Before anyone says tells me that flint lock pistols require two hands to reload, I am aware and my suggestion takes that into consideration.
So, DW pistols. First off, this is a pirate setting right? We need this for thematic reasons if nothing else.
Mainly though, I want to be able to fire one pistol, then a second pistol, then switch weapon sets. The issue with duel wielding pistols is that you have to do it with both hands, but I'm suggesting that the ``proper" way to DW pistols is to not reload them at all.
If they do get reloaded, you just need to set one aside, reload it, then set the other aside, and reload that one. Now you have two loaded guns again. So fire, recover, fire, recover, reload, reload-- much like Twin Sting, but with two reload phases, which come at a penalty.
Just as DW normal weapons comes with a recovery speed bonus, I suggest that DW pistols comes with a reload penalty. So, 33% boost to recovery speed and a 33% penalty to reload time. Overall, this will make DW pistols slower, but again, for the way I would use them that's fine.
