"1492" MFW the guns pictured weren't invented until the late 19th century. By said "terrorists"

You comment on the guns not seeming fitting to 1492, yet the fact that this is a photography doesn't bother you at all. youdungoofd.jpg

I think the picture is merely representative. "These guys existed this long ago, but this is the most recent picture we could find that's relevant."

Actually Guns were being invented as early as the 14th century by the Chinese they were called Hand cannons... Now go to sleep you have school in the morning.

And the hand cannons couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from 10 feet away. gunpowder in China was mainly used for fireworks, and a little bit in the armies for intimidation but couldn't kill anyone well. It wasn't until the technology went to the Janissaries in the Ottoman Empire that they were extensively used in battle effectively and it wasn't until the professional armies of England and France that firearms would make up the bulk of the military. learn2history

Not those guns. They have repeating lever action rifles which weren't invented until the late 19th century.

1830s or so, was not it?
