An automatic rifle created by Mikhail Kalashnikov, originally implemented and designated AK-47, the rifle design was closely based on the Nazi Strumgewhr-44 (STG-44) (English: Assult Rifle, 1944). Originally chambered in 7.62x39 Soviet, the caliber was changed in 1974 to a smaller, higher velocity caliber because the Russian military felt that it would be better suited against the .223 Caliber used by the United States. AK is also often used to refer to an assult rifle, and often mistake with Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30 rifles by stupid cops. The rifle often sports a long, banana clip, but can also accomodate small magazines or drum magazines.
"Make way for tha led spray of my A-K or this will be your last day"
A firearm chambered in 9mm. Properly used, it refers to the 9x19mm cartridge, aslo known as 9mm Parabelum or 9mm Luger. Though several other calibers are 9mm in diameter, they should not correctly be refered to as "nines".
9x17 AKA 9K AKA 9mm Kurtz AKA 9mm short is properly refered to in ghetto slang as a .380, referring to .380ACP the proper American nomenclature.
9x18 AKA 9mm Makarov is not commonly found in North America, and is therefore unavailable to most criminals.
9x21, is a more powerful variation of the 9x19 cartridge, and the two are not compatible in autopistols.
9x23, is a powerful cartridge, but is seldom found in cheap pistols, and therefore out of reach for most criminals.

Refers to two firearm calibers.
.357 Magnum, a popular revolver caliber. Effective within 1100 yards, deadly beyond that.

Commonly used to refer to the Armalite AR-15, which was later developed into the M-16. Chambered in .223 caliber, the rifle proves to be effective though somewhat ineffective. Today, a variety of manufacturers produce ARs in a variety of calibers.
A name that refers to two popular firearms calibers.
.38 Special is found in many revolvers, and is a truncated version of the .357 Magnum. .38 Special rounds may be discharged from a revolver chambered for .357 Magnum.
.38 Super is an autopistol caliber. It is more powerful than 9x19, but less powerful than .40SW or .357SIG. Made famous by gangsters in the thirties, the .38 Super was capable of penetrating bullet proof vests- something the .45ACP could not. Today, the round can be stopped by most vests. It is relatively uncommon caliber. Several gun manufacturers produce nickel-plated 1911-style guns to discharge this round.
