You should know by now that one my life's greatest passions is reading and collecting comic books. Call me a dork, call me a nerd or call me whatever you would like to. I do not mind. Comic books are becoming quite trendy anyway. Soon enough, you will be the dork and the nerd for refusing to acknowledge the art form that is comic books, which is exactly what they are. Many of the writers are top notch and could scoff with good reason at the scrawling I call writing on Keepshooting.com. But the true art, however, is in the art.
The art found in comic books is sometimes handled by a single person. More often than not, a three-person team pools their efforts. That team typically consists of a penciller, an inker and a colorist. Because the colorist's job is self-explanatory, I will move straight to the others. The preliminary artwork is created by the penciller, which comes to think of it has a pretty self-explanatory job as well. Either way, the penciller lays the groundwork by drawing the images found in each panel. Sometimes they are rough breakdowns that do not resemble the finished product much at all. Other times, they are an excellent representation of the finished product. Next up is the inker, who is often ridiculed as being nothing more than a glorified tracer. The inker lays down black ink over the penciller's artwork and can sometimes seriously affect the looks of the finished product.
Speaking of tracers now would be a good time to mention one of my other passions – shooting. In the world of firearms, tracers tend to refer to a type of ammunition that allows the shooter to follow the trajectory of a fired bullet. Sound like something you would be interested in? Good, because Keepshooting.com now carries 7.62x39mm tracer ammunition. Each box of 7.62x39mm tracer ammunition contains 20 cartridges, each of which features a 147gr full metal jacket bullet. These cartridges utilize brass cases and will work perfectly with any AK-47 or SKS rifle.
Our 7.62x39mm tracer ammunition is made to the highest specifications right here in the United States. Pick up a box for only $14.95.
As noted, tracer ammunition refers to bullets that are manufactured with a small pyrotechnic charge in their base. When the cartridges are fired, the propellant ignites the charge, causing combustion that burns bright enough for the trajectory of the bullet to be followed by the naked eye. This makes these rounds very popular with target and competitive shooters because it allows them to make immediate aiming adjustments.
The bullets in a tracer cartridge are manufactured with a hollowed-out base. This is where the pyrotechnic material is located. Typically, this material consists of phosphorous or magnesium, both of which burn very brightly.
The 7.62x39mm tracer ammunition sold by Keepshooting.com is manufactured by Trajectory Technologies, Inc. – otherwise known as Trajetech. Trajetech is an American owned and operated company that specializes in match-grade ammunition covering a range of different calibers.
Every box of Trajetech 7.62x39mm tracer ammunition contains 20 cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 147gr full metal jacket bullet, which provides for higher muzzle velocities. Because they are tracer rounds, they contain a small amount of pyrotechnic material in the base of the bullet that will allow you to trace the path of the bullet after it has been fired. Additionally, every cartridge is brass cased and boxer primed, which means they can be reloaded. These rounds are hot.

Tracer ammunition is not only used to make adjustments for aiming. It is often issued in the military and carries a range of different uses. One of the most popular uses in the military is to direct fire at a specific location or target. Because the bullets are visible by other soldiers, they know to direct there fire in the direction that the tracer rounds are being fired. This may also give away a soldier's position. Additionally, tracer rounds may sometimes be loaded in the bottom of a magazine to alert the shooter that the magazine is close to empty.
