Technical questions

As with many topics involving firearms, there is no clear-cut answer to what makes a pistol a pistol. Some view pistols as synonymous with handguns. Others make the distinction that pistols have one chamber that is integral with the barrel in order to distinguish it from revolvers, which have multiple, rotating cylinders. Where do you stand?

Single-shot pistols – handguns loaded with a lead ball and fired by a flint striker – were the precursors to modern, semi-automatic handguns. The single-shot varieties were loaded with single lead balls and fired by a flint striker. The technology behind single-shot pistols has improved significantly over time and models are still available today. Semiautomatic pistols take technology to the next step, making use of the gun’s firing energy to reload for the next shot and rely on a reloadable magazine to supply the rounds.
