A flintlock is a firearm specific to dNetHack. Pirates start with a +0 flintlock. Because of its negative rate of fire, it will not normally fire more than one bullet even at expert skill. Furthermore, bullets fired from a flintlock have a 1 in 7 chance to misfire as if they were cursed. However, it is the only firearm that is not considered future tech and is thus wishable.
