Shotguns A shotgun is a gun that is fired from the shoulder. It is also considered a scatter gun. Shotguns come in a wide variety of sizes. They also have different firing mechanisms.
Rifles A rifle is another firearm that is fired from the shoulder. This guns barrel has grooves inside to make the bullet be projected in a spiral motion.
Bow and Arrow A bow is a flexible arc that shoots aerodynamic projectiles by means of elastic energy. Essentially, the bow is a form of spring powered by a string or cord. As this string is drawn, energy is stored in the flexible limbs of the bow; the energy is transferred to the arrow when the string is released, projecting it much farther than a weapon could be thrown.
BB and Pellet Guns An air gun that fires projectiles by means of compressed air or other gas, in contrast to a firearm, which burns a propellant. Most air guns use metallic projectiles as ammunition. Some others use arrows.
