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 be awarded up to 3 health points per enemy hit, depending on damage dealt (similar to the Black Box), and the weapon fires 15% faster than the Pistol. However, the clip size is 25% smaller, down to 9 shots per clip compared to the Pistol's 12 shots.

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