An example of a semi-automatic pistol.

A semi-automatic firearm is a firearm that fires one shot per pull of the trigger, using the force of either the shot itself (through gas operation or blowback action) or the recoil to cycle the weapon to chamber another round and reset the hammer/striker; the sear will prevent the hammer/striker from re-engaging the firing pin and firing the weapon without another pull of the trigger.
