AbstractThe acoustical characteristics of five guns, including three calibres and two gun types, were measured to determine their suitability as impulse sources. Comparisons were made with spark and loudspeaker impulse sources. One 0.38 calibre revolver was found to be a suitably repeatable, omni- directional impulse source providing adequate sound energy in the octave bands from 125 to 5000 Hz.
