THESE AREN'T ALL PISTOLSEdit

This page and the category should be titled "Handguns", as some of these weapons are actually revolvers, such as the El Diablo. There is a large difference. Can someone help me modify the titles and categories?

'Pistol' is a synonym for 'handgun'. A revolver is as much a pistol as a semi-automatic weapon or even an automatic weapon of sufficiently small size (weapons like the MAC-10/-11 are sometimes referred to as 'machine pistols').

Going on from what Ben was talking about, a revolver is a pistol model, revolver was used as a break down from the term 'revolving pistol', this makes the supposed 'large difference' you're making it seem a deal of nothing more than nitpicking.
