You’d never point a gun at your own face, right? Well, with some guns, you have to.
I was perusing some of the fun stuff over at MyArmoury, and found this nifty page of wacky historical combined weapons. Guns with axe heads. Daggers with spring-loaded blade-catchers. Weapons that sprout… more weapons.
And pictured here: fancy-schmancy eating utensils with built-in flintlock pistols. Critical miss on your dinner roll. Take 3d damage. (Unless, that is, the barrels point away from the eating end; it’s hard to tell from the pic. If that’s the case, your dinner date eats the damage instead. It’s the Quicker Breaker-Upper! [tm])
It looks like James Bond and Q would have fit in just fine a few centuries earlier. Hmm, I haven’t kept up to date on recent GURPS books; anyone know whether the system has tackled the mixture of muskets and melee weapons?
