From war to hunting to self-preservation, firearms have helped shape the world we live in — literally. In fact, it was the hit-and-run military tactic of guerrilla warfare during the Revolutionary War, using small arms and muskets, which helped to sway and eventually win American independence from the British. It was that same type of warfare, which nearly destroyed the same country 80 years later, that led to the end of the American Civil War.
