The '''Pistol''' is a [[weapon]] present in all ''[[Grand Theft Auto]]'' games, being the most basic firearm in the series.

The pistol is mainly used at the start of the game, or later when the player has run out of ammunition for their better firearms. It is a reliable backup weapon, but not one that should be used as a primary, as it is outclassed by many other weapons in damage, fire rate, and overall effectiveness.

=== Design ===
In GTA 1 and GTA London, the pistol closely resembles the AMT Automag II by the HUD Image, Although the GTA 1 Icon resembles the Soviet Tokarev TT-33. In GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, the pistol resembles a Colt M1911. The pistol's magazine capacity ranges from 12 rounds (in III) to 17 rounds (Vice City onwards). All of this is despite the fact that the Colt M1911 isn't commonly chambered in 9mm and, even if it was, it still possesses a [http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Single-column-magazine single-stack] magazine design, therefore making it impossible to fit more than 7 rounds in the magazine without redesigning the weapon or using an extended magazine that extends beyond the bottom of the grip. However, the Browning Hi-Power is chambered in 9mm and holds 13 rounds, thus making it plausible that the GTA III version of the pistol is modelled after the Hi-Power, but making it impossible in Vice City Stories. In the introduction cutscene of San Andreas, where all three members of [[C.R.A.S.H.]] arrest [[Carl Johnson]], [[Jimmy Hernandez]] and [[Eddie Pulaski]] are holding Glock 17 pistols, instead of the normal Colt M1911 pistols like the ones in gameplay. Given the fact that the in-game pistol's magazine capacity (17 rounds) is incorrect for a Colt M1911 but correct for a Glock 17, and the fact that the Glock really is a 9mm pistol, it may be that the developers originally intended the player to use the model seen in the cutscenes, but this feature was left out for some reason. The Glock 17 can be used in-game by switching and swapping the M1911 pistol's model/texture with that  of the Glock's.

The pistol frequently varies in design throughout the series, taking the form of many popular handguns.

In GTA 1 and GTA London, the Pistol closely resembles the AMT Automag II by the [[HUD]] image, although the GTA 1 Icon resembles the Soviet Tokarev TT-33. In GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, the pistol is based on the Colt M1911A1, sunce it's design is identical to the M1911A1 pistol however throughout time fans have discussed on whether it's actually a Browning Hi-Power and not an M1911A1, since the in the game the pistol is refenced as a 9mm handgun just like the Browning Hi-Power and the browning Hi-Power's design is based on the one of the M1911A1 and since the graphics and textures at the time weren't very detailed some hink that the pistol in the game is a Browning Hi-Power. However, if one manages to get a hold of the 3D model of the firearm and examines it closely with both a picture of a M1911A1 and the picture of a Browning Hi-Power next to it, it's very clear that's it's design is the one of a M1911A1 even though the gun fires 9mm bullets like a Browning Hi-Power, this is just probably a mistake on the behalf of Rockstar. In the introduction cutscene of San Andreas, where all three members of [[C.R.A.S.H.]] arrest [[Carl Johnson]], [[Jimmy Hernandez]] and [[Eddie Pulaski]] are holding Glock 17 Pistols, instead of the normal Hi-power Pistols like the ones in gameplay. Given the fact that the in-game Pistol's magazine capacity (17 rounds) is incorrect for a Browning Hi-Power but correct for a Glock 17, it may be that the developers originally intended the player to use the model seen in the cutscenes, but this feature was left out for some reason. The Glock 17 can be used in-game by switching and swapping the M1911A1 pistol's model/texture with that of the Glock's.

In GTA Liberty City Stories, the Pistol resembles the [[wp:Glock 17|Glock 17]], being one of the most accurately depicted Pistols in a 3D-era GTA game. In GTA Vice City Stories, the Pistol is based on a [[wp:Beretta M9|Beretta M9]], the military version of the Beretta 92. The reason for this is likely to do with the fact that the M9 is the standard issue sidearm for the US military, and the game starts off with the protagonist [[Victor Vance]] serving in the army. However, the game is set in 1984'';'' the M9 replaced the Colt M1911 as the standard US army sidearm in 1985. Also, the magazine capacity of 17 rounds is slightly larger than the Beretta's 15.
   
