[ERROR] No.11257986 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Trying to think of a classy and unusual sidearm for a merc character. I have no idea how often he'll have a chance to use it since the game will be very roleplay heavy and low on combat (I'm actually cool with this despite playing "the muscle"), but I'm torn between an obrez and a mare's leg.

He's kind of a big, beefy, and battlescarred sort who tends to rely on muscle and intimidation.

In your opinion, which should I go for?

This seems a bit like a /k/ topic, but here's my thoughts anyway. The Mare's Leg was used by Steve McQueen's character in a 1950's western bounty-hunter show already (although it IS a really neat gun). If it wasn't for that I'd say use it. As an alternative, Rossi Arms started making a gun like the Mare's Leg called the Ranch Hand. Also check out the Circut Judge. I like the versatility of a gun that shoots 45 Long Colt and 410 shotgun shells too.

Though I do like the sawn-off idea. A lot.

>> No.11258303

I propose the Sig p210. Quite possibly one of the most accurate combat pistols ever produced (out of the box anyway), it's an expensive collectors item that's sure to turn a head or two among people that know what they're looking at. Skip the obvious and unsubtle flash, go for class.

Thank you for mentioning the Mateba. I was going to if you hadn't beat me to it.

One of - if not the - only Automatic Revolvers made for production, and is chambered at the 6'oclock position of the Cylinder, instead of the 12'oclock position like normal revolvers. This reduces the recoil (barrel is positioned closer laterally to your grip on the gun, making it easier to counter the recoil force).

Another great quirky sidearm: The Medusa Model 47

"The Medusa is a very unusual revolver produced by Phillips & Rodgers that have the ability to chamber multiple calibers in the same revolver. The Medusa chambers, fires, and extracts 25 different cartridges in the .38/9mm/.357 ammunition range. The obvious advantage of this is that the person can use the revolver for targeting shooting with a lighter and less expensive caliber and switch to a heavier caliber for self defense. "

>Maybe if you are a moron that doesn't know how to care for his weapons.

Yes and no. Automatics CAN jam more frequently then you'd think, but only if you don't invest the time required to use them properly. "Limp-wristing" will make almost any automatic jam; if you let your hand come back from the kick, the gun has no solid object to recoil against, and cannot complete a full cycle, resulting in a simple stovepipe jam.

Because of how automatics work, ammo selection is important- sometimes they'll like one ammo brand and dislike another. Just the unique interaction between all the little differences in how brands of gun are made, and different brands of ammo. Failures to feed is usually the biggest problem; to avoid that you need good magazines, decently maintained, and properly seated (slapped into the gun hard every time.)

If you don't limp-wrist, don't use underpowered ammo, and seat your magazines properly, you will almost never, ever, ever get a jam- but those simple steps take time and effort to make into automatic, combat-reliable habit. I just bought my first automatic pistol and I'm learning this personally.

A properly made automatic is not a jam-prone gun- but an inexperienced operator will make it jam. They are weapons meant for combat, for soldiers who are expected to invest time and energy in learning how their gun works and how to operate it, and they should be treated as such.

With all that said, I still love revolvers. Simple, elegant, and absolutely foolproof. The ultimate backup gun.

10mm is a fantastic cartridge from what all I hear of it. A Smith and Wesson Semi-Auto in 10mm would fit the bill for the OP, especially if it was a bit specced up. 10mm is a capable, but uncommon, cartridge, and the more popular gunmaker is Glock I believe.

Going to throw another nod back to the .44 Magnum Revolver though. S&W Model 629 with bird head grips is a pretty thing. Get a blued finish instead of the stainless and darker wood and I think it'd be beautiful.
