Got the idea for the upside-down barrel on that pistol from one I came across today: the Mateba Autorevolver:



The barrel set at the bottom of the cylinder rather than the top helps make the recoil less jerky, since it's closer to being centered on the gun's handle. The Major's pistol wouldn't be semi-automatic like the Mateba, though (video of a Mateba's semi-auto firing here), since that would defeat the purpose of having a pistol as a self-defense gun, namely that its firing mechanism is just about the simplest and thus the most reliable thing possible, so as not to let you down in a pinch!

Maybe the Major does know her after all.

(Togusa in Ghost in the Shell favored this type of weapon.)

I prefer Dirty Harry's 44 magnum, but I can't get it and my wallet in my purse at same time.

Yep, sometimes you gotta go with a more compact man-stopper.
