I got the horn - how did I miss the gun? I will have to run back.

Hmm. I just hit that chest myself and there wasn't any gun inside. There was a bracer (+1 protection/strength) and a gold key.

I have found a certain six-chamber revolver though. Not as much damage per shot as the arquebus, but the rate of fire more than makes up for it. I really AM going to run low on ammo if I'm not careful!

So far I have seen one quite nice firearm, and there are strong hints that there is something that fires cannonballs...

Yeah, I just got it from something that was using it against me. ; P
My Alchemist has 1 point in throwing weapons. And now maxed on guns. Its nice to not have to worry about it jamming, or worse, and the range in certain areas that allow it is nice.
I have like 120 ammo, he's pretty much using only the gun and bombs at this point, with the occasional shuriken.

Flintlock pistol is in the wooden box in the halls of the dead. That place where you found the Horn of Summoning. It's not even behind a secret..
Also seems to be random loot. I didn't get a gun here.

Weird. I found the Dragonbreath revolver in that chest.

I got it from the storage room in the archives, along with a strength potion.

Some of the loot must be randomized and/or distributed differently each time. IE: the dragonbreath revolver will appear *somewhere*, but you don't know where when you set out. I remember bringing that idea up way back during development - the Ultima Underworld games did that with a few things and it added a small element of unpredictability.

Which I think would be fine, if items of various types weren't so scarce. I hate sitting around with this super weak weapon for hours, then suddenly getting something 5x as strong. Where were the 2 and 3 times strength ones? : /

I just got the gun that was behind the

shrine of pain
which then immediately drops you into
SpoilerShow
a mess of mummies
thankfully my Battle Mage had just leveled before this and I put 1 point into Alchemy so I could craft some healing and energy potions. Which turned out to be a very good thing. Probably saved me in that fight.

Of course, I have 2 points in Fire Arms, the gun... it requires 3.
