๐Ÿ”ซ Pistol

A gun emoji that displays right-to-left on all platforms. Originally intended as a weapon, this now appears as a toy squirt gun / water pistol in designs from the majority of major vendors: Apple, Google, Samsung, WhatsApp Twitter and Facebook (soon).

Microsoft previously displayed this as a toy ray gun in place of a weapon and Google once showed this emoji as a blunderbuss.

Google began updating updating this emoji to display as a water pistol in April 2018, and Microsoft has previewed a future version of this emoji to be shown in a future release of Windows 10.

Pistol was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.

๐Ÿšฉ Appearance differs greatly cross-platform. Use with caution.
