Tis me style to be usin' a pistol, for the pistol be a mighty piece of engineerin'

first ye have yer shot, the first line o' defense, as it were.......

second, ye flip it o'er, and ye can use the buttstock as a club, Savvy?

third, ye can throw it

and if ye have a bayonet, it can be used as a knife!, it be the perfect weapon, in capable hands.......

me personal method be to carry a long knife, or hatchet as well........so that I've got options......

tho, me cutlass be never far from me good hand as well........

Mebbe a cutlass in one hand and a pistol in one..........hook will work?

No, scratch that idea.

We already denouncedd the RPG as unpiratey (and there is usually not much left to plunder afterwards).
The only RPG acceptable is the Rabid Parrot Gizmo.

We have split off an extra thread for special pirate weapons from this one (just in case you haven't noticed yet, it is by now probably far down the stack because that discussion has ebbed down some time ago).

Insultomatic

Postby black bart on Mon Aug 07, 2006 11:09 am

I can sell ye a nice 'Insultomatic'...tis deadly at close quarters. It works by broadcastin all the insults from the 'Pirate Insult Challenge' in rapid succession. Almost as successful as the Swatopluk Techno-Blaster...That works simply by blinding your opponents with scientic knowhow and while they remain confused ye makes yer escape! :D

Let's resurrect this dead thread!

I say rapier is the weapon of choice for the Gentleman Pirate. It has finer control than a cutlass and less chance of blowing up in your face when compared to a pistol.

Arrr. I may be proficient wit' me cutlass, but when it comes t' dual pistol wielding, I be deadly.
Tho, I always 'ave me cutlass wit' me, in the case I run out'a powder in battle.
