Great Instructional Video: The 3 Basic Handgun Types
I found this video to be quite interesting even though I am quite familiar with it’s content and no matter how old I get, I will always be open to learn, or re-learn something. But in-case, our old friend Hickok45 is back to share some of his extensive knowledge of firearms and this time, it’s regarding the 3 basic handgun types. Most of his videos are between 20 to 30 minutes long, but this one is relatively short (only 7 minutes).
According to Wikipedia:
A revolver is a repeating handgun that has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers and at least one barrel for firing. Revolvers might be regarded as a subset of pistols, or as an equal-ranking subset of handguns, distinct from pistols. Though the term “revolver” usually only refers to handguns, other firearms may also have a revolving chamber. There are two types of revolvers, single and double action (as you will see in the video below).
If you are not familiar with handguns, then I suggest that you take 7 minutes out of your day and watch the video below. And if you are thinking about buying your very first handgun, but cannot decide what type to get, then I definitely recommend that you watch this video.
