I was damn glad Henry had his Frenchman's pecker stowed away in his coat pocket.

Source: Night Shift, story eight, Gray Matter by Stephen King.

what is a Frenchman's pecker ? I couldn't find even after googling it. But found two things:
1st - pecker: informal word for penis.
and 2nd - keep your pecker up: to try to stay happy when things are difficult.

please explain it.
thanks.

    From the pictures, that's a gun with a long barrel. It doesn't seem like the type of gun you'd carry in a pocket.

    If anyone is in Stephen's world he can carry a cannon in his pocket, it was just a .45-caliber hogleg. The way he drags things sometimes irritates me, but I must admit I have learned many words from his novels only.
