This is a single-shot, muzzle-loading flintlock pistol. Reloading it takes a long time, but the user may not have much time. That's why the makers of this late Eighteenth/early Ninteenth Century Ottoman Albanian pistol built a club into the handle. Fire your shot, reverse the gun, then start swinging.
