New gun 1, or originally simply new gun, is a period-46 gun discovered by Bill Gosper in 1971[1]. It was the second basic gun to be found, the first being the Gosper glider gun. A number of other ways of constructing a gun from two twin bees shuttles have since been found; the smallest is shown below. See edge shooter for another example.
