Handgun (Magnum)

From Discovered

Handguns are small guns lethal enough that a single shot will end a fight, but generally survivable unless vital organs are hit. Magnum handguns come in two flavors, larger-caliber revolvers and rifle-actions developed for sporting use. Some, like the Contender or the Savage Striker even adapt rifle calibers, but only allow for a single shot before reloading. Other examples include Dirty Harry's Smith and Wesson Model 29, once called the most powerful handgun in the world.
