    This works with all handguns ingame. That includes

    LeMat
    Schoefield
    Cattleman
    High power
    Mauser
    Semi-auto (pistol, not shotgun [obviously])
    Double Action
    Volcanic

    You should get this through regular single player-ing, but a good way to quickly acquire kills is to run into hideouts (or even friendly towns, that way you can go for "Friends in High Places".) and only use pistols or revolvers. It is tempting to use repeaters and rifles, but if you just hold back, you will get this.

    EDIT:
    SP and MP stats DO NOT combine. You must either do this in SP or MP, not both.

    If you have red dead undead, this achievement can be won very easily while on Death. While on Death, running into a zombie instantly kills them, each kill counts toward the weapon you currently have out. So just run through Jorge's Gap with a handgun and you'll get plenty of kills.

    Knockout MooseNice solution....might be worth adding that Death is a horse from the Undead Nightmare DLC.

    greenbaymackeyBy far the fastest and easiest solution if you have Undead Nightmare. Just did it and it took like 5-10 minutes.

    TenFootBunnyLOVE this solution! Turns out I didn't have many pistol kills left in Undead Nightmare compared to what I had in the core game or MP, so this helped me finished off the achievement in about 10 minutes.

    I got this after losing my horse on a bounty mission, keep the bounty on your shoulder, and walk back to town, the bounty's friends will keep respawning, so you've got a plentiful supply of nice legal targets, it may also be an idea to stop just outside town, drop the bounty, and defend him until the achievement pops.

    AbmaOnlineThis only works when the bounty is still alive. When he's dead only two or three groups of enemies will attack you.

    MRMIdAS2kIt does, but you can't take your dead bounty back to town IIRC, so the solution hinges on him being alive.
