During the 19th century, the Second World War developed in Europe and all military equipment was needed. The soldiers were hungry for new types of arms since the war was still fresh. The Japanese had recently developed a new type of gun, but it was not yet ready for mass production. So, Japan stepped forward to help develop the new gun, which was adopted by Germany as the bullet proof gun. In this article, we will look at how firearms development in Japan was successful.
At first, Japan did not have any problem making guns but it took some time to perfect them. But in 1894, a bullet proof pistol was successfully made and after a few modifications, the Japanese were well on their way to becoming an important weapon in world war one. As you may notice, Japan never produced any real bullets proof guns until after the war. This may seem strange because in most countries, if a war has been going on for a while, many firearms would be made and used. But in Japan, there was a big problem with the rifles and the bullets were not very effective.
So, what happened was that, after trench warfare was over and soldiers were sent home, the military abandoned the idea of improving the rifle. Instead, they went back to the standard issue repeating rifles and they still used them. After the war was over, they still continued to use rifles as they were still popular and effective. When the American soldiers came back to Japan, they found that the Japanese used rifles even though they were bullet proof. So, after the war was over, they decided to come up with new rifles that were bullet proof as well.
Another part of the reason why the introduction of European firearms in Japan was successful is that Japan was one of the last places in the world to have firearms. After the conclusion of the war, Japan was full of World War II veterans. Many of these veterans had no use for guns and so they took up hunting instead. They would shoot at targets from their old war trenches, which was not very successful because the bullets fly very far and in very little time.
After the rifles were tried out and did not work, the military decided to try hand weapons as well as ammunition for their soldiers. Hand guns were soon adopted by the Japanese and it became quite popular. Many of the natives used this type of gun and because they were easy to carry, they could also be used for other purposes as well as for defense. Soon, gun manufacturers took notice of this and began to produce these guns in Japan.
Today, there are only a handful of select nations in the world that still use firearms as their main form of weaponry. Japan is one of those few remaining nations and they are very proud of it. It’s only unfortunate that Europe didn’t learn how to use their guns on their own until the Second World War. Although Europe did get lucky and developed bullet proof steel and pistol magazines and other things to help defend themselves, they were a lot less prepared for modern-day wars and have not advanced their weaponry since then.
