I think political correctness is one of the many things ruining this country.

Pistol always has, and always will refer to ALL handguns. Not just semi autos.

I have Colt Army Special 38 that belonged to my great grand father. I don't really shoot it much but I plan to buy a couple more 38s eventually.

According to Webster's 2013 online dictionary:

Pistol - n., 1. the smallest firearm used, intended to be fired from one hand,-now of many patterns, and bearing a great variety of names. See illustration of revolver.

(They included an illustration of a flintlock pistol with this entry.)

Revolver - n., 1. One who, or at which, revolves; specifically, a firearm (commonly a pistol) with several chambers or barrels so arranged as to revolve on an axis, and be discharged in succession by the same lock; a repeater.
