Pistols - the most popular models
Like revolvers,pistols are used in hunting, especially for trapping and tracking. However, they are also very popular with sport shooters and authorities. These are the most searched models on Gunfinder:
The Glock 17 is one of the most popular pistols among hunters as well as sport shooters. The reason for this is the affordable price, reliability, as well as the lightness of the weapon, which is largely made of plastic. This makes the weapon, which is also very popular with authorities and special forces worldwide, very modular and can be adapted to your own needs with many accessoriesena.
A popular and reliable pistol, also in both hunting and tactical applications. Compared to the Glock 17, the weapon is slightly heavier, but according to many shooters, it is also more accurate.
Sig Sauer P226
The CZ 75 has been manufactured since 1975 and is a true classic. The pistol, which is made almost entirely of steel, is a bit heavy for its size. Many hunters and sport shooters find the external hammer to be a positive feature, as the gun is not cocked via the trigger and can also be decocked loaded.

The Colt 1911 pistol is virtually the mother of all pistols. From 1911 to 1985, the gun was the ordnance weapon of the American armed forces - that is 74 years! The weapon is popular less for its precision than for its reliability. Since it usually comes in the extremely powerful pistol caliber .45 ACP (11.43 × 23 mm), it is ideal for hunters as a catch shot weapon.
The Beretta 92 is prized by many shooters worldwide- the weapon is also reproduced under license by Taurus, among others. However, the all-steel weapon is somewhat large and heavy.
The Walther PKK is one of the most popular and sought-after pistols on the used gun market, and not just because of its use in the James Bond franchise. The handy, reliably designed gun was manufactured in .22 lfb, 6.35 Browning, 7.65mm Browning, and 9mm short calibers, though not in today's predominant 9x19 caliber. Although it is a true classic, the weapon has limited suitability as a trap gun because it carries little stopping power.
An equally iconic weapon as the Walther PKK is the Desert Eagle, which is often used in movies and computer games due to its massiveness and size. Unloaded, the Desert Eagle weighs about 2 kg , depending on the version, and impresses with its stately dimensions: (length: 273 mm, height: 159 mm, width: 32 mm). The barrel length can be between 152 mm - 254 mm, depending on the version. For hunting and sporting use, the gas pressure loader is rather unsuitable due to these data, at best as a catch shot weapon for heavy cloven-hoofed game due to the penetrating calibers in which it is offered (.357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .50 AE), the pistol has advantages over other pistols. However, the large calibers result in a low magazine capacity of 7-9. Among fans of the Desert Eagle, those made in Israel are particularly sought after, as their polygon barrels are considered more accurate.
