Do you like guns and you are thinking of buying a firearm for hunting, but you don’t know which one to choose? This is something that usually happens the first time you are looking to buy a gun, so we will show you everything related to this world to help you decide on the one that best suits your tastes and needs. Today there is a wide variety of weapons, which have been improving over the years thanks to the technological development that has occurred in this area.
What types of firearms are there?
There are several types of firearms. Firearms are classified according to their use and destination. Before buying a firearm it is necessary that you know this categorization:
Handguns: pistols and revolvers.
Long guns: rifles, carbines and shotguns.
In this group are short firearms such as revolvers and pistols, which are weapons designed to be carried and intended to be fired at close range.
Pistols are generally semi-automatic, short-barreled firearms that use removable magazines. Pistols are often used as a defense weapon by law enforcement. However, they are not only used for defense purposes, as there are shooters who practice sport shooting. In Olympic shooting, for example, single-shot pistols can be found.
The revolver is a short weapon characterized by its rotating drum where it stores the cartridges (bullets). Its main use is as a defense weapon. However, there are also revolvers for competitive shooting in the centerfire category.
These are guns that have a long barrel and are used for different purposes: the most common use is for big game hunting (rifled guns) and small game hunting with smoothbore shotguns. In this group there are also firearms used for sport shooting, whose .22lr caliber allows one or more semi-automatic and rimfire shots. For shooting in long distance competitions such as F-Class or PRS, centerfire cartridges are used. There are other long fire weapons, such as war weapons (submachine guns and assault rifles), which are not available to a civilian.
Rifles are long-barreled weapons whose use is mainly focused on hunting, there being a great variety of rifles with different mechanisms that are better adapted to certain circumstances. The main difference between a rifle and another long gun such as a shotgun is that the rifle barrel is rifled and has a longer range.
.22 LR carbines
The carbines that use the .22 LR caliber are smaller than the big game rifles, as well as their ammunition. Hunting with this caliber is permitted in the United States, but its accuracy and low recoil make it ideal for sport shooting.
The shotgun is a long gun that enjoys great popularity among local hunters, so it has become one of the main weapons for small game hunting. Unlike rifles, which are rifled, shotguns have a smooth bore, so their projectile has a shorter range and they are usually used with buckshot cartridges.
