What’s an “assault pistol”?

After firing on co-workers with an assault pistol during a meeting about 9am Wednesday (2am Thursday AEST), the suspect killed himself when confronted by police

I’ve heard of a starter’s pistol or starters gun.

I’ve heard of an automatic pistol.

I’ve heard of a Sex Pistol.

But…what the living fuck is an ASSAULT pistol???

Did it leap out of its holster and start shooting people?? Is it a Glock (I mean yeah yeah we know to gun grabbers they are ALL Glocks) with a bad temper?

Was it a Kimber having a bad hairtrigger day?

Me confused.

Das ist eine Schmeisser herr Brendan :em05:

Anything that is black and scary and can be fired with one hand. If it needs two hands, it’s an assault rifle, even if it’s a single-shot .22

I guess there are some theoretical contenders:

Beretta 93R
vz.61 Skorpion
C96 Schnellfeuer
Lebman 1911

Now they are saying the Virginia shooter used an SKS! I guess if it can accept an evil “banana clip” it must be an “assault whatever”. God save us from all these morons. More range time and reload practice needed by the good guys, and I mean us on the street. In my view the security detail did a fantastic… Read more »

Exactly.
Assault polled the scariest so they use that for any gun, I’ve even seen “assault magazine”

They want to use “military style” but people like the military and hate lefties.
