    The pistol I have now is an antique. Legally I am not allowed to "use" it (fire it). But I do not need a licence, registration or a permit to purchase to obtain one of these. Percussion revolvers may seem like a good choice, but you need percussion caps. Anyway I have a love of old flintlocks, so I purchased a .70 caliber smoothbore flintlock pistol with a left hand lock & a brass cannon barrel.
    Like my smoothbore fusil this pistol can digest round ball, buckshot & bird shot or any combination of two of these at one time. This is a good choice for me because with a leather patch or wads or wadding it takes the same size ammo as my fusil. It only requires a rock for ignition & is easy to clean & maintain. If the need should arise I can find plenty of alternative ammo to feed this pistol.
