****It should probably be kept in mind that a hypothetical matchlock pistol would be very underpowered for hunting large animals. Much less the gigantic super natural ones in Mononoke.

* Why did San try to [[SuckOutThePoison suck out the bullet]] in Moro's chest? With her much-more-nimble-than-paws human hands, why didn't she just reach in and pull it out? Moro's a god, she likely would have survived it. It's not like it wasn't slowly killing her anyway.
** She was sucking out blood, if I recall correctly; it's possible she was trying to remove the blood tainted by gunpowder.
** Did she even know there was a bullet in there? I mean, she was RaisedByWolves. She probably doesn't understand how guns hurt people. It's not like a bow where you can see the projectile moving, just a bang, some smoke, and an injured target.
*** She was treating her mother's bullet wound the same way one day earlier. She's seen what guns can do.
** She was trying to prevent blood poisoning, a serious threat with unsanitized injuries. It's unlikely that she could have removed the shot without medical tools whether she knew about it or not. It was most likely lodged in a bone.

*****Unlikely, she already has people loading for her, judging by the fight scenes. Considering her aim, it is probably a good choice.

* Even with Ashitaka's words [[spoiler:the Forest Spirit is dead. And who knows how many greedy humans will try to attack the forest again.]]
** [[spoiler:Ashitaka managed to get rid of the curse, but he is still a banished prince. He can never return home.]]

A subtle one. When Ashitaka sees [[spoiler:the Samurai massacre]] near the beginning, you see a warrior [[spoiler: cut a mans arm off]]. Almost right after that another soldier shouts "They're unarmed, move in!"

**** Even if she could fire a pistol one handed, could she load one? These are muzzle loaded flintlock weapons. It can be hard for people with two arms to load them well. She would always have to have someone there to load it for her. Her loss of aim due to her disablity, the wasted person on just reloading for her, and her sense of independence and efficiency would lead her to just stay back in town and administrate.

** Well, it wasn't Moro at that point. It was her zombified head taking a last crack at Eboshi before dying. There wasn't much thought involved at that stage.
