A handgun is a small gun that can be handheld for either self defense, target practice and some game hunting. Handguns come in different varieties. Below is a breakdown of different handgun styles:
- Single shot – these guns shoot one shot and are used for target shooting
- Revolvers – revolvers have a chamber for a set number of bullets, once fired a hammer must be triggered to load the next bullet
- Semi Automatic – these guns use recoil energy to load the next bullet automatically, without the handler having to use a hammer like a revolver
