Concrete Demolition in Minnesota is the process where buildings and a variety of other structures are torn down by professionals. The scope of these projects varies depending on the size of the building. This in turn determines the complexity of the project. For instance, a simple concrete demolition project is one that is performed for small buildings such as those that only have three or four floors, including the ground floor. For such projects, the professionals have the option of either pulling the structure down manually, or doing it mechanically by use of large and specialized hydraulic equipment. Examples of such equipment include:

1. Excavators

2. Elevated work platforms

4. Bulldozers

A revolutionary method of Concrete Demolition in Minnesota is referred to as selective concrete demolition. This is where the demolition process is controlled and precise. The goal is to remove some parts of the concrete structure while allowing the rest of the structure to remain standing. The main advantages of this method are:

1. It makes it possible to surgically remove what you need to without causing any unnecessary damage

2. It is a much safer method. This is because more precautions are taken to ensure that it has the desired precise result

Reasons to Undertake a Concrete Demolition Project

1. Demand for Land

In some case, people may look for land on which to build either residential or commercial structures. In such cases, it may be difficult to find land that is free, without any structures on it. Under such circumstances, one may buy the land and then demolish the buildings to make room for new ones.

2. Danger

There are some buildings that are not safe and therefore pose a danger to any inhabitants. The dangers can be structural, or there could even be dangers such as asbestos poisoning. If there are any dangers that cause the structure to be uninhabitable, the demolition process is necessary.

Paintball Pistols Ariakon Acp 2.0}

Submitted by: Layne Emerson

If you enjoy playing scenario ball or woodsball, sooner or later you will need a sidearm to complement your main weapon for those tight spots on the field which require quick movement and the ability to shoot fast. Traditionally pistols are the weapon of choice for officers in the field. While they are light and easy to carry around, they lack the accuracy of a good rifle. Most sidearms are virtually useless at any distance greater than 50 meters, and usually 25-50 meters is the best range at which to fire them. When searching for a paintball pistol marker, don’t expect the same accuracy you get with your longer barreled rifle, or you will be disappointed. That said, there are several decent sidearms to choose from on the paintball field. The purpose of this article is to review one of the better choices for a starting paintball pistol – the Ariakon ACP 2.0.

Ariakon ACP 2.0 is the second generation Ariakon paintball pistol marker. It definitely has some nice upgrades and there is a major difference between firing this marker and firing the first generation model. Users in general have noted that the pistol is somewhat top heavy which will take some getting used to if you have any experience firing real pistols. The precision of the Ariakon ACP 2.0 is rather nice considering that the stock barrel included with the marker is a total of eight inches in length.

Overall the Ariakon is a quality made pistol for paintball. The marker itself weighs in at 2.2 pounds. The ACP 2.0 is constructed primarily of solid, metal components. It comes standard with two separate caliber bore sized muzzles and can be upgraded to run a Spyder threaded barrel. The ACP 2.0 runs a 12 gram CO2 cartridge

Some users of the ACP 2.0 have found it difficult to change out the CO2 cartridge quickly as the barrel extends out beyond the CO2 cap. If this is your first time using the pistol, it would be wise to spend some time practicing so that you can get used to changing your cartridge quickly rather than fumbling around with your marker on the field. Depending on the weather and how your marker is chrono’d, you can expect to get anywhere from 20 – 34 shots from one CO2 cartridge.

One of the largest strengths of the ACP 2.0 is the speed at which you can unload and reload magazines into the weapon itself. It is perhaps the fastest loading pistol on the paintball field in that regard. It takes literally seconds to drop and reload a second magazine into the pistol. Once it is in, the magazine cartridge has been known to wobble a little, but it won’t fall out.

I would recommend the ACP 2.0 pistol marker for scenario players and woodsball players. It is wonderful as a back up weapon or when running quick and hitting hard. This weapon is perfect for bunker assaults and other hit and run tactics. It is highly upgradeable and will last you for quite some time with a reasonable price tag.
