      Also think early Western American expansion is cool. Manifest Destiny with single action revolvers, lever action/single action rifles and coach guns while mounted.

      you made too many timeframes to fill out, create a template with more items to fill in one singular timeframe and you'll get the (you)'s you want.

      Were pistols, as in a thing you can holster or put in a jacket, really a thing in 1450? I mean, "pistol" itself derives from "pistala" which is what the czechs called their handcannons which were basically huge bore iron tubes mounted on sticks.

        Technically I don't believe they were a thing at the time, but they were certainly technologically feasible, though a bit of a stretch.

        I mainly put it there because I couldn't think of much else, but maybe I should've replaced it with a parrying dagger

      That is an arquebus without a stock. It looks like a pistol but it's actually way bigger in proportion to the sword.

      Handguns became a thing around 1500 when wheellocks were invented that allowed you to keep your weapon primed and ready to use one handed.

      Are you on a budget here? You're sparing no expense in 1625.

        Weren't early double actions weak? Like you could break a trigger or something like that?

          The Colt M1877 "Lightning" was infamous for having a very fragile and delicate trigger mechanism.
          Other early DA/SA revolvers like the cap&ball Tranter or Beaumont-Adams were more rugged, but they were known to have VERY heavy DA trigger pulls.
          There were of course also DA-only pepperboxes, those were very popular. They were reliable, cheap, and offered lots of firepower. They were however often horribly inaccurate and not really useful beyond spitting distance.

        I wouldn't trust an 1850s-era DA. For the more modern ones I was trying to stick more closely to the date given, and the Walker is right in that timeframe. I certainly could've gone for any number of DA revolvers from the 1860s or 70s, but I feel like a Walker pistol (or maybe a smaller, more reasonable SA) would be perfectly fine for most purposes.

    For most of history, the vast majority of people were not allowed to own or carry weapons. Only soldiers and royalty would have the privildge of doing so.

    In most periods it would be a dagger or club, most could afford little else.
