Gotta get two.  And a trenchcoat.  Sunglasses.
 
And a slow-motion machine.


I have a slow -motion machine.  Actually, lots of people have them . . .



and everyone will have one eventually . . .




. . . it's called "old age."

Based on the length and shape of the mag in that pic, I'd say it already has a staggered box mag to fit 8.  Looks like a regulator on the back too!

What a collection of surprises this baby has turned out to be, I'm very impressed and can't wait to get my hands on them and shoot some folks!!!

Okay, so here's my conundrum: Do I grab one on release, or wait a bit for reviews and final ironing of kinks? To be honest, it'll be hard pressed to compete with my G1. Pursuit Pods >10 rd. tubes > mags. However, mags are pretty fast. Problem is, they're bulky.

Both, of course.  Get a first release for the DeTrevni museum, and then buy v2 for actual play.  You know you want to.

If it makes you feel any better, I still plan on buying a second one.  Can't go single-pistol.  The real debate is what kind of holsters to get.   Old West style?  Shoulder holsters?  Back holsters?  High waist?  So many choices, so many looks to go for...

Drop-leg tactical FTW.

Edit:  Oh, and by the way, we know why you really want the trenchcoat.

(That is illegal you know.)

High on the list.  You get the badassery of the old West without the inconvenience.
 
Of course, the best solution would be to buy about a dozen pistols and just go full retard on the outfit.  Shoot out two pistols, drop them and reach for two more.
 
Losing half a dozen pistols every game could get expensive, though.

Only if you get caught.
 
And only if the "victim" is displeased, which is a problem I rarely have.

I take it the "victim" is usually amused instead?  (Snickering followed by pointing.)

I'll make an old woman blush, and make a young girl squeal.
 
Everybody's a winner.

I think the fact that I am old has already been well established.

rainman, look retarded act retarded but really not retarded.

p.s. this also reminds me of this...
FBI detective: "They exited out the front door. They had no idea what they were in for. Now they're staring at six men with guns drawn. It was a freaking ambush"
Detective Greenly:"What if it was just one guy with six guns?"
FBI detective: "Why don't you let me do the thinking, huh, genius?"
then later....
FBI detective: "So you're telling me it was one guy with six guns, and he was a senior frigging citizen?"
