Those aren't handguns. Here's mine, Tom.  A Desert Eagle with an M203 Shorty 40 grenade launcher. I call it the "wrist breaker". I bet you didn't know that's what the rails on the pistol were for. I'm still working on a better front sight for it, but for now I just guesstimate. BTW, it's my only crew-served handgun.

The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

I bought a break-open 37mm pistol and an M2037 flare gun, but don't think I can get the super-duper bird bombs anymore that I found at a gun show one time. I have some empty cases I could reload but never bothered with trying. IIRC I bought smoke grenades and flares from Firequest or another place just like it that were both pretty lame. If I was going to buy another 37mm flare gun I might get the "Bloop Tube" M79 style. They may be old-fashioned but they still look bad-@$$ and the longer barrel should have a higher velocity for more range. This one looks real enough to fool just about anyone.

I just posted 2 links for ammo.
Including Bird bombs.



You can pack some interesting crap into a flare body as well.   ;D

I know, but they weren't like the bird bombs I had. They were a lot longer and probably twice as powerful.

I may have found my next pistol. ;D I don't know what kind of shell that is, but it looks better than a 5" long bird bomb.

You may have seen this picture of a 12 gauge Desert Eagle before. That would be more awkward handling than than the .50 AE, but not much.
