List of handgun brands that include the most reliable models available. The best handgun brands include those from major manufacturers including Walther, Browning Arms Company, Smith & Wesson and more.

A handgun is a firearm designed to be handheld, in either one or both hands. This characteristic differentiates handguns as a general class of firearms from long guns such as rifles and shotguns (which usually can be mounted against the shoulder). Major handgun subtypes are the revolver and pistol; other subtypes include derringers, single-shot pistols, semi-automatic pistols, pepperboxes, and machine pistols.

Although handgun use often includes bracing with a second hand, the essential distinguishing characteristic of a handgun is its facility for one-handed operation. So what are the most popular handgun brands? Users looking for a new handgun will want to research a variety of different brands to find the one that best suits their needs, based on features, weight, value, precision, design and quality.
