June 23, 2008: Gats, Heaters, And Rods

Back in the Roarin' Twenties, everybody was packing. The booze smugglers, running from the Prohibition agents; the trench-coated detectives, their breakfast of whiskey still on their breath; even the leggy dame who walks into your diner one foggy night with a sob story. But what kind of gun were they carrying?

Pulp Guns, Volume 1 has the answer. From police revolvers, large bore rifles for big game hunters, and the blazing automatics masked crime fighters used, this 35 page PDF catalogs personal firearms from the Pulp Era. Author Hans-Christian Vortisch (GURPS High-Tech, GURPS Martial Arts: Fairbairn Close Combat Systems) covers not just the game mechanics, but the history behind each weapon, and its notable weilders.

Pulp Guns, Volume 1 has the guns you need for GURPS Cliffhangers characters, or any game set in the 1920's or 1930's. For firearms of a more military focus -- including flamethrowers, cannon, and grenades -- watch for Pulp Guns, Volume 2, coming soon.
