Clipper versus clipper.

“Here, take these.” Abigail handed Prescott her Derringer and her Le Mat Revolver.  He wouldn’t like either as well as his Colts, but they’d have to do. Then she dashed into one of the store rooms to get more guns.

The rumble of cannons grew louder, then Angelica’s own blasted in answer, sending a vibration through the decks.

Abigail raced back to the rail, clutching what she’d sought:  the Spencer repeating rifle. She clutched long narrow tubes of ammunition in her other hand.

Using the rail for both cover and support for the barrel, Abigail took aim at the person at Marauder’s helm and fired. He dropped to his knees then toppled over.

Pumping the lever between each shot, she felled seven men from the rigging and one from the crow’s nest. One cannonball whizzed past, missing her by a foot and splintering the rail and deck beside her.
