  Gun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A gun is a mechanical device that fires projectiles at high velocity, using a propellant such as gunpowder or compressed air.
The term "gun" is often used as a synonym to firearm, but in military usage the term refers only to artillery that fires projectiles at high velocity, such as anti-aircraft artillery, field guns, tank guns, anti-tank guns and naval guns.
Etymology: "gun" is found in Middle English as "gonne", and seems to come from the Germanic woman's name Gunhild or Gundhild = "war sword", applied to an early cannon.
