One thing that I find that most people don't realize is the difference in rifles. Rifles got there name from the long barrel that contained riffling on the inside of the barrel. Rifling is essentially cutting spiraled groves on the inside of the barrel. This enables the bullet to spin as it leaves the barrel. This increased the accuracy of the bullet. Some may ask, why does spinning of a bullet increase accuracy? it is comparable to a quarterback throwing a football in a spiral pass versus just lobbing the ball without any spin.
There are basically 3 types of rifles:
1. Single Shot
3. Full Automatic
