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.

As there were no smileys I refer you to post #12, it saved my life.

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.
