Hundreds. They are generally separated into revolvers and pistols (anything not a revolver) But then it becomes complex. There are different types of revolvers, such as single action, double action, top break, tip up, swing out cylinder, etc. There are single shot pistols that are top break, and bolt action. There are double and single action pistols, and even fully automatic (machine pistols). There are shotgun pistols, small caliber pistols, ones that will fit in a vest pocket, and some that have scopes and a bipod. There are antique black powder pistols and revolvers, and pistols with frames made of plastic type polymers. The study of firearms is a VERY broad subject.
