Not really sure where you learned that...Uh, Solomon, thats wheelgun or revolver or such. A pistol is magazine fed.
Good on you for keeping the old workhorse in shape and getting it some holster time in real-life carry situations. That's what it was made for.Ready to raise an eyebrow? It is a K32 Masterpiece.
Hey, its that bad for me to needle Solomon about his dark side showing?Nemo, you spend too much time around other gun lovers, and you are using the politically-correct lingo of the "in the know" or "good old boys" club.
To normal people, a pistol is a handgun. It could be a semi-auto pistol, a machine pistol, a single-shot pistol, a single-action cowboy style pistol, or a revolver.
Pistol = handgun.
