What is a Gun?

A gun or firearm is a weapon that launches one, or many, projectile(s) at high velocity through confined burning of a propellant. This subsonic burning process is technically known as deflagration, as opposed to supersonic combustion known as a detonation. In older firearms, the propellant was typically black powder or cordite, but modern firearms use smokeless powder or other propellants. Most modern firearms have rifled barrels to impart spin to the projectile for improved flight stability.

When was the first Gun invented?

Gunpowder was invented in the 9th century and firearms in the 12th century in China. These inventions were later transmitted to the Middle East and to Europe.

Gangster Guns today

The most common guns on the street used by gangs around the world today are low priced, easy to obtain guns like .45 cal, .50 cal, .40 cal semi auto pistols, the 12 gauge shotgun, you also have your more expensive guns like the AK47 assault rifle which will out gun pretty much anything out there including the AR-15. You also have your Uzi and Tec 9mm's but they are less common nowadays. Mack 10's and Mack 11's are also rare. Most of the guns acquired by street gangs and criminals today are stollen or purchased from private individuals for cheap. Most Gangsters carry hollow point bullets which will do alot of internal damage to the body but they wont penetrate body armour very easily. so most pack 4 or 5 rounds of regular slugs at the bottom of the clip incase a guy has a vest on.

The cops mainly use 9mm pistols, which are not very powerful but carry alot of rounds. cops also have shotguns and sometimes AR-15 assualt rifles.

Pimp my shooter: The amazing bling guns that belong to Mexico's drug lords

Mexican soldiers have seized an arsenal of gold-plated and diamond-encrusted weapons believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel and, it seems, fans of hip-hip excess.

Showing just how flamboyant gang members spend much of their ill-gotten wealth, pictures show how most of the 31 'pimped' pistols found in a raid on a home in western Mexico had gold or silver-plated grips or were glittered with diamonds.

Three of the assault rifles are almost entirely gold-plated and there was even a silencer plated with gold. One particularly image-conscious gangster has made his pistol unique by adding rows of gaudy red and green jewels and a Ferrari logo.

Gangster bling: The weapons were plated with silver and gold, encrusted with diamonds, and one even emblazoned with a Ferrari logo

Silver heat: Even the ammunition magazines were covered with silver

Identification documents were found at the home on the outskirts of the western city of Guadalajara in the name of Oscar Nava Valencia.

The Attorney General's Office said he is a leader of the Valencia gang who has worked with Sinaloa cartel leader Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman.

On Mexico's southern Pacific coast, the Mexican navy announced that a Mexican fishing boat and its five-member crew had been captured while transporting nearly 5,300 pounds (2,400kg) of cocaine.

The 78ft boat was detained on April 27 in international waters, after local authorities received information from U.S. officials.

They found 105 bales of cocaine in hidden compartments in the boat's fuel tanks.

Dazzling: The barrel of one weapon sparkles with the gleam of small diamonds

The boat is believed to have picked up the drugs in Colombia.

On Sunday, police said they captured a man believed to be the leader of the Zetas drug gang in the southern state of Chiapas.

Prosecutors in neighboring Tabasco state said suspect Pablo Martinez Rojas was detained near the border with Chiapas, along with four alleged accomplices.

They said the suspects carried out killings and kidnappings for the Zetas, a gang founded by army deserters.

Three assault rifles and pistols were found in the men's possession.

Large arsenal: Mexican soldiers who carried out the raid found more than 30 weapons that had been 'pimped' with silver, gold and diamonds

Some of the weapons, snatched from the notorious Valencia gang, were almost entirely gold and silver-plated

Handle with care: This gun is so bejewelled that even the trigger has diamonds set in it
