The idiomatic way we express this is to say a rifle/gun goes "bang".

Here are some other examples:

  • a rooster goes "cock-a-doodle-doo"
  • a canon/explosion goes "boom"
  • IMO:

    a crack is without echo, is a short rapping sound, valid esp for automatic rifles, as the sound of wood breaking

    a bang shows more echo and is usually related to only one shot
