There was a good reason why bushrangers carried multiple pistols. Speed of reloading wasn't one of them.

What does one of the antique ones cost?
Depends on the firearm itself Bug, longarm or pistol, flintlock or percussion, & of course its condition. They can be very inexpensive, a couple of hundred dollars, mine is in excellent condition, & flintlock pistols tend to be more expensive. Mine cost me two & a half thousand. For me, well worth the price. Don't forget that after the shtf, in a lawless society, you could cut down any longarm into a pistol.

I have a longarm that would very easily cut down to a pistol and still retain its full rate of fire. But that's illegal and a one way conversion. I'd rather have a legit flintlock. I love the historical stuff, and it's useful in a SHTF scenario too. Personally I'd rather get shot with a rifle than a musket. No need for multiple shots when the home invader has become something resembling a meat doughnut.

Totally agree Bug.
