Firearms blogger Andrew Tuohy fired a few rounds from his M1911 pistol underwater to expand his bullets and snagged photos of the process. Here, we can witness the explosive power that erupts from the barrel of a gun as it pushes through liquid.
Flintlock pistols may have been super effective against single opponents because, as Boris the Bullet Dodger once said, "If it doesn't work you can always hit them with it." Against groups, however, they were comically useless—that is, until enterprising gunsmiths added some extra barrels.
Qaddafi: dictator, despot, dead, man of immense style. If you knew your reign of shitty terror was moribund, wouldn't you want to go out in style? And so he did, wielding this gold pistol to the very end.
With weird western Cowboys & Aliens coming out next week, we couldn't help but wonder: were there any real 19th century weapons that could compare to Daniel Craig's alien energy weapon? As always, never underestimate the awesome craziness of the 19th century.
Limited edition usually means there's a slim chance of getting your hands on the object in question, but in Glock's 25th anniversary pistol's case, you could very well be one of 2,500 people to own one.
Nerf guns are fun, but sometimes it's hard to use one without looking like you're at an 8 year old's birthday party. One toy gun tinkerer, however, made his own—and it's like something out of a Bond flick.
The essence of cheating is secrecy, so this DIY wooden Jenga pistol is going to be ineffective in that regard. However, the ability to blast blocks cleanly from the tower does make the game more exciting.
Is your little boy or girl afraid of the dark? Well those times are over, friend.
Thanks to the Second Amendment, even the elderly have the right to keep and bear arms. The problem is that many of the guns out there are a bit unwieldy for an older person to handle. However, the inventors of the Palm Pistol are planning to change all that with a weapon that is ideal for both the elderly and the…
Surely these pistol stilettos adorned by Madonna at her recent directorial debut can't be packing real guns. Then again, if we had to listen to that much pretentious bullshit coming from our own mouths at all times, we might need our personal escape plan at arm's reach, too.

It has been almost a year since we first heard that Novint would add a pistol grip accessory to their 3D Haptic Joystick—but the update has yet to hit the market. Nonetheless, Wired got a chance to play a few FPS games with the add-on and were blown away by the level of feedback and control, saying that it completely…
We've told you all about our favorite rayguns, blasters, flechette pistols, and laser guns before, but where did they all come from? Laser pistols are as identifiable with science fiction as rocketships, aliens, and robots, even though the first laser wasn't invented until 1960. So what spurred science fiction…
Getting an antenna into prime position is often a little challenging. Well, not anymore; checkout this awesome antenna launcher mod. Powered like a regular air pistol, it depends on pressurized gas to generate force, which then enables it to shoot a light line over a tree.
Police in both Orange County, California and Newburgh, New York are on the brink of field testing the PistolCam —a 1.5-ounce camera fitted below the barrel of sidearms. As soon as an officer draws the weapon, the PistolCam begins recording both video and audio. Naturally, this technology could prove extremely useful…
Bungie's just put out an update and given us real pictures of the Halo 3 Toys Covenant guns. The plasma rifle looks somewhat similar to the "real" thing (the gun in the game), but the plasma pistol looks really bleh. Real Covenant aliens wouldn't be caught dead with a turquoise gun. However, it will have a "super…
Shooting your TV is bad (haven't you seen that episode of The Simpsons?). Shooting it with a remote that's shaped like a gun is slightly better.
