Handheld firearms used by a wide variety of individuals both good and evil. They come in a variety of different styles and sizes. Many Enforcers use them. Commander Feral is known to carry a pistol with an extendable stock in a shoulder holster underneath his greatcoat. Felina Feral also carries one in a holster on her belt, and uses it frequently. Laser pistols are also often the chosen sidearms of guards at various locations. The SWAT Kats themselves typically do not use them, however.
In some episodes (such as Enter the Madkat), Feral’s pistol is shown ejecting spent cartridges as if it were firing bullets, even though it is visibly shooting lasers.
