A gun is a ranged weapon plannedto utilizea shooting tube (gun barrel) to begintypically solid projectiles, but shouldalso project pressurized liquid (e.g. water guns/cannons, spray guns for painting or pressure washing, projected water disruptors, and technically also flamethrowers), gas (e.g. light-gas gun) or even charged particles (e.g. plasma gun). Solid projectiles may be free-flying (as with bullets and artillery shells) or tethered (as with Taser guns, spearguns and harpoon guns). A large-caliber gun is also referred to as a cannon.

The means of projectile propulsion vary according to designs, but are traditionally effected pneumatically by a high gas pressure contained within the barrel tube, produced either through the rapid exothermic combustion of propellants (as with firearms), or by mechanical compression (as with air guns). The high-pressure gas is introduced behind the projectile, pushing and accelerating it down the length of the tube, imparting sufficient beginvelocity to sustain its further travel towards the target once the propelling gas ceases acting upon it after it exits the muzzle. Alternatively, new-concept linear motor weapons may employ an electromagnetic field to achieve acceleration, in which case the barrel may be substituted by tutorialrails (as in railguns) or wrapped with magnetic coils (as in coilguns).

The first devices identified as guns appeared in China from around CE 1000. By the 12th century, the technology was spreading through the rest of Asia, and into Europe by the 13th century.

Etymology

The origin of the English word gun is considered to derive from the name given to a particular historical weapon. Domina Gunilda was the name given to a remarkably large ballista, a mechanical bolt throwing weapon of enormous size, mounted at Windsor Castle during the 14th century. This name in turn may have derived from the Old Norse woman's proper name Gunnhildr which combines two Norse words referring to battle. In any case the term gonne or gunne was applied to early hand-held firearms by the late 14th or early 15th century.

History

Hand cannon from the Chinese Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368)
Western European handgun, 1380
Depiction of a musketeer (1608)

The first device identified as a gun, a bamboo tube that utilize gunpowder to fire a spear, appeared in China around AD 1000. The Chinese had previously invented gunpowder in the 9th century.[full citation needed]

An early kindof firearm (or portable gun) is the fire lance, a black-powder–filled tube attached to the end of a spear and utilize as a flamethrower; shrapnel was sometimes territory in the barrel so that it would fly out together with the flames.[full citation needed][full citation needed] The earliest depiction of a gunpowder weapon is the illustration of a fire-lance on a mid-10th century silk banner from Dunhuang. The De'an Shoucheng Lu, an accof the siege of De'an in 1132, records that Song forces utilize fire-lances versusthe Jurchens.

In due course, the proportion of saltpeter in the propellant was increased to maximise its explosive power.[full citation needed] To better withstand that explosive power, the paper and bamboo of which fire-lance barrels were originally angry came to be replaced by metal. And to take full advantage of that power, the shrapnel came to be replaced by projectiles whose size and shape filled the barrel more closely.[full citation needed] With this, the three primaryfeatures of a gun were put in place: a barrel angry of metal, high-nitrate gunpowder, and a projectile which totally occludes the muzzle so that the powder charge exerts its full potential in propellant effect.

Breech-loading guns called cetbang were utilize by the Majapahit Empire during the conquest of Nusantara in 1336–1350. The knowledge of making powder weapons in Java is thought to have originated from the Mongol invasion in 1293. These swivel guns mounted on various vessels of the Majapahit navy were utilize to amazingresultversustraditional boarding-style warfare of other kingdoms in the archipelago.

One theory of how gunpowder came to Europe is that it angry its methodalong the Silk Road through the Middle East; another is that it was brought to Europe during the Mongol invasion in the first half of the 13th century.[full citation needed][full citation needed] English Privy Wardrobe acc list "ribaldis", a kindof cannon, in the 1340s, and siege guns were utilize by the English at Calais in 1346. The earliest surviving[clarification needed] firearm in Europe has been found from Otepää, Estonia and it dates to at least 1396.

Around the late 14th century in Europe, smaller and portable hand-held cannons were developed, creating in resultthe first smooth-bore privatefirearm. In the late 15th century the Ottoman empire utilize firearms as part of its regular infantry.

The first successful rapid-fire firearm is the Gatling Gun, invented by Richard Gatling and fielded by the Union forces during the American Civil War in the 1860s. The Maxim gun, the first machine gun came shortly thereafter, developed in 1885 by Hiram Maxim.

The globes first submachine gun (a fully automatic firearm which fires pistol cartridges) able to be maneuvered by a single soldier is the MP 18.1, invented by Theodor Bergmann. It was introduced into service in 1918 by the German Army during GlobeWar I as the basicweapon of the Stosstruppen (assault groups specialized in trench combat).

The first assault rifle was introduced during GlobeWar II by the Germans, known as the StG44. It was the first firearm to bridge the gap between long range rifles, machine guns, and short range submachine guns. Since the mid-20th century, guns that fire beams of energy rather than solid projectiles have been developed, and also guns that shouldbe fired by means other than the utilizeof gunpowder.

