Duelling Pistols and Mistletoe ...

London was famous for its excellent gunsmiths during the Georgian period. In fact, George Washington himself patronized Hawkins of London for his own firearms.

Joseph Manton was one of the best and most fashionable gunmakers of the time. Many a gentleman purchased his pistols before making use of his shooting gallery on Davis Street to hone their skills.

His fame came from guns that "were light, trim, well balanced, fast handling, and impeccably fit and finished. Stocks were slender and of fine English walnut with a hand rubbed oil finish."

Richard Balfour's father, the late Earl of Saunton, might very well have ordered a set from Manton. If so, this purchase would have happened long before Richard's birth and the walnut box would sit on the shelf of the study he inherited.

Owning a set such as this might be convenient for our newest hero if he should find himself in need of a weapon, but only time will tell.

Find out if Richard Balfour will have a need for his duelling pistols when To Redeem an Earl releases next week on Friday, Dec 16th.
