Although my drill sergeant in Army basic training made it clear that "guns" are those big boomer things on Navy ships, I think in day-to-day conversation the word "gun" is generally understood. If further distinction is required, we have "shotguns," "rifles," and "pistols." (And to head off the protests from the self-styled purists, a revolver is a type of pistol.)
