NEW: "Politically Corrected" Glossary of Firearm Terms

International Gun Terms & Translations

About: Gun Glossary is written by Gunnery Network Director Marvin V. Stenhammar. Among other things, Marvin is a certified firearms instructor, a gun owner and firearms enthusiast, a political activist and an outdoors & adventure journalist.

Detail Boxes: Additional articles are contributed by subject matter experts and are presented in "detail box" articles. Several commercial firearms manufacturers and firearm accessory manufacturers have granted "limited use" permission for the use of their respective historical information and proprietary graphics that relate to their products and company information.

Please Note: This is not a dictionary.  The definitions and terms listed are for firearm, gun and shooting use only. Other definitions and usage exist for non gun and or non shooting use. The terms in Gun Glossary are in alphabetical order. We are working on a new hyper linked and cross referenced version. Check back soon.

New Content: This is a work in progress. New terms and graphics are added routinely, often daily. If you have a question about a gun term or product that is not listed, please let us know and we will do our best to define it and add it to "Gun Glossary".  If you find a mistake or a bad link please advise. We want to know and we do make mistakes. Please contact us via e-mail or telephone and thank you.
