File:Pistol 3.png
The Pistol in most of the Grand Theft Auto III-era games.
File:Glock sa.png
The Glock that is used in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas's cutscenes.

The Pistol is the most basic firearm in many Grand Theft Auto games. It is mainly used at the start of the game, or later when the player has run out of ammunition for better firearms. The 9mm pistol generally has poor stopping power, average accuracy, and a fairly short range. In GTA San Andreas the weapon is significantly more effective. Partly because it's possible to kill a target in one shot to the head, and also because it is possible to wield two pistols, 'guns akimbo' style, once Hitman skill level is reached. In Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas this weapon is the standard armament of many gang members and all police officers on patrol.

In GTA III, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, the pistol resembles a Colt 1911 in shape, and its magazine capacity ranges from 12 rounds (in GTA III) to 17 rounds (GTA Vice City onwards). All of this is despite the fact that the Colt 1911 isn't commonly chambered in 9mm and, even if it was, it still possesses a single-stack magazine design, therefore making it impossible to fit 17 rounds into the magazine without redesigning the weapon.

In the introduction cutscene of GTA San Andreas, where all three members of C.R.A.S.H. arrest Carl Johnson; Jimmy Hernandez and Eddie Pulaski are holding Glock 17s, instead of Colt 1911s like the ones in gameplay. Given the fact that the in-game pistol's magazine capacity (17 rounds) is incorrect for a Colt 1911 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.

In GTA Vice City Stories, the pistol resembles a Beretta 92.

In GTA Liberty City Stories, the pistol resembles the Glock 17.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the pistol very closely resembles the Glock 22 (as evidenced by the slide clearly saying "22"). This Glock model has an interesting difference; the front sight, which is normally a single post, is instead a copy of the twin-post rear sight.
