Search for the Marble Arms Game Getter.

One was handed down to me by my grandfather, missing the stock, and with the barrel sawed off.  I remember using it as a kid.  It is time period appropriate, relatively easy to find, and uses .410.

Jean Starwind's Caster pistol immediately came to mind.  Futuristic AND cowboy, big but not TOO big.  His is a single shot (which I think adds a drama element to the already powerful spell-casting shells) but could have some sort of magazine either pump style or revolver might look right.

p.s. it's sci-fi too so no worries about forum discussions!  Tongue

you know, I always wanted a close up of that gun.  wow

Tophatdan, those shot pistols from page 3 look very nice too!!

I wonder though, as the shotgun shell pistol isn't for my persona... if perhaps the Caster Gun might work as a base for a lightning thrower for Everett... as he's a weird west type character.  Not sure about spell casting in Steampunk to be honest, that is to say I personally have trouble seeing it in my minds eyes... but if it works for Deadlands *shrug* that's another subject though

The Game Getter has elegant lines.

Or, if you want to have a gun that is visually distinctive to the point of sheer grotesquerie, you could consider a Thunder Five in .410.

Note that the Thunder Five is the only USA revolver that fires 3 inch shotshells. 

Very few users like it.  But it is visually distinctive.

How about a punch gun? (from Fallout: Tactics)



It holds a single shotgun shell one the back of the hand that gets triggered when you punch someone.

another stunning gun, this revolver fires an 11.6 mil shell, equivalent to a .448, which is about an 8 gauge or just not quite .50 cal, the interesting thing about this gun is that when issued by the austrians, it often featured a few rounds of an early 'scatter' round, which was a shot round, packed behind a traditional bullet...

the idea is that if the nearly half inch diameter, piece of flying lead didn't teach you anything about the ills of your chosen profession, the following hundred or so BBs surely would...

tho technically not a shotgun, i thought it had its place, if nothing else to show how ridiculous some of our predecessors truly were...

good show o_O

the TAURUS pistol company makes a model which will accomodate either a .45 long shell, or .20guage shot! it's small, pretty, and packs a punch iether way! plus could easily be steamed up and modded to fit your retro-future wishes!!

I was thinking Howdah pistol. Awesome things.

One devillish item that has quite captured my imagination is the Mars automatic pistol. You hardly ever see them about, they're as rare as hen's teeth. perhaps the best thing that can be said about them is that they were cleverly designed... the War Office had the following comment to make following field trials. “No man on firing this weapon, would willingly fire it again.”. it had a long-recoil system a bit like a cannon, with the barrel and breech block recoilling locked together, then the barrel running forward, and the breech block following behind. Maybe not quite what you're after, it's more a pistol that fires rifle rounds, but interesting nontheless.

o.o I am very impressed.  both by the sheer variety that you wonderful people have found (and making me a bit envious that I couldn't) as well as considering this is a bit of an old thread people are still posting to it ^^;

Again, I must issue my thanks for all the help!
