Flare Gun History

Flare guns are largely attributed to Edward Wilson Very, which is why the most common type of flare gun is still called a Very. Very was an American naval officer who designed a single-shot breech-loading snub-nosed pistol to fire flares (also designed by him and known as Very flares). The Very pistol was widely used during World War II and are still made today but with some updates, such as models with longer barrels that can accommodate parachute flares.

Modern flare guns are frequently made of plastic, usually brightly colored so they can be easily found in your emergency kit during a crisis. Flare guns are not designed to be used as weapons but as distress signal devices. However there are some stories of flare guns being used as weapons, particularly during WWII or the Korean War, usually as a weapon of last resort when no other working weapon was at hand or ready to fire.
