A flintlock pistol is a gun based on a flint striking ignition mechanism. Such a technique was created in 1610 by a French inventor called Marin le Bourgeoys for King Louis XIII. These firearms were common both in the military and for self-defence. In a battlefield, it was used usually as an addition to a cutlass or sword. Moreover, it was popular in duelling as well.
