What Type of Gun Are You?
by Teresa

How well do you know guns? Ever wondered what kind of weapon you would be.... if you were a gun, that is? Take this quiz to find out.

Sure, you've probably imagined yourself as a Disney character, and maybe even a jungle animal, but have you ever wondered what kind of gun you most resemble? We've got the scoop in this quiz.

Guns as we know them (or sort of like we know them) have been around for more than one thousand years. And although there are literally a ton of different kinds of guns, there are three main types: pistols, shotguns, and rifles. Within these categories, there are sniper rifles, submachine guns, assault rifles, marksman rifles, carbines, machine guns, flamethrowers (is this really a gun?), anti-tank rifles, grenade launchers (gee, wonder what kind of personality you have to have to rank as one of these!), Honey Badgers (not quite as warm and fuzzy as you might think), hunting rifles, revolvers, and more. Since the beginning of recorded firearms, long ago in China, we have developed guns to meet just about every need.

Are you interested in finding out what gun you most resemble? Let's get started with this quiz to find out.
