As of March 2017, this profile now comes with sharp, hefty M&M game stats.

A big, heavily illustrated article about handguns in fiction. So that’s useful to have.

This content used to be presented in the same article as Weapons Locker – Modern firearms – Chapter #1 – Handguns, part 1. But the article was getting too big and with too many photos for slow connections and less powerful devices, so it’s better to cleave it in two.

Recent additions :
— Body pistol
— Changed stats for the humongous hand cannon
— Badass .45
— Fitzed revolver

Various additions and stuff (including pictures) on the 21st of February, 2017.

Our second character profile for Marvel’s Every-Man (Larry Ekler), as a pawn of Doctor Faustus. Now he’s got an “equalizer” super-weapon that drains strength to empower him, destroys intelligence and likely does other weird things.

The *only* text that comes to mind is “Mark Millar licks goats”. That’s a problem. I’m gonna check with the rest of the crew if somebody has a better intro in mind while I finish the illustrations (nice Raf Albuquerque art).
