It's an old Smith & Wesson revolver of some small caliber. I can't remember exactly, but it dates back to before 1900.

Try Google bro...

The term refers to a safety on the backstrap that requires the shooter to hold (squeeze) the grip before it can fire. It was first used on some old S&W revolvers, but the safety is now commonly found on 1911s and Springfield XDs.

Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, people drank a beverage called lemonade. There was a kitchen tool that squeezed the juice from them. When they made a revolver with a backstrap safety, someone noted the resemblance to the kitchen tool- hence the name. Have seen these made up thru .38 Special caliber. Here is a pic of a Lemon Squeezer-

S&W "Safety Hammerless" was the model in question.

I kinda don't like that feature on XDs.

Does anyone know what a lemon squeeze pistol is? Would you be able to show me a picture of one or point me to a picture? Also did they come in 45 caliber?

Not sure where you learned to spell but you need to read a dictionary. I suck at this stuff and your comment gave me a headache because it was written so badly. We encourage members here to use proper spelling and grammar. I can muddle through but many will not even give you the time of day when you are typing like what you did.

PS, Welcome to the board.
