Nothing feels better than having a Pirate flintlock pistol tucked in yar sash, ready fer battle. Introduced about 1630, the flintlock rapidly replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the matchlock and wheellock mechanisms. We will not ship any pirate weapons to foreign countries as most of them will not allow it, even if they are replicas. It would be common fer a pirate to carry a set of two pirate pistols, which would be called a brace of pistols. Blackbeard the pirate be known to carry 6 flintlock pistols. More be better, arrrrgh!