In GTA Liberty City Stories, the pistol resembles the Glock 17, being one of the most accurately depicted pistols in a GTA game. In GTA Vice City Stories, the pistol resembles a Beretta 92. In reality, the Beretta can carry only 15 rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber, making it impossible to carry 17 bullets as shown in game, since the magazine size is normal.
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the Pistol is an incorrectly modeled Glock 17. "22" is inscribed on the slide, albeit inaccurately. It is unknown what version of the Glock Rockstar intended for this Pistol, as the in-game model has the exterior of a Glock 22, but has the caliber, magazine capacity and traits of a Glock 17. The sights on the model are also incorrect; the gun's front sight is a duplicate of the twin-post rear sight.

In [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], the Pistol's HUD icon and artwork including the weapon suggests that it is designed as a Browning Hi-Power Practical.

In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the pistol resembles a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taurus_PT92 Taurus PT92AF] (which is based on the Beretta 92 seen in Vice City Stories). Said weapon's slide seems to be modified to resemble a Colt M1911 in some aspects.

In its original form in ''Grand Theft Auto'' and ''Grand Theft Auto 2'', the pistol is one of the least effective firearms, firing only one bullet every second or so, at a rate slower than a [[Machine Gun|machine gun]].

From ''Grand Theft Auto III'' onwards, the 9mm pistol is given generally poor stopping power, average accuracy, and a fairly short range. In [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]] the weapon is significantly more effective than it's previous iterations, having higher range, damage, and accuracy. Coupled with a one shot headshot capability, it is much more effective as a weapon.

In GTA IV, the pistol performs well. Unlike previous GTA games, in which the Pistol is soon usurped by other weapons, the pistol in GTA IV can be used effectively throughout the entire game. By using cover strategically, being patient, and making your shots count, it is possible to complete most missions in GTA IV and its episodes with just a pistol. It can be fired from cars, and its availability, ammo capacity, and higher fire rate make it more desirable for drive-bys and chases than the [http://gta.wikia.com/Combat_Pistol Combat Pistol]. However, submachine guns are always a better option than pistols if available, mainly because of their fully automatic capability, fire rate, and in some cases, higher damage.

===Availibility===
+
In Grand Theft Auto V, the Pistol performs similarly to the one in GTA IV, but the power, range, and low recoil of the weapon make it significantly more useful despite the pistol hold five less bullets per magazine. This time it comes with a magazine carrying 12 bullets, though it can be upgraded to 16 bullets with the "Extended Clip". As an addition, the rate of fire can be increased by repeatedly tapping the fire button instead of holding it down. Other attachments include a [[Suppressor]], which lowers damage and range but allows for more quiet kills, and a flashlight, which can be turned on/off.
This pistol can be purchased at every gun store across Liberty City, as well as found in various locations listed below, LCPD Police Officers carry this pistol as their standard service weapon and therefore the player can easily gain control of one if they haven't yet unlocked any gun stores or are in need of more ammunition.

―GTA V description on Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Pistol is a weapon present in all Grand Theft Auto games, being the most basic firearm in the series.

Description Edit

The Pistol is mainly used at the start of the game as the first weapon the player obtains, or later when the player has run out of ammunition for other firearms. It is a reliable backup weapon, but not one that should be used as a primary, as it is outclassed by many other weapons in damage, fire rate, and overall effectiveness.

Design Edit

The pistol frequently varies in design throughout the series, taking the form of many popular handguns.

