About This Quiz

We've decided that certain historical guns are synonymous with personality. Based on this theory, we've created a quiz that will identify you as one of four historical guns based on your answers to the following 30 questions. Whether it's just for fun or if you are as on board with our theory as we are, take this quiz to find out which historical gun your personality most resembles.

There are just certain guns that almost everyone can recognize with either an image, a description, or by name. Historical guns tend to be even more recognizable. Historical guns have a certain amount of pizzazz that make them easy prey for a bit of anthropomorphism (that's assigning human traits, emotions, and characteristics to non-human objects - there, saved you a trip to dictionary.com). And, the four guns we've included in this quiz - the Winchester rifle, Tommy Gun, Peacemaker and Kentucky long rifle - are no exception. In case you aren't quite familiar with what a Peacemaker is, it's "the gun that won the West." A Peacemaker is a Colt-45, a single-action revolver that holds six cartridges. It's been in production since 1873, and it's considered one of the most popular guns of all time.
