Y7 h21 gunpowder times

  1. 1. Gunpowder Times which will only increase accuracy over time. As I said at the beginning, cannons are here to stay. 1429 Seige in OrleansOh My Liege, **********************************************Please don’t let us beUnder Siege! Kerbang! Gunpowder is storming the hills has1454 end of the 100 Year War amazing ammo it is the secret weapon for the English winning the war. Although itCannons are here to stay – especially if you’re caught takes long to load it really is a hit!!! Thein a siege… evidence of this is the power of it can even kill its own soldiers! My opinion isWhilst cannons in the late 1200’s were experimental that this machine is the best EVER warand not very effective, as time went by more weapon.experience in both casting the guns with fewer flawsand making them more accurate and less likely to *********************************************explode along with making the right gunpowderturned these war machines into very effectiveweapons.So much so that the last battle in Gascony last year(1453) had 300 cannons in use and this was the firstbattle where they were a deciding factor, but Isuspect it won’t be the last.Leading up to these last days at war there have beenmany uses for cannons to help both us and theopposition to succeed in taking over territory. Theyhave been mainly used in sieges such as in 1324 the Yes That Right! Brand New Hand GunsEnglish fortess of La Reole in Gascony fell after a Have Been Made From The ‘Gun’s-Men’month’s bombardment by cannon. This was followed Company That Had Supposedly Beenin 1429 with the siege in Orleans, where once again Out Of Business For 3 Years!England fell to Joan of Arc. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> IN IT FOR GUNS!I think that cannons have now shown how effective DON’T BE AGAINST GUNS!that they in warfare. They are great at shocking and Guns are a use of many different thingscausing fear to the opposition, and with the threat such as self defence, protection, lookingof how powerful they are becoming especially with tough and of course criminal offence.them now being mounted on wheels and more mobile,

When people say no to guns it’s and the rest, but he alsosomething we don’t agree with and that’swhy you should go for guns and make needs a flask of courselife easier you could save your own life powder for lading, a touchwith one of these!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< box of fine powder forThe two brothers who own this company priming, a bag of bullets,have apparently been ‘Working Their matches, a sword for backBullets Off’ All this time their guns hadbeen out of stock!

All in all, a waste of time. I mark the musket a Something measly 2 out of 10! Lucas Milnes Better! ********************************** The Arquebus fires the long bow into the pages of history It has now been many years since the first hand gun was invented and a fewWho on Earth thought that years since the Germans come up withthe musket was a good the invention of the Arquebus in 1475. The revolutionary Arquebus works by aidea? The cumbersome spring which is let loose by a trigger thatweapons are extremely throws the match, which was fastened toheavy, requiring a rest to it, forward into the pan which contains the priming. It is from the spring that the gunenable usage. The musket gets its name.isnt a weapon fro the weak, Now new developments has been made to the brilliant Arquebus, which will solvenot only does the musketeer the problems of aiming the gun and thehave to carry the weapon danger of being knocked over by the recoil of the piece which also meant that
  3. 3. hurting the enemy was very small. The age of cannon and gun is the future ofGermans have come up with the answer modern warfare. The long bow is now into these problems by bending the butt the pages of history.downwards and so this elevates thebarrel so as to bring it into the range ofthe eye so improving the aiming of theArquebus greatly. They have also slopedthe butt so it now fits into the shoulderinstead of being held against the breast,so that means that the soldier can put onefoot forward and can also lean forward sothat the recoil no longer knocks him over.He now has better balance in his stance.These amazing new developments nowmake the Arquebus a very potentweapon.The military leaders now must lookforwards not backwards and realize the****************************************************************************************************** THE NEW MUSKET FLOPIt has just been announced that the musket has been redeveloped and is nowthe new weapon for today’s soldier. We will no longer have to carry around asmall child just to hold it for us but it has become smaller and lighter so thatwe only have to carry around a stick to rest the musket on when it needs tobe fired. However to fire the musket we will also need to carry course powder,fine powder, bullets and a match and by the time I have got all of this stuffout I think I would have been shot by the enemy!The aim of this weapon is very poor so there is a good chance I will shoot myown side and there is also a chance it could blow up in my face so thequestion is will I be getting this new weapon? The longbow is much faster toload and has a very good aim and I think this will not be replaced by aweapon we cannot properly rely on so I will stick with the longbow which is aweapon to be proud of.**************************************************************
