Who invented the first gun? A brief history of firearms.

Weaponry and humans have a long history. Weapons were used as far back as 400,000 BC. Throughout human history, they have been used for hunting, for sport, and for both law enforcement and criminal activities.

Weapons have created entertainment, envied collections, and self-defense strategies for as long as there has been written history. Weapons have evolved in purpose and materials throughout time to suit the users’ needs and take advantage of available technologies.
