Popular firearm of yesteryear for close- quarter battles! The Blunderbuss had the ability to deliver a decisive blast of shot at close range. In the mid-1700s, it was used by both the military and civilians alike as a means of powerful defense. It's interesting to note that George Washington viewed the Blunderbuss as an alternative to the carbine for the Continental Dragoons.
Dependable percussion piece! As one could imagine, this bad boy was the firearm of choice for fighting on ships, particularly to swiftly end the advance of enemy boarding parties. In addition, the Blunderbuss was used by American colony settlers. And by the end of the 18th century, the Blunderbuss was preferred by coachmen as a trusty firearm to stop attacking bandits in their tracks. It has also been the gun of choice by marauding pirates.
Plus, it was well-suited for guarding gates, stairways and streets. It could be reloaded quickly, even while on the go. Today, it is often fired at village festivals and serves as a legendary conversation starter in trophy rooms.
