Musketeers needed, please!
Posted by Linden on August 11, 1998 at 23:38:05:
As I know next to nothing about firearms, either now or in JA's day, please will someone help me out with an incident in the plot I'm writing.
Could a musket or other firearm of the sort available to an ordinary soldier shoot through a door, or would the bullet be stopped by the wood?
If it depends on the wood and the gun, please could you tell me what would be needed for the bullet *not* to go through the door?
(One of the great thinks about fiction - I can make the door as thick as I want!)
Thank you in anticipation, military minded Pemberleyans
