The pistol is a gun you start out with in pretty much every Resident Evil game. This gun is not very powerful and doesn't hold much ammo but it does have great accuracy and you can get headshots easily with it. In TF2, The Scout and Engineer have rapid fire pistols. One of The Soldier's weapons, The Righteous Bison is a pistol-like weapon that fires multi hitting plasma beam.  Some pistols can be weak but others are powerful (ex. Tac-45). The Five-Seven is a weak pistol but it has plenty of ammo.
