cooper’s Four Rules.  Moved on to fireams nomeclature and safe handling, with a lot of help from the WebPath Firearms Tutorial.  Though now that is out of date, particularly when they talk about the wounding effects of shock waves in tissue, which is now discredited.  Cavitation and mechanical injury seem to do all the damage, now.

We then learned the differences between revolvers and self-loading pistols, parts of a cartridge, and the various types of ammunition and how to describe them.
