I think we should place this in an article using the spelling "gun". Maybe Gun (staff)?

Yes, absolutely. Fire Star 21:44, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)


A picture better showing the gun itself would probably be good to have.


isn't it pronounced gwen? who calls it 'goon'?

Well, it sort of sounds like "gwoon" (short sound) to me...

Currently, the list of "gun" types is as follows:

This list seems rather flawed to me, in that many of these are forms (styles) of staff use, not different kinds of staves. For example, the Mad Demon Staff, Five Tigers Herd Goats Staff, and Taiji Staff are just methods (forms) of using the staff (gun); The Monkey Staff is borderline as this is also a method (form), but this staff is often made of metal instead of wood; some weapons listed as not "gun" at all, however, such as the Bagua Seven Star Rod (which is not "gun" and is made of a specific type of bamboo) or the flail (which is not a staff/gun at all).
