There are far to many pictures on this page. I suggest a gallery be created. --Chimpso 04:15, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree. Plus, 3 of the pictures don't even have captions. --Montybrady 04:17, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Does anyone think that the Gta IV weakest pistol could be a USP.Andrew nicholson 17:49, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

No.

This is the GTA IV pistol:

This is a Glock 21.

For comparison purposes, this is an H&K USP.

The GTA IV pistol is clearly a Glock. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 02:10, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

That looks like a Glock, if I remember correctly (which I usually don't) the USP has a wider barrel. Chimpso (Talk) 02:22, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
Ok the weakest pistol is a Glock 21 and the photos helped. end of discussionAndrew nicholson 16:19, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't the .357 Magnum bullets from the Desert Eagle be weaker than the .40 S&W from the Glock 21? If so, how come the Desert Eagele is stronger than the Glock?
Short answer: No.
Long answer: It's not as simple as "larger number = more powerful". .40 S&W is a middle-ground between 9x19mm and .45 ACP, almost always used in semi-auto pistols. .357 Magnum is usually used in large-frame revolvers and generates more pressure than any of the above. I don't have firsthand experience in these matters but I'm quite certain that .357 Magnum is more powerful than .45 ACP but less so than .44 Magnum and .50 Action Express. So yeah, it does make sense that the .357 Mag Desert Eagle is more powerful than the .40 S&W Glock.
Side note: It's the Glock 22 that is .40 S&W. The 21 is .45 ACP, I only used a picture of it because it was the most suitable one for the comparison. The Glock model in GTA IV is a 22 because you can see it written on the slide. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 21:33, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Triangle pistol

In the triangle club you won't get a star for getting to the area with the pistol unless possibly you use it to shoot at the people. Plus only one guard I have ever encountered there uses a pistol the others use there fists and the patrons just run out the door. --Irelandcool 23:03, 10 July 2011 (BST)
