According to our records, the Air Captain's pistol was a heavily modified Vulcan repeating pistol used by select troops aboard dirigibles during the various Air Wars of the 19th century. The pistol fired two kinds of projectiles, the conventional 41. caliber round and the special and heavier incendiary thermite round. The thermite rounds were specifically designed as anti- dirigible rounds meant to cause fire and havoc on opposing airships. The heavy round required a complex range finder to use properly. The thermite round also required that the barrel be primed with air via the reloading level pump, A small gauge indicted when the barrel was primed and the gun could be fired.
