A pistol is a handgun, more specifically one with the chamber integral to its gun barrel, though in common usage the two terms are often used interchangeably. The English word was introduced in ca. 1570 – when early handguns were produced in Europe and is derived from the Middle French pistolet (ca. 1550), meaning a small gun or knife. In colloquial usage, the word "pistol" is often used to describe any type of handgun, inclusive of revolvers (which have a single barrel and a separate cylinder housing multiple chambers) and the pocket-sized derringers (which are often multi-barrelled).
The most common type of pistol used in the contemporary era is the semi-automatic pistol, while the older single-shot and manual repeating pistols are now rarely seen and used primarily for nostalgic hunting and historical reenactment, and the fully automatic machine pistols are uncommon in civilian usage due to generally poor recoil-controllability and strict laws and regulations governing their manufacture and sale.

I've seen pieces of this video before but not one that is so complete and the narration really helps. But maybe it's out there and I missed it. The footage, however, is incredible! It was taken from a Predator drone and is supposedly the first recorded action of a MoH recipient.
Recently moved to a new area and I am just now looking into membership at the nearest outdoor/Indoor range which is about 50 miles away. I will attend an orientation and get a membership as soon as I can. In addition to recreational shooting I would like to try one or more of the competitions...

So, my beloved and I are up in Eugene for the very wacky cocktail party, of sorts. Alas, this one was not nearly as delightful as the last one, though we had fun together. There will be other antics in the summer months, including trips farther north, so other adventures are on the way, but I...

Went to the S&W rebate website and couldn't find any reference to the amount. I swore it was $50...

They are smooth-bores, and are in very fine shooting condition.
38g = .497", and of course we...
Hope the link works. Have you guys seen this news? AZ DPS dumping their FN pistols. Looks like FN pistols are due for a major recall.
Bought my latest M&P40c and the trigger was awful. 7lbs and gritty.
Other M&P40c is 5.5lbs and less gritty.
Bought an Apex Tactical sear for it for $40 and just installed it. Brought it down to 4.5lbs from 7lbs, but it is still gritty. Much better.
With the older M&P40c slide on the newer...
I am starting to reload for my semi auto pistols. On the revolver ammo I seat the bullets then roll crimp them in two different steps.
On the 9mm, 10mm and 45acp do you guys seat and crimp in one step or seat and cripm two seperate steps?
If I do it in two steps I think I will buy the Lee...

Just for fun.
I’m realizing I really don’t like pistols much. I own far more long guns.
I think I need to start looking at this differently, as one can fit way more pistols in a safe lol.
So which way do you lean?
