Hand weapon abode

A pistol.

A pistol was a classification for a small hand-held weapon, of a design found on many different planets, used by numerous races and cultures. (TOS movie: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

On Earth, the earliest pistols were projectile weapons that utilized expanding gases to launch a projectile at high velocity from the weapon. (TNG episode: "A Fistful of Datas") As weapon technology progressed, many changes were made to the basic design, and eventually the name "pistol" came to refer to energy weapons of similar shapes and sizes as the old projectile pistols. (ENT episode: "North Star",TOS episode: "Shore Leave")

On Nova Empyrea, Ethan was quite good at shooting targets with a projectile pistol. (TOS novel: The Better Man)

In 2290, Hikaru Sulu used his collection of projectile pistols when directed energy weapons were not available. (TLE novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire)
