Pulp Lotta's Guns

Page history last edited by Michael 2 years, 5 months ago

The "Lotta Gang" of pirates carry and use several unusual weapons designed by Mr. Fury. Ammunition, hand grenades, aerial bombs, and other explosive devices have also emerged from the destructive workshops of the pirates.

  • short barrel, smooth bore; this double-barrel flare gun is known among Our Heroes as the "Fury Pistol". Many standard flares, smoke and gas rounds are available. Illumination, smoke, gas, beanbag, and other non-explosive rounds weigh about 0.4 lbs complete each; Fury's custom-made HE and shaped-charge rounds are about 0.66 lbs each. Outside the Lotta Gang, single-barrel launchers are actually far more common, and weigh about 2 to 4 pounds, depending on barrel length. Absolute maximum range is 150 yards.

  • a smooth-bore break-open side-by-side double-barrel gun. Muzzle velocity is relatively low at about 350 feet per second (relative to cannons and most rifles!), but even so a powerful set of buffer springs are fitted to tame recoil. The trigger allows the user to choose whether to fire the left or right barrel. Hand-made, no two are quite the same, and very few exist. Overall length with stock attached, 33" -- with stock detached, 23". The weapon can be fired without the buttstock, but it's not recommended. Sights go out to 250 yards (use 60 yards as the Call of Cthulhu range value against vehicles). Absolute maximum range is roughly 1000 yards when fired at a 45 degree angle (except for canister, which goes to about 150 yards before becoming ineffective as an attack, and about 400 yards before falling below the horizon if fired upwards at 45 degrees).

 

 

 

45mm Fury shaped charge round

 

45mm Fury canister round

 

     Available 45mm Fury rounds are beanbag, shaped-charge, tear gas, canister/buckshot, explosive, incendiary, and smoke cartridges, each about 1.2 lbs complete. The generic projectile mass is about 6 ounces; canister rounds fire 14 lead balls, each 0.429" in diameter. The recoil energy of about 400 foot-pounds is mostly absorbed by the buffer system (by comparison, the largest big game rifles generate less than 100 foot-pounds of recoil energy).

 

Special Ammunition

 

  • beanbag "less lethal" projectiles

    • Typically a canvas bag filled with sand or fine-grained lead. The non-lethality of these rounds is dubious, of course.

  • noxious gas projectiles (tear gas or similar)

    • 37mm flare:  produces cloud 3 yards wide by 5 yards long (oriented along flight path) in open; POT 16 or cough, can't see, etc.; save to nearly no effect

    • 45mm Fury:  produces cloud 3 yards wide by 5 yards long (oriented along flight path) in open; POT 16 or cough, can't see, etc.; save to nearly no effect
