Handguns (also known as Pistols and Side Arms) are a type of secondary weapon in the Call of Duty series. Handguns are usually weak with low recoil, and magazine capacities of typically 8 to 15 rounds; however there are also much stronger handguns which are louder and have more recoil and a smaller magazine capacity of 6-7 rounds. Compared to other weapons they have the fastest draw time, so it may be faster to switch to the handgun than to reload (at least if not using Sleight of Hand). When aiming down the sights they have the fastest ADS time, have no zoom, and they retain full "look/aim" movement speed when doing so.
