These would usually come in identical pairs so as not to afford either combatant any advantage in the duel. Duels were the common  accepted way for gentlemen of the day to settle a dispute, there would be witnesses present to ensure fair play. Sometimes the duellers would stand back to back take ten paces turn and fire at there adversary often missing completely or clipping the shoulder. Then it became a race to see who could re-load first, so gentlemen of the day would practise this art as it could mean whether they lived or died during a disagreement.

Although these pistols weren’t the most convenient to use, flintlock pistols were one of the most common types of pistols through out the whole of the 18/19th centaury to use. You had to reload a new shot after every shot after hitting the flint with the  hammer to make it go off making these pistols quite the challenge to use.
