This foodspring video shows you how to do pistols correctly.

Pistol squats are deep squats standing on one leg. This exercise is very challenging and demands a lot of mobility, coordination and strength. Start in a standing position, then stretch one leg forward. Hold it out while you slowly bend and then straighten your other leg. Keep your weight balanced on your standing leg, and use your arms for balance.
