    What kind of handgun is this?

    This shouldn't be too hard. I'm actually surprised I can't figure it out myself.

    THIS link includes a picture of a pistol. It appears to have a double action type trigger and possibly an ambidextrous manual safety. At first I thought it was a Para in LDA but none of them that I've seen had a squared trigger guard like that.

    Any clues?

    The barrel opening doesn't look like a .45, but neither does it look like a .22.

    I suspect it's not a firearm at all.

    Picture I see surely looks much like a Browning Hi Power. The extra toe on the grip detracts as well as the muzzle opening. I suspect some type of BB or pellet or paintball gun or some type of toy modeled similar to the Browning.

    Yeah, the barrel was throwing me off. Also I could be wrong but the lower looks like it may be polymer which could be a clue. Plus there appears to be no stamping of caliber or anything else on the barrel.

    Means to identify the object or the source of the picture is simple.....ask the author of the article: Judi Curriejcurrie@seacoastonline.com

    I suspect some type of pellet pistol, air soft or such it has features of S@W type autos but that is not uncommon for air soft pellet pistols to be made to look like some real fire arm.

    There would be somebody who would put the hammer to their head and live to tell how his buddy died = "accidental" discharge.

    Would it then be a "thee" shooter?
