THE GUN DOES NOT FIRE

HISTORY

Flintlock guns had a flint stone which, when activated, produced a spark that ignited the gunpowder. These guns had to be reloaded manually after each shot.

Flintlock guns, one of the most used firearms in the eighteenth century. Flintlock pistols had a flint stone which, when activated, produced a spark that ignited the gunpowder.

All of these blunderbusses required manual reloading of their ammunition, which was introduced through the muzzle after each shot. Usually the weapon was loaded with a single lead bullet, although it could also be used with several smaller bullets (pellets).

Used by pirates in the eighteenth century, the blunderbuss was very imprecise, so it was more useful in approaches, during naval battles, where combat was at a short distance. In addition, these weapons were used for a single shot, since the reloading method was very slow and time was not used to reload it. Therefore, the fighters after the shooting were forced to draw their sabers or swords or use the pistol as a blackjack, since the circumstances did not allow it to be reloaded in time.
