Marlin Firearms
Olympics Volleyball

Where can you find information about and the value of a Ranger M34 .22 caliber which may have been made by Marlin and may be 90 years old or more?

Marlin made two rifles that were marketed as Ranger M34's. One was the Marlin 80.C or 780, and the other was the 50-50E. The 80.C is a bolt action repeater, made from 1940-1970 (valued from $50-90), replaced by the 780 from 1971-1988 (value $45-75). The Models 50 and 50E were autoloaders., both made from 1931-1935, and both priced from $75-150. My wife's father has passed on to her his childhood rifle. Since he's gone now, we really can't offer too much more other than he grew up in Vermont. The rifle is very clean and is labeled: Ranger 22S-L-L I-M34 MADE IN THE USA It is a single shot only, bolt action rifle that is probably 70-75 years old at least. I'm assuming the model 34 makes it a Marlin although the fact that it is a single shot only seems to go against your answer. I wonder if you can offer any more for me and Thanks.

Squash (sport)

What is the weight of a squash ball?

since there are two different types of squash ball, they weigh in different but usually around the 125 - 175g.

when heated a squash ball also bounces higher because its elastcity has been increased, whereas if it was frozen the opposite would occur.

squash balls don't bounce very high either, this is due to their coefficient of restitution being low, meaning that they conserve much of their energy so that they travel faster and harder when hit making squash a fasst paced and high energy game.

Beach Volleyball

What are the positions for beach volley ball?

Beach Volleyball

There are no formal positions for beach volleyball, the team consists of two players who do not have to rotate positions but do need to alternate serve.

the following is from wikipedia

  • Each half of the court measures 8 by 8 meters, not 9 by 9 as in indoor volleyball (this rule was instituted in 2002).
  • Overhand finger passes are called very tightly when receiving or attacking. Unless executed very cleanly and square to the shoulders, they are ruled illegal. The exception is receiving a hard smash.
  • When using overhand finger passes and hand sets, the standard for double hits is much stricter than in indoor volleyball, and the standard for lifts is less strict.
  • The block counts as the first contact.
  • Open-hand dinks, where a player uses his or her finger tips to redirect the ball into the opponent's court, are illegal.
  • It is legal to cross under the net as long as doing so does not interfere with the opponents' attempt to play the ball.
  • Players are not required to rotate positions; they must alternate service, but there are no 'rotation errors'.
  • Most players, either by choice or by requirement of the rules, play the game barefoot.
  • The ball is softer (lower internal pressure) and very slightly bigger than an indoor volleyball.
