strip gun

1. n. [Perforating]
An exposed gun system used primarily in wireline operations. This gun system has shaped charges that are housed in individual pressure-tight capsules mounted on a metal strip, which is lowered into the well. Each pressure-tight capsule, along with the entire string, is thus exposed to well fluids.
Synonyms: capsule gun
