A Charm to Prevent a Gun from Firing While Looking Down the Barrel

This is a quick spell from the Albertus Magnus (sometimes called the Egyptian Secrets) which is supposed to keep a gun being pointed at you from firing. This is obviously of interest to those of us who spend time in rougher areas. A quick caveat – this spell is from a time when firearms were extremely complex mechanisms that relied on two explosions to work. Flintlocks are notoriously fickle and today’s modern flintlock enthusiast will tell you that the gun firing seven out of every ten trigger pulls is considered a rousing success. The modern gun found is much better.

So if the spell is meant to literally effect the working of the gun this is obviously not a spell for beginners and I should hope no one has the opportunity to practice this enough to get really good. I myself believe that the spell is meant to confuse and confound the trigger man and not directly effect the gun at all. As such the following should be spoken with confidence, projected like a stage actor and you should be focusing on stunning the assailant.

Say these words when faced with a gun:

The nonsensical words and their pattern makes me think this is some sort of attempted quick hypnosis. Hopefully you’ll never have to prove me right or wrong.
