The goal of this short book is to provide some basic education and information about guns. Let’s start by asking, what is a gun? The dictionary definition of “gun” is pretty simple and straightforward: “a weapon consisting of a tube, with mechanical attachments, from which projectiles are shot by the force of an explosive.” Really? That’s it? A tube with projectiles coming out of it? Sounds like a cannon, doesn’t it?
But it’s more than that! Guns have been in American homes since the founding of the country and continue to be used today. What are some specific uses for a gun?
For millenia man has been fascinated with the idea of launching a projectile at animals--or men of opposing points of view--and has developed more efficient ways of doing so.The invention of gunpowder led to the development of firearms. Gunpowder first appeared in use in China over a thousand years ago, but was used primarily in firecrackers and only sparingly in weapons for military use.
Dissemination of the knowledge of gunpowder manufacture to Europe in the 14th century did not at first lead to military usage. However, once the effectiveness of projectiles impelled by the force of gunpowder against both the armor of knight-soldiers and fortifications was known, the use of firearms proliferated rapidly.
This guide will give you an overview of the different type of guns available, including rifles and shotguns. Afterr reading this book, you will have a basic knowledge that will help you with guns mastery.
