Dandare

Question of the day trivia: In the long past guns with multi-barrel shot mechanism such as 'Pepper-Box' were rather popular. They were very inaccurate but their stopping power could rival that of a modern day shotgun. Nowadays things like AF2011A1 are very rare however. Needless to say, among cons of such construction are: -problematic feeding & reload mechanisms -lowered reliability -lowered accuracy But there was yet one other very down to earth reason as to why we could not have (let's say) 4 barrel .50 BGM handgun. What reason is that? First person to give a right answer would become a model for Unit 6 'weapons provider' (representing either "Seburo" - well known from Masamune Shirow series small arms company, or "Banheim Ltd." - my own 'European counterpart' to Seburo which specialize in high end ammunition and Sniper Rifles manufacturing) Contest is up until resolved! G'luck :)

      My guess is that the recoil would be so bad it would be unhealthy for regular usage.

      And your guess is good :D

      Weapons such as infamous Colt 45-70 Peacemaker or the .50 BMG revolvers had proven that at some point handgun is capable of turning bones in your wrist into wreck (though in those cases, these weapons still might be used effectively if used in 'a good way'). Laws of physics state that recoil would also increase the moment we add additional bullets being shot at very same moment.

      What it means?

      Basically 3 barrel gun bear more than 3 times recoil of 1 barrel one. Yep, more than 3 times. It's due to fact that gun weight decreased recoil power to some degree and :
      additional barrel weight is smaller than gun weight :P

      So my question now is:

      Banheim or Seburo :D?

      Same time: it would be good if you could provide me as much as possible about character (even such info like faved snack is helpful sometimes ;) ). I also assure you that by description character creation is by now kind of speciality for doodlish semi-pro me :3

      PS: And character obviously goes into fan/artbook project :)
