Dueling pistols are pistols of identical appearance, reliability, and accuracy that were used in a classical duel. They were often black powder, single-shot pistols. The use of pistols in duels became popular in Britain and the future United States during the mid-eighteenth century. Initially holster or travelling pistols were mainly used, but by the end of the century special-purpose dueling pistols were being made. The dueling pistols of this time were sold in pairs usually in compartmentalized wooden cases along with a powder flask, rods for cleaning and loading, spare flints and a bullet mold. The flintlock pistols of this time had a delay between pulling the trigger and the firing of the bullet. As such dueling pistols tended to have heavy barrels, solid grips and hair triggers. Special care was taken when molding the bullets so as to ensure that there was no hollow part in them. The loading was also carefully undertaken.
