Lupin thought of the Sire de Tancarville and the sentry who had killed him with a shot from his harquebus.
Of these weapons there were two sorts, the musket and the harquebus.
Well, a lot of Terrans in the Year Zero had never seen a suit of armor, or an harquebus, or even a tinder box or a spinning wheel.
For that we might have trouble, four harquebus men and four crossbows were going.
Here's a fine blade, now, and a musket—give me a harquebus; I could shoot once, but my arm is all of a wamble now.
The Caliver was a kind of short musket or harquebus, fired by a matchlock, and from its lightness did not require a rest.
At the Admiral's command the harquebus and crossbow men laid their weapons down, though watchful eye was kept.
Improvements in the harquebus and musket, as it got to be called later on, continued to be developed from time to time.
