How to use "Carbine" in context?

Carbine is a type of firearm, typically a rifle, that uses cartridge-fired projectiles. The word carbine originated from the French word carabine, meaning "small cannon." Carbines are typically less than 45 inches (1.14 m) in length and use smaller-caliber bullets than rifles. They are lightweight and easy to transport, making them a popular choice for military and law enforcement personnel.
