    I own a musket for home defense, since that's what the founding fathers intended. Four ruffians broke into my house. "What the devil?" I said, as I grabbed my powdered wig and Kentucky rifle. Blew a golf ball sized hole through the first man, he was dead on the spot. Drew my pistol on the second man and missed him entirely because it's smoothbore and I later found out that it nailed the neighbors dog. I had to resort to the cannon mounted at the top of the stairs loaded with grape shot. "Tally ho lads!" I yelled, as the grape shot shredded two men in the blast, the sound and shrapnel set off car alarms. I mounted my trusty war horse, Charles, and charged the last terrified rapscallion. Impaling him with my standard issue 2 foot bayonet. He bled out waiting on the police to arrive since triangular bayonet wounds were impossible to stitch up. Just as the founding fathers intended.

    this man straight up disrespecting the other one, he really just said "I only brought enough gun powder for one shot"

    And that is why pirates carried like 100 of them on their person at all times remember soldier it is faster to change guns rather than re-load

    I was deadass anxious that the bullet was going to hit the moderator.

    Whenever you make fun of revolutionary war dudes for standing in a firing line, remember they did that because you have a better chance of actually hitting a guy when like 20 guys all fire at the same time.

    I remember reading a story where a duel like that happened. One guy missed, the other one misfired and hurt himself and they both went home like "Yeah, we're done" xD

    In fairness, most firearms back then were powerful enough to tear through the average set of steel plate armor, it's actually hitting your target that was the problem, especially with pistols. Also pistols tended to be pretty survivable since they lacked the firepower of other weapons and the bullets would often just get stuck in people rather than going clean through, although that's also what actually caused a lot of deaths with these duels.

    Pirates: "Well of course the duel took forever, they didn't keep 8 other guns on their person to switch to, the Amateurs"

    Part of why people solved duels with pistols was because there was far less fear of death then using swords and no matter how good you were both of you had the same chance of winning lol.

    Dueling with pistols, past a certain range, offered an extremely high chance of both parties being uninjured, let alone fatally wounded. Useful for the people who demanded satisfaction, but when the day came, suddenly found the prospect of staring down the barrel of a gun a bit more unpleasant.

    Honestly, the fact that they both fired 3 times without jamming is a miracle.

    As Richthofen once said “19th century gunsmithing is the best, when in doubt, attach more barrels”
