How a Handgun Works

Guns use the explosion of gunpowder or other explosive to produce gas which is heated and expands rapidly to force a bullet or shell to move at high speed down a barrel. When you pull the trigger on a handgun for example the hammer snaps forward and a pin strikes the primer. This creates a spark, which ignites the gunpowder, and the explosion propels the bullet out of the gun.
