Common Terms Associated with Gun Accessories

Firearms are used recreation, sport, hunting, or as a weapon for self-defense. The right accessories can increase accuracy and usability of many guns. Whether upgrading a rifle or a handgun, selecting the best accessories for the intended use is important. Understanding common terms associated with firearms can be useful for making these selections.

  • Holster – A means of carrying a handgun, such as a pistol or revolver. Holsters can be used for open carry, in which a firearm is visible, or concealed carry, in which the firearm is visually hidden under clothing. Many states require a special license for carrying concealed weapons.
  • Cartridge – The part of a pistol or file which feeds bullets into the barrel. High-capacity cartridges are available for many models. Many shooters also keep extra cartridges on hand to facilitate quick reloading.
  • Sights – The part of a gun used for aiming. Sights may be upgraded to more precise sights, or even models with laser or holograms for increased accuracy.
  • Scope – A specialized type of sight, allowing for more accurate aim over a much greater distance. Many hunters find scopes to be a valuable addition to rifles.
  • Grips – The pieces on the sides of a gun that are in contact with a shooter's hand. These may be upgraded to more stylish or comfortable styles.
  • Sling – A means of carrying rifles. They can also be used as additional support and stability when firing from some positions.
  • Frangible Ammunition – Bullets which are safe for use in unventilated indoor spaces. Some ranges require frangible ammunition.

    Many people own guns, from homeowners to hunters to law enforcement officials. Whether for personal protection, hunting, or public defense, guns and accessories are a large part of daily life for many. The proper accessories are needed to operate a firearm, such as bags, scopes, parts, mounts, and holsters. People looking for guns and accessories can head to a gunsmith. Gunsmiths sell guns and other weapons to customers, along with ammunition for rifles, machine guns, revolvers, and pistols. They can be found within specialty shops, in certain department stores, online, or on site at shooting ranges. In addition to product sales, gunsmiths can provide information on local safety laws and regulations regarding the use of firearms, shooting instruction tips, and cleaning and repair services. Customers must be careful when ordering guns and accessories online, as many states ban the sale of firearms over the internet. In order to purchase a gun, users must have a current firearm license. Likewise, gunsmiths must comply with government laws in order to operate a gun sale business. Guns are also sold at shooting ranges, where you can learn the basics or practice your existing skills through training and regular courses. Law enforcement professionals in particular must keep up with training on a regular basis as part of their jobs. Guns come in many different shapes, sizes, and calibers, which refer to the diameter of the barrel. Local dealers can hook you up with the ammo, scopes, mounts, spare parts, and cleaning products you need to operate your gun. They usually stock full product lines, including pads, blanks, chemicals, shells, and magazines.
