What is a rifle used for?

Rifles are used extensively in warfare, law enforcement, hunting and shooting sports. The term was originally rifled gun, with the verb “rifle” referring to the early modern machining process of creating groovings with cutting tools.

What is the difference between a rifle and a shotgun?

A rifle fires a single bullet in one shot, while a shotgun fires multiple small pellets inside a shell. This makes the rifle good for long-distance use and a shotgun good for self-defense and short-range use.
