Technology can be a wonderful thing, even if it's simply providing the right weapon for the job. Need a lot of firepower over a short period of time? This nice, high-caliber machine pistol has your number! Want to be able to stun your opponent, and not just obliterate him? The electrolaser can be set to a 'taser' setting! Need something that can maneuver in a very tight setting, but packs a heckuva punch? The bullpup pistol is just what you need! And finally, want the latest, state of the art high power directed energy weapon? Nothing fits that bill better than the beam pistol!
Ahh, technology. It's an armorer's dream.
