Firearms & Ballistics

A type of bullet with a flattened head is known as what? What’s the difference between a revolver and a handgun?

If taking the course with instructor evaluation, students must submit 1 interpretation exercise and 1 glossary in order to receive a certificate of completion.

Feedback from interpreters who took this course:

“I liked it! Very useful to me…learned a lot about firearms, and had to go to Deaf community members to develop ‘language-specific’ output. Very beneficial to me as I really had no schema (just layman) about guns.”