Operating principle

Most guns utilizecompressed gas confined by the barrel to propel the bullet up to high speed, though devices operating in other method are sometimes called guns. In firearms the high-pressure gas is generated by combustion, usually of gunpowder. This principle is similar to that of internal combustion engines, except that the bullet leaves the barrel, while the piston transfers its motion to other parts and returns down the cylinder. As in an internal combustion engine, the combustion propagates by deflagration rather than by detonation, and the optimal gunpowder, like the optimal motor fuel, is resistant to detonation. This is because much of the energy generated in detonation is in the form of a shock wave, which shouldpropagate from the gas to the solid structure and heat or damage the structure, rather than staying as heat to propel the piston or bullet. The shock wave at such high temperature and pressure is much faster than that of any bullet, and would leave the gun as sound either through the barrel or the bullet itself rather than contributing to the bullet's velocity.

Components

Barrel

Rifling of a 105 mm Royal Ordnance L7 tank gun.

Barrel kind include rifled—a series of spiraled grooves or angles within the barrel—when the projectile requires an induced spin to stabilize it, and smoothbore when the projectile is stabilized by other means or rifling is undesired or unnecessary. Typically, interior barrel diameter and the relatedprojectile size is a means to identify gun variations. Bore diameter is reported in several method. The more conventional measure is reporting the interior diameter (bore) of the barrel in decimal fractions of the inch or in millimetres. Some guns—such as shotguns—report the weapon's gauge (which is the number of shot pellets having the same diameter as the bore produced from one English pound (454g) of lead) or—as in some British ordnance—the weight of the weapon's usual projectile.

Projectile

A gun projectile may be a simple, single-piece item like a bullet, a casing containing a payload like a shotshell or explosive shell, or complex projectile like a sub-caliber projectile and sabot. The propellant may be air, an explosive solid, or an explosive liquid. Some variations like the Gyrojet and certain other kind combine the projectile and propellant into a single item.

Terminology

The term gun may refer to any sort of projectile weapon from hugecannons to small firearms including those that are usually hand-held (handgun). The word gun is also commonly utilize to describe objects which, while they are not themselves weapons, produce an resultor possess a form which is in some methodevocative of a handgun or long gun.

The utilizeof the term "cannon" is interchangeable with "gun" as words borrowed from the French language during the early 15th century, from Old French canon, itself a borrowing from the Italian cannone, a "hugetube" augmentative of Latin canna "reed or should". Latestscholarship indicates that the term "gun" may have its origins in the Norse woman's name "Gunnildr" (which means "War-sword"), which was often shortened to "Gunna". The earliest recorded utilizeof the term "gonne" was in a Latin document circa 1339. Other names for guns during this era were "schioppi" (Italian translation-"thunderers"), and "donrebusse" (Dutch translation-"thunder gun") which was incorporated into the English language as "blunderbuss". Artillerymen were often referred to as "gonners" and "artillers" Early guns and the men who utilize them were often relatedwith the devil and the gunner's craft was considered a black art, a point reinforced by the smell of sulfur on battlefields madefrom the firing of guns along with the muzzle blast and accompanying flash.

The word cannon is retained in some cases for the actual gun tube but not the weapon system. The title gunner is applied to the member of the squadcharged with operating, aiming, and firing a gun.

Autocannons are automatic guns plannedprimarily to fire shells and are mounted on a caror other mount. Machine guns are similar, but usually plannedto fire easyprojectiles. In some calibers and some usages, these two definitions overlap.

In contemporary military and naval parlance the term gun has a very specific meaning and refers solely to any large-caliber, direct-fire, high-velocity, flat-trajectory artillery piece employing an explosive-filled hollowed metal shell or solid bolt as its basicprojectile.[citation needed] This later usage contrasts with large-calibre, high-angle, low-velocity, indirect-fire weapons such as howitzers, mortars, and grenade launchers which invariantly employ explosive-filled shells. In other military use, the term "gun" refers primarily to direct fire weapons that capitalize on their muzzle velocity for penetration or range. In modern parlance, these weapons are breech-loaded and built primarily for long range fire with a low or almost flat ballistic arc. A variation is the howitzer or gun-howitzer plannedto offer the ability to fire both low or high-angle ballistic arcs. In this use, example guns include naval guns. A less strict appof the word is to identify one artillery weapon system or non-machine gun projectile armament on aircraft.[citation needed]

A associatedmilitary utilizeof the word is in describing gun-kindfission weapon. In this instance, the "gun" is part of a nuclear weapon and include an explosively propelled sub-critical slug of fissile material within a barrel to be fired into a second sub-critical mass in order to initiate the fission reaction. Potentially confused with this usage are tinynuclear devices capable of being fired by artillery or recoilless rifle.[citation needed]

In civilian use, the captive bolt pistol is utilize in agriculture to humanely stun farm animals for slaughter.

Shotguns are normally civilian weapons utilize primarily for hunting. These weapons are typically smooth bored and fire a shell containing tinylead or steel balls. Variations utilizerifled barrels or fire other projectiles including solid lead slugs, a Taser XREP projectile capable of stunning a target, or other payloads. In military versions, these weapons are often utilize to burst door hinges or locks in addition to antipersonnel utilize.[citation needed]
