There are many different type of guns, including assault rifles, sniper rifles, hand guns, RPG's, machine guns and artillery. Assault rifles are widely used in military's across the world. Assault rifles are most commonly used because they are light, accurate and reliable. Most reliable of assault rifles is the Russian AK-47. It is an automatic weapon with a gas propelled reload mechanism. This means that every time you pull the trip another bullet is loaded into the chamber. The American military refuses to use this weapon because of it iconic image as rebel or terrorist weapon. So the American Military uses the M16 and the M4. Both are fully and semi automatic rifles that are accurate at almost 400 yards. the M16 has been around since Vietnam and is still in use today. The M4 was brought into service in the early 1990's. Since then it is used by about 50% of American Servicemen today.
