Can you wield a shield and pepperbox?

Ask Box Question: Could you wear a shield while using a pepperbox, since the technical definition of two handed weapon is “requires two hands to attack” and pepperbox only needs an extra hand during reloading?


No. The guns are two handed weapons due to reload.

Shields count as using a hand, and really do. You have to hold a bar of a shield in order to manipulate the angles and hold against attack. They’re also heavy, and loading early guns takes some dexterity, especially early modified cap and ball guns like these. It would be far too clumsy.

Best defense is a good offense for gunslingers.

Sorry for the delay, thought I’d replied.
