Revolver or Pistol

Most of my life I have been using a revolver. mostly a S&W 38 police special, a Ruger 22 and a High Standard 22. I recently bought a Springfield XD-40. I find the slide is hard to pull back, is this normal on a new gun. I have read where after using it for a while, it gets easier. Is this right?

Handgun is the same as a pistol.
A revolver is a pistol.
A revolver is a handgun.
A semi-automatic (the xd ) is a pistol.

Don't know of I could put it anymore simply

Yes...give it more range time. I have one and it gets easier after many cleans too. Not that I clean my guns nowadays but DH does because he loves just holding guns. He thought he is doing me a favour. ha! But that's another story for another day...

It will loosen up a bit, keep shooting.
BTW revolvers are pistols

Revolvers have a cylinder, Pistols have a clip

Pistol does not mean it has a clip buddy ...

Definition of pistol is a small firearm that is designed to be fired with one hand

Where do you see anything about a "clip" or cylinder in there. ..

Also just the fact that you called a magazine a clip tells you don't know jack

Well thanks Glendenbreed, I will admit I have never fired a gun with a (magazine) not sure which magazine you mean, maybe Madd magazine. Honestly I have never fired anything like the XD I bought, will soon. Most of my life I have had a revolving gun of various brands. Guess I learned something. Who is Jack?
