Gunpowder hasn't been used in military small arms for almost a century. Nitrocellulose and it's chemical relatives replaced it long ago.

the gas used in guns is the gas produced from the propellant which is usually Cordite, which consists of guncotton, nitroglycerin and some vaseline ( cordite MD has 65% guncotton, 30% nitroglycerin and 5% vaseline) so it would be nitrogen, I think.

If you are a soldier in the British army, you would already know this. Clearly you are not a soldier in the British army. Thusly we see the logical progression from A to B. All that is left is question C, namely: Why do you want to know?, and bonus question D: Why did you not google it?

Firstly, I'm female. Secondly, please do not curse me. It does not make me want to help you at all. Thirdly, please use google. www.google.com Modern weapons most certainly do use gas. Fourthly, why do you react with anger when presented with a legitimate question?

I'm fairly certain that chemical warfare has been banned in most countries. But, I suppose the answer would be some sort of nerve gas.

agreed confusing question do you mean poison gas? or the gas created from the combustion of gun powder? or the gas created from the excessive eating of beans while in the military?
