A pistol is a type of handgun (a gun designed to be operated with one hand). A pistol is a handgun where the chamber is part of the barrel; unlike a revolver where the rounds are stored in a rotating chamber behind the barrel. Pistols in Call of Duty are usually secondary weapons. Examples include the USP .45 and the M1911.
