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")
