As the fairy lights change colour, so do the ice soldiers with their automatic rifles.
a shoulder firearm with a long barrel and a rifled bore
A rifle is a long, powerful gun that is fired from the shoulder. A soldier is most often armed with a rifle.
Some hunters use rifles, which fire single bullets rather than the small pellets, or shot, that shotguns fire. A rifle can do more damage and is therefore often used in the military. The name comes from the shape of the barrel, which is grooved — or rifled, from the Old French word rifler, "to scratch or groove." Another meaning of rifle comes from the same root but means "to search through things in a hurried way."
一些猎人使用步枪，它发射单发子弹而不是散弹枪发射的小弹丸或子弹。步枪可以造成更大的伤害，因此经常在军队中使用。这个名字来自于枪管的形状，它是有槽的——或有膛线的，来自古法语单词 rifler，“划痕或开槽”。 rifle 的另一个含义来自同一个词根，但意思是“以匆忙的方式搜索事物”。

rifle (n.)"portable firearm having a barrel or barrels with a spirally grooved bore," by 1775; the word was used earlier of the grooves themselves (1751), and is a noun use from rifled pistol, 1680s, from the verb rifle meaning "to cut spiral grooves in" (a gun barrel); see rifle (v.2).The spirals impart rotation to the projectile, making its flight more accurate. Rifles "troops armed with rifles," sometimes as part of a unit name, is by 1843. Rifle-range is from 1850 as "distance a rifle-ball will carry" (also, and earlier rifle-shot, 1803); the meaning "place for rifle shooting" is by 1862. Rifle-ball is by 1884; the word continued in use after cylindrical bullets with conical heads replaced round ones.Related entries & more
