I retract my hunger, I've finally found the Volcanic Repeating Arms myself. I first saw one at the Dickens Faire this past Christmas, and was previously unable to track them down online.

Cool. I am currently coming up with concepts for a fantasy LARP character of mine, with a steampunk twist in the costume.

Heat formed plastic and brass, hand cut and riveted together.

Heeeey... What about guns FOR hands? ;)

KatarinaNavane Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2008
haha well that makes sense. But two hands, four guns seems a little excessive. With what does he fire them? On second thought, nevermind, I don't want to know :P

Actually, (Historic Weaponry Geek) in the Victorian era, you still had guns that only shot 1 or 2 bullets before needing to be reloaded. A six-shooter (so to speak) didn't come out until the late Victorian era. So it really depends upon what part of the Victorian Era this Steampunk costume hails from.

Considering the shooting style of the day (think OK Corral) lacking in armor, and anything to hide or duck behind, you have NO time to reload even a six-shooter! It's just MUCH faster to pull out another (loaded) gun & continue firing! Once you run out of bullets, it's useless. Hence the need for multiple guns.

Yours in Service,
Violin Goddess

Better too many than too few. 2 for fast shots, one for more deliberate close-ups, and, of-course, the long-range. Perfectly reasonable. I'd toss a derringer in the pocket or strap to the ankle, personally : )

You've got it precisely, Mr. Alterego. ^_Q

In addition to the tactical advantage of having various types of guns, it is always easier to simply drop a gun and pull out a new one rather than reload.

Surely you watched The Matrix, Miss Katarina? ^_~

i'm of the sort that'd use one only in an absolute emergency anyway (even my more unscrupulous alter egos frown upon such things)

I heartily agree. However, I do seem to find myself in such emergencies quite often. I suppose that is to be expected, living a life of piracy after all. ^_^

Lol, well you know some are short range firearms while others are long range... a gun for every situation. ...or some such ill-formed excuse just to have more guns. ;P

I like the photo, but for some reason, it makes your arms look short... Am I just imagining things? Perhaps it's just the angle, and the fact that your awesome arm thingers don't go all the way to your shoulder, so it just makes them look a little shorter..

I love your ensemble anyway, you know that.
