Combining Two Guns Into One Awesome Gun

A gun is a normally tubular weapon or another device designed to discharge projectiles or other materials. The projectile may be solid, liquid, gas or energy and even may be free, as with bullets and artillery shells, or captive as with Taser probes and whaling harpoons.

The means of projection varies according to design but is usually affected by the action of gas pressure, either produced through the rapid combustion of a propellant or compressed and stored by mechanical means, operating on the projectile inside an open-ended tube in the fashion of a piston. The confined gas accelerates the projectile down the length of the tube imparting sufficient velocity to sustain the projectile’s travel once the action of the gas ceases at the end of the tube or muzzle. Alternatively, acceleration via electromagnetic field generation may be employed in which case the tube may be dispensed with and a guide rail substituted.

The first devices identified as guns appeared in China around 1000AD, and by the 12th century the technology was spreading through the rest of Asia, and into Europe by the 13th century. The origin of the English word gun is presently considered to derive from the name given to a particular historical weapon.

Domina Gunilda was the name given to a remarkably large ballista, a mechanical bolt throwing weapon of huge size, mounted at Windsor Castle during the 14th century. This name in turn may have derived from the Old Norse woman’s proper name Gunnhildr which combines two Norse words referring to battle.

In any case the term gonne or gunne was applied to early hand-held firearms by the late 14th century or early 15th century.

Awesome Combination Of Brass Knuckle And A Gun

Brass knuckles, which can be also called knuckles, knucks, brass knucks, knucklebusters, or knuckledusters, are weapons used in hand-to-hand combat. Brass knuckles are pieces of metal shaped to fit around the knuckles.

Despite their name, they are rarely made out of brass; however, the most common material for this weapon is steel. Designed to preserve and concentrate a punch’s force by directing it toward a harder and smaller contact area, they result in increased tissue disruption, including an increased likelihood of fracturing the victim’s bones on impact.

The extended and rounded palm grip also spreads across the attacker’s palm the counter-force that would otherwise be absorbed primarily by the attacker’s fingers, reducing the likelihood of damage to the attacker’s fingers.

Metal ring and knuckle style weapons date back to ancient times and have been used all over the world for many hundreds of years. The Nihang Singhs used an early variant called Sher Panja in the 18th century.

Cast iron, brass, lead, and wood knuckles were made in the United States during the American Civil War (1861–1865). Soldiers would often buy cast iron or brass knuckles. If they could not buy them, they would carve their own from wood, or cast them at camp by melting lead bullets and using a mold in the dirt.

Some brass knuckles have rounded rings, which increase the impact of blows. Other instruments (not generally considered to be “brass knuckles” or “metal knuckles” per se) may have spikes, sharp points and cutting edges.

These devices come in many variations and are called by a variety of names, including “knuckle knives.”

Minigun That Shoots Rubber Bands

A rubber band (in some regions known as a binder, an elastic or elastic band, alackey band, laggy band, lacka band, or gum band) is a short length of rubber and latex formed in the shape of a loop and is commonly used to hold multiple objects together. The rubber band was patented in England on March 17, 1845 by Stephen Perry.

Rubber bands are made by extruding the rubber into a long tube to provide its general shape, putting the tubes on mandrels, curing the rubber with heat, and then slicing it across the width of the tube into little bands.

While other rubber products may use synthetic rubber, most rubber bands are primarily manufactured using natural rubber because of its superior elasticity.

Natural rubber originates from the latex of the rubber tree. Natural rubber is made from latex which is acquired by tapping into the bark layers of the rubber tree. Rubber trees belong to the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae) and live in warm, tropical areas. Once the latex has been “tapped” and is exposed to the air it begins to harden and become elastic, or “rubbery.” Rubber trees only survive in hot, humid climates near the equator and so the majority of latex is produced in the Southeast Asian countries of Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.
