A Weapon. Long tube with feel pretty swirly lines up the inside of it, a chamber for a bullet at one end and a hole at the other.
Also, a useful guide for distinguishing between rifles and guns:
Also of note:
- (n.) This is my rifle. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.
- (n.) This is my spunk gun, with which I impale females/males (if a bhatti boy). It is distinguished from my rifle in several respects.
If I mistake it for my rifle, several things may occur.
- If I attempt to slay mine enemies with it, I will surely end up either dead or sucked off and buggered by a big camp gorilla-man with a blue oyster cult moustache who nevertheless prefers the company of men, and enjoys a bit of uphill gardening in his council allotment. In either case, I will end up in a bloodied mess on the floor, either dead or wishing I was.
- If I mistake my rifle for my gun and insert said rifle into my lover, unless she is Eskimo Nell, she won't be my lover for much longer, and will be a bloodied mess on the floor, and I will still require a root.
The way to distinguish your rifle from your gun is to follow this handy guide:
- Is it made largely of metal? Unless you are a bionic man, if YES, then you're holding a rifle.
- Is it longer than 12 inches? If yes, it's probably a rifle.
- Does it have to be stroked repeatedly or inserted into another person's body parts to make it discharge? If no, then it's probably a rifle.
- Does it posess a magazine, pistol grip, sight and working parts? If yes, it's probably a rifle.
- Does it go off half cocked? If yes, then it's probably a misfunctioning spunk gun.
- Is it fired from the shoulder or from between the hips?
- Is the discharge white, gelatinous and low-velocity, or hard and high-velocity?
- Would you consider causing it to discharge in your gonk bag?
You are now fully qualified to tell the difference between a rifle and a spunk gun.
