I bet you're all thinking, "Scout can handle the meanest guns out there, he wouldn't use a tiny gun, he's too awesome for that." And you'd be right, I am awesome. Then I realised I could tell people that they are going to be killed BY THE SMALLEST GUN KNOWN TO MAN! Then kill them. Ma always said don't make threats you can't carry out.
Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol publicity blurb

The Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol is a community-created secondary weapon for the Scout. It is a small, black Pistol with a short barrel and light-colored wooden grips.

While the Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol is active, the player will not receive any damage as a result of falling, and will be awarded 5 health points per enemy hit. However, the weapon fires 25% slower than the Pistol, and the wearer will receive 20% more damage from all sources.

The Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Pick-Pocket's Pocket Pistol".
