  1. automatic pistol

    An automatic pistol is a type of handgun that automatically cycles its action to reload the next round into the chamber after a round is fired. This process continues each time the trigger is pulled until the ammunition supply is exhausted. It uses the energy from the fired cartridge to perform this action, hence the term 'automatic'. However, unlike fully automatic firearms, an automatic pistol only fires one round per trigger pull. This type of firearm is also sometimes referred to as a semi-automatic pistol.
