Here's the question/answer you are looking for


Question of aanik (07.21.2015): What is the name of the gun used by pirates in the past?
Flintlock PistolA: All depends on the time! But I think you need to talk about the XVII & XVIII centuries. The pirates used several types of guns, such as:
- The flintlock pistol (photo), which was pirates’(and privateers’) favorite for collisions because it was very handy. It was also used as a club for the sea air often moistened powder.
- The musket: used for hunting or during boarding when he was flared blunderbuss at the exit of the gun. It was a real cannon grapeshot used to clean the decks with its powerful discharge.
- The wheel-lock pistol.

I have for a long time been looking for the exact name of a prow sculpture that had a face carved mostly in wood and was laid in front of a sailboat. Could pirates decorate their boats with such sculptures?
What actually was the grapple used for? Could it be used for things other than collision? Could it serve as the butt of a weapon (the cap) of the gun that was not used to fire only?
