Why don’t they add Flintlock muskets into the game instead of 9mm pistols? I mean flintlocks were crafted at homes throughout colonial times so it would makes sense that our little guys surviving probably wouldn’t have the knowledge of a 9mms internals in their head. Flintlock systems were easy and they worked and all you needed was the ball and powder after you finished the gun, no fiddling around with the casings and making the bullets and packing them.

Hmm, really interesting! Maybe be craft small balls of gunpowder as basic part for the ammo (paper/cloth + gunpowder) and then the metalparts u wanna shoot: 1bigger ball or a package of balls (shotgun style)
to shoots once u always need 1gunpowder package + plus the bullet form one single round or shotgun style…
