This is why it is imperative to understand how the gun works in order to use it safely and “do not shoot the gun unless you know you have the proper ammunition” (NRA 7). When ejecting the ammunition, pull back the action and let the magazine fall out of the gun. The action is the mechanism that chambers the bullet when pulled back and the magazine is the storage for bullets not being used. To aim the gun, line up the sight with the target and fire. The sight is a device located on top of the gun barrel which assists with aiming a gun. Beginners may have a hard time hitting their target accurately, but this comes with time and patience.

The long reload time as well as a short effective range caused armies to look for better solutions to make their soldiers more effective on the battlefield. One of the first improvements made to the musket was a rifled barrel. A rifled barrel consists of spiraled groves down the inner barrel that gave bullets a spin as they exited the barrel.
