Every time I see Deckard's gun I am totally mystified as to how it works.

On the bottom it looks like a revolver, but that's clearly a bolt action receiver on top. How...HOW?!

>> No.29152798

the bolt dechambers rounds in the cylinder into the firing chamber above?

first action on trigger rotates new round into line for when bolt is cycled, second action fires loaded round and pops bolt into chambering position

>> No.29152842

so then, the cylinder, I guess, is a very old manual version of a round selector; pull first action until desired round is in chambering position, cycle bolt to load, first action-second action pull fires, cycle bolt to load primed round, et al

There is two barrels on the gun, one for the revolver and another that the bolt is for, hence two triggers. I think it fires darts or some other android-effective round from the second barrel.

my barbarian uses the traditional greatsword. he doesn't sharpen it, he doesn't sheath it, he doesn't revere it or respect it in any way except through combat

he lost a greatsword in a gelatinous cube, one in a rust monster, one in an underground river, one through a critical miss (he let go of it and threw it, then couldn't find it).

yet Stills the Barbarian always finds a new weapon - proof positive of Kord's patronage.

No, not at all. Take a pump-action shotgun. Shorten the barrel, remove the stock and replace it with a "pistol grip" ala the Mossberg 500 (pic related) and then replace the loading mechanism with an oversized revolver capable of holding six shells, cycling when you pump, effectively giving you three/six shots before needing to reload.

Also has two triggers.
My guess is that it has some sort of funky secondary fire, bolt-action, high caliber deal used for taking down heavier targets. Perhaps the cocked bolt system functions in tandem with an integrated primary hammer, allowing the pistol to fire two rounds in rapid succession faster than the single mechanism alone, creating a 'bullet spear' like the AN-94.

Concealed carry, and the inherent threat that your victim can be armed without you knowing it, does much to discourage crime, just as the knowledge that your soon to be victims aren't armed emboldens crooks(see Australia where armed robberies and forced entries skyrocketed following the country's weapon restrictions).

That's because there isn't actually that much reason for it. You inevitably end up with silliness like "9mm is 2d6 so .45 ACP is 2d6+1 and .40 S&W is 1d10+2 but .38 Special is 1d6+3 and blah blah blah." And then everyone just takes whatever caliber gets them the highest damage dice anyway.

Going much beyond "small pistol/medium pistol/magnum pistol" is basically just masturbation for gun aficionados.

Damage is a bigger deal than magazine size, generally. I literally can't remember a PC ever managing to empty his pistol in a firefight before it ended one way or another. Definitely not in Call of Cthulhu. Maybe once in 40k games.

ZF-1. Its light; handles adjustable for easy carrying; good for righties and lefties; breaks down into four parts; undetectable by X-ray; ideal for quick discreet interventions. A word on firepower.

The only part that's honestly a problem is the giant red button that kills you and everyone else in the area if it bumps into something. Seriously, WTF?

Anyway, I think besides that, the weapon would probably be fine (dunno how ergonomic it is, though). You don't actually have to use any of the secondary stuff. Like, in the army, everyone's banned from using burst fire (even if the goal is to waste all the bullets in as small amount of time, sergeants SPAZ THE HELL OUT), so additional options just wouldn't be used normally.

Honestly, the Zorg gun has bigger problems than the self destruct - between the plethora of options and the boom button, I suspect that the weapon is meant to be a commando/spy weapon - a gun for every eventuality in a small package, plus a deniability button.

Modern day tech? Probably just a boring old M92FS. Its reliable, pretty accurate and it has decent capacity so you can fill any meatbag up close full of holes in a short amount of time, plus there's the added bonus of being able to say "-and then i pulled off my beretta".

Ye olde tech? Since every black powder firearm is slow as shit and the only way to get some dakka is to carry a bunch of flintlock pistols which ends up crazy expansive. I'd just cut the chase and get a dragoon pistol instead with all the inconvenients and benefits that come with carrying a pocket blunderbuss, such as being able to blow up someone's face at point blank assuming you hit, or if you're creative and have easy access to alchemy, set a bunch of dudes on fire in a cone with a dragon's breath cartridge or knock someone out cold non-lethally with saltshot.

No budget or no access to firearms? Just carry a fuckton of knives dissimulated in pouches or in bandoleers hidden under your clothes. Never worry about being caught unarmed if you lose your sword! Easy way to cut your way to freedom if you happen to get tied up! Make cool tricks in bars and impress friends and wenches alike! Prepare delicious dishes or perform emergency surgery! Shank two niggas at once! Shank one nigga twice! Participate in blood rituals to summon the dark one from his ancient slumber! Or just start chugging them into people's faces until you attain complete arbitrary control over time and space! The possibilities are endless!

Something like the gravgun; you have a gauntlet that creates a force field "Tether" around whatever you're throwing, that cancels most of it's weight and apparent mass and allows you to throw it like a sling projectile. Once you release the mass comes back, but it retains the velocity it had on release. Maybe with some kind of lightsaber esque cutting tool for carving out the projectile and close combat.

Basically a sling you can use to throw lamp posts or car engines, like they were river rounded pebbles.

Could be a grenade on a string like a yoyo. Wind it up and pitch it for more distance on your explosives. Also the string would wind back into the grenade, working as a fuse. The further out the string is stretched, the more distance you get from the throw and the longer it takes to explode.

It also take reloading the projectile out of the equation, as launch system and weapon are one in the same. You get as many uses as you have grenades.

Double the effectiveness by being able to remove the string entirely, using it as a garrote, while the grenade proper can be programmed for remote detonation, proximity with ally detection, or just regular grenade mode. A truly versatile weapon for an agent, but not so much a footsoldier.
