The first handheld gun was used by burning a wick through the "touch hole" in the barrel igniting the powder inside. A shooter uses one hand for firing and the other hand to ignite the barle. It was invented by the Yuan dynasty in 1271. The first handheld gun was a metal barrel and a wooden handle with a trigger to fire the gun.
