"Project Description: What is your project about? My project is about seeing if guns will shoot the same speed every time. Why did you choose this project? I chose this project because I thought it could help hunters or speed shooters so they could, in a sense, have a competitive edge. What was your result/overall conclusion? My result was that no, the guns did not shoot the same speed every time but they all stayed within 100 FPS (feet per second). Why is your project important? My project is important because it could help speed shooters win competitions. "
