This rather light article should have been quick to write. It wasn’t. It was like giving birth to a baby that had bone spikes on it. Really, I probably should have skipped writing anything for this issue, but when your broke you’ll do whatever you need to to make some money. All that aside it was pretty fun to write. The research took a bloody eternity. I had to dig into just about every GURPS book with guns in it and I must have put a billion index cards on my wall as I tried to get all the information I needed together. Writing ti took nearly 50 hours (for 1,800 words!), revisions (thanks to comments from +Douglas Cole ) added another 15 hours, and editing was less than 3 hours. Because of how focused this article was (and how short!) I don’t have any extras.
