๐Ÿ”ซ Pistol

A gun emoji that displays right-to-left on all platforms. Originally intended and displayed as a weapon, this now appears as a toy water pistol / squirt gun on the majority of major platforms.

Microsoft initially displayed this as a toy ray gun in place of a weapon, and has previewed a new design coming to Windows in a future update. Google once showed this emoji as a blunderbuss. A new design is coming to Android as part of Android P.

Deprecated emoji sets from Messenger, LG, HTC and Mozilla still show a gun as these are no longer in active development.

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.
