Means the entire thing, the works, the whole enchilada, since in the days of early firearms, they had 3 main parts- the lock, the stock, and the barrel.

"Flash in the pan", meaning started but fizzled out- from flintlocks where priming chage in pan went off, but main charge did not ignite.

And there are a bunch of others- I'll give it a shot, going off half cocked, put the hammer down, gave him both barrels, etc.

I'd expect a man "of your caliber" to recognize those.

I thought about this when i had this muzzle-loading rifle apart, barrel on the desk with the stock in my hands, while trying to decide if i should mess with the lock. (sidelock rifle)

Device for ignitin the powder charge through stored kinetical & chemical energy, metal tube for projectile directin', and a slab of wood to keep them happily together.
