A weapon is any tool or object that is used to increase the range and power of a human. From the earliest traces of mankind up to our modern civilization, weapons have been a facet of human development. Making up for the human bodyÃ¢â�¬â�¢s lack of natural weapons, such as claws, weapons allow the bearer to be more lethal. The first known weapons included flint knives, hand axes and darts from the Stone Age. Evolving weapons included slings, spears, pikes, arrows, and swords. Emerging in the 16th century, firearms were qualitatively different from earlier weapons because they stored energy in a combustible propellant, rather than in a weight or spring. There is a vast array of weaponry available to collectors today.
