Best Answer

A gun is a firearm whose barrel is not grooved (rifled), as with a shotgun, for instance. (A firearm whose barrel IS grooved is called a rifle. Examples include the common hunting rifle as well as the huge rifles on navy ships that can lob a shell as far as 25 miles.

A firearm is composed of a barrel, a triggering mechanism, a chamber, and an explosive cartridge and bullet.
