It's 1264 and you are a rebellious minor noble standing up to King Henry III with the 6th Earl of Leicester (Lester) at the Battle of Lewes. What gun would you have armed your entourage with?

Come down, come down, thou wicked miller!
A crossbow.

None. Because there weren’t any invented yet; or at least in any quantity.

If any firearm would be available back then it would be something like this one.

None, because they didn’t exist.
