What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little minuteman? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the British Grenadiers, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on the French, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in standing extremely still whilst I get blown apart with grapeshot and I’ve got the best sideburns in the entire British Army. You are nothing to me but just another Colonial. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this flat Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Atlantic Ocean? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of loyalist across the Colonies and your tax record is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, French lover. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your revolution. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with volley fire. Not only am I extensively trained in stabbing dark people with a ridiculously large bayonet, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the British East India Company and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable arse off the face of the Empire, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you bloody fool. I will throw you in that harbour like you did our tea and you will fucking drown in it. You’re fucking dead, lad

Hello gentlemen, I would like to inquire about the possibility of a boat capable of operating underneath the surface.

The pistol allows a man of less skill to best a man of more skill simply by virtue of shooting first.

The sword requires each man to readily train himself and face his opponent in uninterrupted close combat. What sort of peasant would see more honor in fighting with a pistol? The small sword is a gentlemen's weapon.
>>
>>22059442
Ah, but to raise, aim, and fire quickly and accurately requires its own skill, good sir. And then, should you be so unfortunate to miss, you must stand bravely as your opponent squarely aims for you.

I ask, is there anything more to measure a man who can stare down death?

Then by such token, if a man should be shot dead first, was he not careless in his own way? If by grace of his skills he, the better of two pistoliers, should die in much the same manner of your example. While he can not deflect or otherwise stop the deathly shot, he ought to have shot first himself then?

Breaking character for a moment, thats not actually how pistol duels were conducted. (at least not usually. No joke, most of the time it was a coin flip that decided who shot first. The other had to sit there and wait his turn before shooting back.

Why would any loyal subject want to openly carry a musket in the first place? All you will do is bring the crown down upon your head, and scare innocent mothers and their little ones.

And really, with frigates, artillery, and large armies of redcoats, there's no way a few colonials with muskets could ever impugn the honor of his majesty in the first place.

Why are you even here in the first place if that's what you think? Go away then.

People are having a discussion and exchanging ideas and that douche isn't advancing the subject or thread at all.

It's like he is a lost redditor making Archer references (something something lazy stupid joke) and fishing for up-votes. This isn't that place.

Actually, that's wrong. The Grenadier Guards earned their bearskins at Waterloo, yes.

But bearskins were worn by British grenadiers as early as the French and Indian wars.

>We leave the cabin to inspect the ruckus
>Foul smell like a portal to Hell assaults out nostrils
>A pile of dead goats next to our fire
>I am verily spooked, but William believes it to be a prank by the local injuns
>Later that night William leaves to use the facilities in the woodes
>He does not arrive back at the cabin until after first light
>I inquire as to his whereabouts for the greater part of the previous night
>He replied, and I quote, "I would not worry thine self about such things."
>William keeps broaching the topic of going out into the woode one last time but I will have none of it
>Leave Appalachia and return to Boston
>William acts as a total stranger now, and his family and loved ones are all concerned.

When last I spoke with his goodewife, she informs me that he is of violent tendency and she worries greatly about him. I do believe my best mate William was accosted by some foul native magic that night in Appalachia.
