The Boom Stick is the high-tech (or magical) variant of the Simple Staff. This is a gun shaped like a staff, that fires projectiles (or more often, energy blasts). If of the magical variety, it could also be a "focus" for the user's magic power, making it easier to fire magic bolts, though the user is still perfectly capable of using just his hands. Often the idea is that they give a certain regal flair to their users, and is handy to use in melee if needed. Of course, such weapons would be unwieldy and hard to aim. What differentiates the Boom Stick from the MagicWand is that the Boom Stick is not necessarily magical in nature, and even if it is, it has little other use in performing magic than for shooting people. If it is capable of regular spells that instead is a MagicStaff.

Added DiffLines:
* To be quite fair, it's hard to describe the staff that ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''[='=]s Sun Wukong wields. It's a staff that disconnects and becomes a pair of nunchucks that are also ''shotguns''.

False. This is a common belief, but gonne's don't have enough recoil to warrant it. The rings were likely for other purposes, such as making the canon a reasonable alternative during close hand-to-hand combat. Also added earliest found date.
* TruthInTelevision, the ancestor of the modern gun was the hand cannon (or hand gonne) which was basically a tiny cannon affixed to the end of a staff. It usually featured a hook that you could use to hook onto whatever you were hiding behind; a necessity, thanks to the recoil.

* Elie, from ''RaveMaster'' uses a weapon like this. When handed a staff she starts using it as if it's one of these too.
