List Rules Handguns with chambers that are integral with the barrel only

List of pistol brands that include the most reliable models available. The best pistol brands include those from major manufacturers including Beretta, Colt Defense, Detonics USA and more.

When distinguished as a subset of handguns, a pistol is a handgun with a chamber that is integral with the barrel, such as a pepperbox revolver - as opposed to a standard (single-barrel) revolver, wherein the chamber is separate from the barrel as a revolving cylinder. The most common types of pistols are the single shot, revolving chamber and semi-automatic. Other types include: multi-barreled, pepperbox, harmonica pistol, semi-automatic, machine pistol and target shooting.
