There has been an old flintlock pistol passed down in my family for generations. It's usually passed down from father to son, but I was the only child my parents had, so it's mine now.
Guns make me uncomfortable, so the fact that I have this antique pistol in my house now has me feeling a bit "off". It no longer works, so that's good. It's encased in a glass case with a lock; also good. I am just so strongly opposed to having a firearm that having one, even an antique one is very weird to me.
Normally, I would do some research, but from family history I know that this is a flintlock pistol from the 17th century. I'm not sure how many iterations of "great-grandpa" that is.
It's a lot. For those of you that may not know, a flintlock refers to any gun that uses a flintlock as it's firing mechanism. They generally aren't made today in favor of automatics.
