How useful are handguns for war, revolution, personal protection, or in general? Why do soldiers in militaries even have handguns if they already have rifles which are better?

So you're not completely defenceless if your rifle fucks up?

 

Revolvers seem simpler to maintain

 

>>3683
Revolvers are also more flexible with the ammo you can use because an automatic needs the gunpowder to fall within a certain range of energy to properly knock the slide back and eject the casing. Can the ammo fit into a revolver's cylinder? Then it's probably gonna work. Not so with automatics.

This may be important in any kind of scavenging or guerilla warfar situation.

 

>>3684
thats true but autoloaders have more capacity which is the main advantage.

Turkish/Brazilian import guns are usually pretty cheap and reliabile

 

They have almost no effective range, get a rifle or die like a palestinian
