|Black Powder pistol|
|Physical and technical specifications|
|Usage and history|
The Black Powder pistol was an example of a weapon from an archaic era. It was slow to reload thus some people would sometimes carry more than one but, it was largely ineffective in modern combat. Although it was slow to reload it was very inexpensive which made it popular among Smugglers, Pirates and anyone who was looking for some personal protection. Nonetheless they were usually either collector's items or functional museum reproductions. Still, even after the Black powder pistol was deemed "primitive" Yctor Arms still had the pistol in semi-production.
