A gun is a weapon that discharges a firearm when the gunpowder in the gun’s chamber is ignited by a spark, resulting in sufficient energy to ensure the projectile forces itself via the barrel. Sophisticated guns are, to some extent, complex in their functionality. However, they share the same essence as guns from the past as far as firing a shot or bullet is concerned. Let’s take a look at the top 15 guns of 2017.
