a hand weapon of similar size to a pistol that fires a laser
The exhibits will include demonstrations of small arms firing; an artillery demonstration; 'Nike in the Attack' motion picture; helicopter armament firing demonstrations; laser pistol (light ray) firing demonstrations, and howitzer and mortar firing demonstrations.
All passengers had put on emergency spacesuits when the unequal battle had begun; now he found himself an extra air tank, and some officer’s laser pistol, which he stuck in a loop of his suit’s belt.
He was well armed; taped to the palm of his hand was an anesthetic prong that would flip out at a command of his muscles, and beneath his armpit was a neural spray in case something went awry with the prong. He carried a laser pistol too, but the last thing he intended was to use it on Mortensen.
Plagiar sat at his table, his laser pistol, the safety off, lying at the ready in front of him…and I knew what he was saving me for.

He pushed the button which reclosed the landcar window, holstered his laser-pistol.
I'd attended a couple of lectures on laser weapons. One thing every expert agreed on: a laser pistol with a six inch barrel theoretically impossible.
Of those weapons with which he was familiar, he chose four grenades, an energy rifle, a wide-dispersion laser pistol and a pair of throwing knives.
He glanced over some of the orders and began estimating what he'd need: a laser cannon, two vibrators, a molecular imploder (if he could get his hands on one somewhere on Northpoint). There'd be the standard hand weapons: the stungun, the screecher, and an old-fashioned laser pistol.
Angel looked at Ming and saw that she had a full-power laser pistol stuck in her belt, which she now removed and checked.
They were going to start a fight in front of the building that would get progressively more violent. And then they'd start shooting up the area with laser pistols.
