Pistol Fascination

With the last post, I put a picture up of a double-barrelled wheellock pistol and realized it was a very interesting piece, so I wanted to find more. Thus far I found a listing for a Breech-loading wheellock gun, German, 1570-80 <>. In the following picture there are three pieces, the rifle, which is 17th century and out of our period, a wheel lock pistol, ca 1580 and a priming flask, ca 1600.

I think they all look really interesting and it would be a shame to ignore them, simply because people don't feel they are "period" for our play, when obviously they are.
