"The Sheriff" is a Sidearm in this game. It is a heavy-barreled revolver designed for precision target shooting.


High accuracy and stopping power are a trade-off for reload speed. With this hand cannon, one shot is usually all you need.

Location and Unlocking[]


  • "The Sheriff" is based off the .357 Magnum Dan Wesson PPC revolver.
  • A PPC (Police Practical Course) was a type of target revolver that was designed for use in practical shooting competitions. Usually they were stock Colt, Smith & Wesson, or Ruger service revolvers chambered in .38 Special or .357 Magnum that were the same as those used by a Law Enforcement Officer's department. Then they were tuned by a gunsmith and fitted with a heavy barrel shroud and adjustable target sights. They went out of fashion when Police departments and Law Enforcement agencies switched to semi-automatic service pistols.
