The earliest incarnation of the flintlock ignition system was the dog lock. The dog was the safety catch that held the weapon in the halfcocked position. When it was fully cocked, the dog fell away allowing the weapon to fire. The stubby (18 inch) blunderbuss, with its wide mouth and .69 calibre was quick to load and a favorite with sailors, pirates and coachmen. The dog lock fell out of favour by 1725, making it a favorite during the “Golden Age” of piracy.
