In case of duplicate questions, the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Scott Brackenbary, 11, Pleasant Grove, Utah. Many people are interested in guns, and some even collect antique guns. But if you think guns -^-or > firearms, as they are call ed — are a modern invention this will surprise you. Firearms are about GOO years old! The.-first small firearms •'-appeared lat£ in the 14th century and were ijkiiown as hand cannon.-The Barrels were made ol copper or iron tubes, closed at the rear. Near, this- end (the butt) \yas drilled, a small "touch- hole" 'for setting fire to the powder inside.; ,Th'e,, butt ended in a hollow socket. ;Into'this fitted a straight' wooden stick' or stock. The mechanism t ; which ^ ea & gun is called the lock, The'next improvement in .the,gun had to do with this. About/1425 a forked piece of metal 'pivoted t6 one side of the stock'was added. It held a bit of smoldering wick or match. This piece could be work ed back and "'forth-to let the burning match down into the touch - hole and .so fire the charge. The next step in the evolution of" the gun (between 1475 and 1500) was to bend the stock downward. Then the user could hold it against his •shoulder to take up the .recoil or Kick, At the same time he could aim along the tube o.r, barrel, at his target, This gun was called a hackbut. .About the year 1515, the wheel lot* was Invented, which gave the gun a better tiling mechanism, A rough • edged -steel wheel was spun against a flintiiKe piece qf pyrites. This priced Ms in a pmajj "priming" pan which sat on top of the wheel, The pajj waj ayed with powder and a small hole connected with the inside of the barrel; The flintlock was a type of gun lha remained in use for a long tlm. —until about 1840. Changes'.anc improvements were made in it but it .still : struck sparks with flint and .steel. Since wir. don't have the space to go into the whole story of de velopment of guns, this will give you an idea of its early begin nings. Firearms for use by one hand also have an interesting history, quite different from the gun, FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Teacher: Birds, although small, are remarkable crea lures. -For example, what can little bird do that you can't do? 1 Jimmy: Take a bath in a sau cer.
