The three M’s of my weekly “Oh, seriously!?” whining. I primarily recognize it in vampire shows where the antagonist is carrying that special shotgun loaded with fire, or the heroine dual wields guns like a trained pro.
I happened upon a YouTube channel that gives you some demonstration of various weapons. The commentator, often seen in a “Professional Russian” t-shirt will often take a moment to show you just how little recoil there is. On some of those guns, i’m shocked.

Normally, I’d have listed Dragons Breath, or any other special ‘anti-vampire’ round in the logs of “Shit that don’t exist, Son.” But after watching one of FPS Russia’s videos, I’m seeing a subtle truth that I had failed to account for.
Now I need to apologize to some of my players for adjudications I’d made.
