When you get down to it, a gun is actually quite a complicated thing. You have charge, which detonates in some manner, creating pressure that forces a small bit of metal out of a hand-held tube and towards a target. It may sound simple, but the combination of doing this and then being able to quickly load another round meant that for a long time after the invention of the fire-arm it was still a lot more effective to simply walk up to someone and hit them with a pointy bit of metal. Not quite as stylish or futuristic though.
The early gun was a complex affair, requiring powder charges that needed to be kept dry, a finicky array of firing systems and a dangerous muzzle loading method. Frankly it’s a wonder that they ever caught on. They certainly did catch on however, and sadly it is rather rare that you see a square of pikemen marching off to war. Nowadays, however, we live in a world of firearms full of some incredibly advanced models, as shown by the huge array of different guns to be found in Shooting Sports. Whatever aspect of the sport of shooting – airgun or something a little more powerful – it is covered in this impressively multi-discipline mag. NB
