Inventory Item Range Report

A new All Range Report button has been added to the Inventory List Information screen. The button has been added to the new toolbar at the top of the screen under the main title. The button looks exactly like the All Notes button on the gun information screen.Selecting this button will gather ALL notes that have been entered into the system for this inventory item (ammo), group them buy firearm and list them in one window.

Inventory Item Edit

Below is an example of the report grouping the information by gun and highlighting any key phrases using the ArmoryBook Phrase Highlighting System discussed above. Notice how the color highlighting draws your attention quickly to the different phrases.

This report can be a great tool when trying to identify problems with a specific ammo (ammo has problems with all guns) or when tracking the performance of a specific firearm with respect to a specific ammo (only one firearm is having problems while all others work fine).

Note: ONLY range trips with notes will be displayed, if no notes where entered then it will not be included in this report.

ArmoryBook Phrase Highlighting System

ArmoryBook has had a phrase highlighting system for quite some time that is used to highlight key portions of a note when it is displayed, NOT when it is being entered. Highlighting allows for quick visual identification of the key parts when scanning the whole document. This update has added 4 additional key phrase options:

  • POA - Point Of Aim
  • POI - Point Of Impact
  • FTE - Failure To Eject
  • FTF - Failure To Feed

Below is a list of all the phrases built into ArmoryBook, followed by an explanation of the format for the phrase and examples. The format of the rules can be very complex, this is done so that matching is not strict (only allowing one way of entering a phrase) and will be more user-friendly. If you are having a hard time deciphering the rules look at the example text below the rule.

Explanation of phrase format notation:
  • [] - Holds a group of characters or letters, often used with the ? symbol. [] can be nested inside of another [] to form complex groups.
  • | - Indicates an OR condition, meaning either what is on the left or the right of the | can be used
  • ? - What precedes the ? is NOT required, so in the following example [front|rear]? you could have front, rear or NOTHING
  • Any letters directly in the format string are required to match the rule

Ammo Purchase Inventory Changes

A new copy button has been added to the Ammo Purchase screen. If you are fully utilizing the ArmoryBook inventory system this button can be used to save a lot of typing. For instance, if your order contains multiple caliber line items, this button can be used to duplicate the "original" order and create individual orders for each caliber, thus allow ArmoryBook to track each caliber purchase/inventory properly. Another great use of this new button is for repeat purchases, like 9mm "plinking" ammo. Simply highlight the previous order, copy it and change the relevant dates and amounts. The copy button is highlighted in the image below.

Duplicate Ammo Purchase

Deleting Purchase Order

When purchase orders are now deleted the system will delete automatically created inventory items that have not already been used (items associated to range trips). Previously, a manual delete of associated inventory items would be required before attempting to delete the purchase order. This new feature makes deleting of ammo purchases a lot quicker and easier.

In the image below a new ammo purchase order has just been entered. If the Add to Inventory option was clicked you would have to exit this screen, got to the Inventory screen, locate the newly created inventory item and delete it BEFORE you would be allowed to delete the ammo purchase oder.

New Ammo Purchase

A reminder has been added to the delete confirmation screen to indicate that any associated inventory will be removed.

Delete Ammp Purchase

Deleting Range Trip

When range trips are deleted any ammo used will be automatically returned to inventory, previously this would have to be done manually.

Range Information Ammo Column

A new column has been added to the Range Information list, Ammo. The new ammo column is highlighted in the image below. The ammo caliber, brand and case type used on for each range trip will be displayed.

Due to the amount of space needed for the new column, a few column names have been changed:

  • Distance => DST
  • Rounds Fired # => Rnds

Range Ammo Used

The new ammo column will allow both searching and sorting. When a string is entered in the search box (upper right corner), the system will look for that string in all columns, including the Ammo column. In the image below searching for PPU has limited the listing to only records that contain the string PPU. The sorting option can be used by clicking in the header of a column. To display all range trips that have used a particular ammo, simpy click in the Ammo column header and all range trips with that ammo will be displayed together. Sorting on multiple columns is permitted (like in all parts of ArmoryBook) by holding the shift key and clicking on multiple column headers. This can be used to group all range trips that have used a particular ammo when determining ammo performance across firearms or when looking for performance issues.
