The gun that you see today, and have seen since your childhood may have been developed from a number of different items who all might have come from someone who invented firearms. Some of those might have been invented in the Middle East with raw materials like tallow and cork from fat animals that were hunted. Other raw materials that are used for today’s guns are lead and sulfur. But before you think too much on who invented firearms, let us first look at how these guns function and what we need them for.
All animals which live in the wild also have a natural capability to use tools; this is called grooming. In the case of these wild creatures, the best tool that they have for grooming is their teeth, sharp claws and the ability to bite powerfully. This natural ability in their mouths makes it easy to inflict painful and sometimes deadly bites on their enemies, which is the reason why most martial arts schools emphasize striking with the head. Striking with the head is considered by most martial adepts as one of the most efficient strikes and the most ideal form of weaponry when fighting or defending.
The martial arts also emphasize striking with the legs and the feet as a means to defend and attack quickly and effectively. In the martial arts world, these are two of the most important disciplines to focus on. A martial adept trains his body to move gracefully on all four limbs, and especially on his feet, because this is where his enemies are likely to strike. Thus, a martial artist who wants to be an efficient fighter needs to learn and perfect a number of martial arts drills such as joint locks, knee strikes in the hips and thighs.
Then, there is gunpowder. Although gunpowder came from volcanoes, most people today use it to create smokeless powder containers and even fireworks. However, this may also have been derived from the ancient Chinese who created what we now know as gun powder. Or maybe gunpowder was derived from the ancients through the use of charcoal.
After these four great inventions were created, gunpowder was no longer solely used for fireworks but also for many other purposes including war. War was generally fought between two armies who employed different methods to fight. For instance, the soldiers of one army would use fire-throwing tactics while the enemy used smokeless powder made from charcoal to build up their ranks. They would then fire at the opponents. In this way, they would build up enough powder to shoot high into the air and reach their goal. Thus, gunpowder became an excellent weapon that could be used to achieve goals and cover ground quickly.
Although gunpowder and black powder were the first types of ammunition used in battle, eventually other types of ammunition were developed. These new types of ammunition allowed gunsmiths to create stronger weapons that could hit bigger targets with greater force. However, gunpowder and black powder were not able to penetrate too deeply into the target’s armor. This is why bullet proof casings were invented. Bullet-proof casings are simply made with lead or copper to penetrate the metal armor of the enemy and send shrapnel flying. The difference in bullet-proof casings are that they do not contain gunpowder but gunpowder residue that will still damage anything it hits.