In GTA 1 and GTA London, the Pistol closely resembles the AMT Automag II by the HUD image, although the GTA 1 Icon resembles the Soviet Tokarev TT-33. In GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, the pistol is based on the Colt M1911A1, sunce it's design is identical to the M1911A1 pistol however throughout time fans have discussed on whether it's actually a Browning Hi-Power and not an M1911A1, since the in the game the pistol is refenced as a 9mm handgun just like the Browning Hi-Power and the browning Hi-Power's design is based on the one of the M1911A1 and since the graphics and textures at the time weren't very detailed some hink that the pistol in the game is a Browning Hi-Power. However, if one manages to get a hold of the 3D model of the firearm and examines it closely with both a picture of a M1911A1 and the picture of a Browning Hi-Power next to it, it's very clear that's it's design is the one of a M1911A1 even though the gun fires 9mm bullets like a Browning Hi-Power, this is just probably a mistake on the behalf of Rockstar. In the introduction cutscene of San Andreas, where all three members of C.R.A.S.H. arrest Carl Johnson, Jimmy Hernandez and Eddie Pulaski are holding Glock 17 Pistols, instead of the normal Hi-power Pistols like the ones in gameplay. Given the fact that the in-game Pistol's magazine capacity (17 rounds) is incorrect for a Browning Hi-Power but correct for a Glock 17, it may be that the developers originally intended the player to use the model seen in the cutscenes, but this feature was left out for some reason. The Glock 17 can be used in-game by switching and swapping the M1911A1 pistol's model/texture with that of the Glock's.

In GTA Liberty City Stories, the Pistol resembles the Glock 17, being one of the most accurately depicted Pistols in a 3D-era GTA game. In GTA Vice City Stories, the Pistol is based on a Beretta M9, the military version of the Beretta 92. The reason for this is likely to do with the fact that the M9 is the standard issue sidearm for the US military, and the game starts off with the protagonist Victor Vance serving in the army. However, the game is set in 1984; the M9 replaced the Colt M1911 as the standard US army sidearm in 1985. Also, the magazine capacity of 17 rounds is slightly larger than the Beretta's 15.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Pistol is an incorrectly modeled Glock 17. "22" is inscribed on the slide, albeit inaccurately. It is unknown what version of the Glock Rockstar intended for this Pistol, as the in-game model has the exterior of a Glock 22, but has the caliber, magazine capacity and traits of a Glock 17. The sights on the model are also incorrect; the gun's front sight is a duplicate of the twin-post rear sight.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the Pistol's HUD icon and artwork including the weapon suggests that it is designed as a Browning Hi-Power Practical.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the pistol resembles a Taurus PT92AF (which is based on the Beretta 92 seen in Vice City Stories). Said weapon's slide seems to be modified to resemble a Colt M1911 in some aspects.

PerformanceEdit

In its original form in Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto 2, the pistol is one of the least effective firearms, firing only one bullet every second or so, at a rate slower than a machine gun.

From Grand Theft Auto III onwards, the 9mm Pistol is given generally poor stopping power, average accuracy, and a fairly short range. In GTA San Andreas the weapon is significantly more effective than it's previous iterations, having higher range, damage, and accuracy. Coupled with a one shot headshot capability, it is much more effective as a weapon.

In Grand Theft Auto IV  the Pistol performs well. Unlike previous GTA games, in which the Pistol is soon usurped by other weapons, the Pistol in GTA IV can be used effectively throughout the entire game. By using cover strategically, being patient, and making your shots count, it is possible to complete most missions in GTA IV and its episodes with just a Pistol. It can be fired from cars, and its availability, ammo capacity, and higher fire rate make it more desirable for drive-bys and chases than the Combat Pistol. However, submachine guns are always a better option than pistols if available, mainly because of their fully automatic capability, fire rate, and in some cases, higher damage.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Pistol performs similarly to the one in GTA IV, but the power, range, and low recoil of the weapon make it significantly more useful despite the pistol hold five less bullets per magazine. This time it comes with a magazine carrying 12 bullets, though it can be upgraded to 16 bullets with the "Extended Clip". As an addition, the rate of fire can be increased by repeatedly tapping the fire button instead of holding it down. Other attachments include a Suppressor, which lowers damage and range but allows for more quiet kills, and a flashlight, which can be turned on/off.

AvailabilityEdit

This Pistol can be purchased at every gun store across Liberty City/ Vice City/ San Andreas. As well as being found in the various locations listed below, all Police Officers carry this Pistol as their standard service weapon and therefore the player can easily gain control of one if they haven't yet unlocked any gun stores or are in need of more ammunition.
