The word "gunsel" is a slang term that was commonly used in the early 20th century to refer to a young, inexperienced criminal who worked as a gunman or a lookout. However, due to its derogatory connotations and offensive origins, it is no longer widely used. Some synonyms for "gunsel" that are more appropriate and respectful include "armed criminal", "handgun operator", "hired gun", "hitman", "sharpshooter", "triggerman", or "gunman." These words are commonly used in modern crime fiction and journalism to describe individuals who are involved in violent criminal activities, but they do not carry the same negative connotations as "gunsel".
