Handguns are guns designed to be fired with one or two hands, but no shoulder support.  They are short range weapons and relatively low powered.  Even the most powerful handguns are not as powerful as moderately powered rifles.  Handguns are primarily used for self defense, law enforcement, and, in the military, as backup weapons.
