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.
