Details on available firearms. Note that a character can not doge while trying to use a musket, they are so inaccurate that any movement means they will miss.

In 1650 firearms were perhaps best described as “expensive” clubs. Reliability was poor and effectiveness pretty doubtful. However over the past 100 years weapons have progressed!
