Weapons that fire projectiles at high velocity; a kinetic energy weapon that fires either a single or multiple projectiles propelled at high velocity by the gases produced by action of the rapid confined burning of a propellant. This process of rapid burning is technically known as deflagration. In older firearms, this propellant was typically blackpowder, but modern firearms use smokeless powder or other propellants.
