I've got a flintlock holster pistol I'm looking to sell and thought I'd lay
it out for y'all to have a go at before moving it on to Ebay or some other
sales outlet. It's a British Sea Service pistol as far as I know, has an
iron ramrod and brass furniture. It looks more like a light dragoon pistol
to me but I'm no expert on British firearms so I can't say. I think it's .62
cal. but it's been so long since I've shot it I'm not sure... in short I
can't tell you much about this thing other than it's a single shot,
flintlock holster pistol from the late 18th century or early 19th century.
The frizzen is slightly loose but this could be remedied with a shim in the
frizzen bridle. The lock throws good sparks and as long as you've got a good
flint in it it'll shoot. I'm asking a firm $150 for it plus whatever
shipping is which shouldn't be too much. I'm attaching a picture of the
pistol but if for some reason it doesn't come through let me know and I'll
forward it to your personal email.

"It was not unusual, on the march from the Rio Grande, to behold the most
decided evidences of terror and apprehension among the Mexican inhabitants,
and more particularly whenever they caught sight of the Texas rangers...The
husbandman would shrink behind the covert of muskeet bushes lining the
roadside, while his wife and daughters, would press their trembling lips to
the glittering crosses suspended from their necks, and hurriedly murmur
forth a fervent prayer to "our Lady of Gaudalupe,"
