A handgun is a simple firearm consisting of a metal barrel mounted on a wooden stock. The gunpowder charge is ignited by poking a length of burning cord, or match as it is called, into a small touch-hole. Some of the more advanced versions have levers and springs that hold the burning match and release the firing mechanism to fire the gun.
Handguns have a long range and hit very hard, making a mockery of even the thickest armour.
Maximum range: 24";
