: It was my assumption that she picked up a loaded gun from the battlefield and stuck it in her pocket. Later, when they are lying by the log, DDL hands her his powder horn, but my assumption was that he did so so that she could refresh the priming powder in the pan, rather than to reload the gun entirely.
