The Texas Gyroc Pistol is one of the earliest examples of this class of weapon. Gyrocs fire spin stabilized rockets the size of heavy bullets. Unlike most conventional and electromagnetic weapons gyroc rounds accelerate until running out of fuel and because of this they stay much more stable in flight.
The Texas specifically needs a ‘muffler’ to route the exhaust out the front and down, which counters the kick of the weapon that forces the barrel in that direction when fired. Sadly the Gyroc rounds from the Texas are not very accurate, especially out to the full 2000m. While the rounds fly pretty straight, a revolver is not the best frame for such things. However gyrocs can be made as smart munitions which can alter course in flight. Homing rounds however are expensive and best used when you have already hit a target with a radio tag.
