Firearm refers to a rifle, shotgun or handgun using gunpowder as a propellant.

In the industrial and industry context, a "firearm" refers to a type of weapon that uses gunpowder or other explosive materials to fire a projectile. Firearms can be divided into several categories based on their design and intended use. Here are some examples:

  • Handguns: A handgun is a type of firearm that is designed to be held and fired with one hand. Examples include pistols and revolvers.

  • Rifles: A rifle is a type of firearm that is designed to be fired from the shoulder, and typically has a long barrel. Rifles are often used for hunting or for target shooting.

  • Shotguns: A shotgun is a type of firearm that fires a shell containing multiple pellets or a single slug. Shotguns are often used for hunting birds or other small game, as well as for sport shooting.

  • Assault rifles: An assault rifle is a type of rifle that is designed for rapid fire and is often used by military forces. Assault rifles are characterized by their selective fire capabilities, which allow the shooter to switch between semi-automatic and automatic fire modes.

  • Machine guns: A machine gun is a type of firearm that is capable of sustained automatic fire. Machine guns are typically used by military forces.

Overall, firearms can be used for a variety of purposes, including hunting, sport shooting, self-defense, and military combat. Firearms are regulated in many countries, and ownership and use are often subject to strict laws and regulations.
